I'm still answering "the woman" instead of "the man" since in spanish we use "la" for femenine nouns :s
Is there a distinction between "the man drinks" and "the man is drinking"?
sorry, i just started learning and i'm confused why it is "kafon". Is it because its an object noun?
Because of "accusative"! The coffee is the object suffering the action (of drinking), thus you have to put a "-n" on the end of the word!
Why does not -kafejo- need the "n" of the accusative as other sentences like - il trinkas bongustan cxocoladon- in which both words after the verb are in the accusative ?
( i'm suggesting: "la viro trinkas kafon en la kafejon" )
