I'm not just learning Esperanto right now, I'm revising my high school biology :D
There has been debate among scientists, yet no one has been able to either confirm or deny the existence of Christopher Walken outside of sailor tales and brief film clips taken from deep sea cameras attached to oil rigs.
I heard they caught a Christopher Walken off the coast of Fiji, but we won't know until we see pictures.
Oh, come on, honestly, it is all a government plot. Christopher Walken is at this moment being used as a genetically-modified super-bio-weapon against the (Iraqis/Iranians/Russians/French (he is controlled by the Americans)/insert name of own country).
I just had the most bizarre Fatboy Slim and Christopher Walken experience. It lasted about 30 minutes. I enjoyed the lesson: Walk without rhythm and you don't attract the worm. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Insects have six legs, spiders have eight, so they clearly do not fit the bill.
Crustacea are another group in the Anthropod family so ponder that next time you eat a crab shrimp or lobster
I answered "Spiders are not insects" and it was correct. However, after I noticed the Esperanto sentence was not plural. Shouldn't my answer be incorrect?
Exactly my question, but still everyone here is talking about how spiders aren't insects... :)
My guess would be they marked it correct because the two English sentences are equivalent, and in fact using the plural is more common in English. Using the singular in sentences like this always sounds a bit stilted to me (in English).
i answered "spiders are not insects" and it marked it as correct, but it seems fishy to me...but then again when we say spiders in english its not directly plural but categorical or whatever...short story long...should my answer have been marked as inccorect?
Consider the difference between "Spiders are not insects" and "A spider is not an insect". There is no difference.
okay, thanks, thats why i didt report it...you know when you start thinking on something too hard that it all seems wrong..lol sometimes just walking away for a while does the trick
Squashes all the same though! :D
(But really, try not to kill spiders. Thank you.)
Tell that to the guy with the giant spider in the top corner of his room. (me)
And that's why Aranea Serket is named as such.
(Why am I the only Homestuck fan?)
The spider hate in this comment section is highly disappointing. Araneoj estas helpaj amikoj :(
