duolingo you literally just told me you were going to order four kilograms of tomatoes dont act like 1 kilogram is bread is a large amount
Haha, that's what I love about Duolingo. I'm pretty good with my English, but sometimes some grammar rules slip my mind and Duolingo catches them. This is good, as I have to write a lot of reports for college.
If multe is an adverb, then shouldn't the sentence be "Unu kilogramo da pano estas multa"? Or would there be some other way to say it?
Hi!, after "estas" when there is not any subject in the sentence, you must use an adverb, not an adjective. It's a rule of Esperanto. Hope this helps, excuse for my English, I'm not a native speaker. Regards.
As a native English speaker, "one kilogram bread" doesn't really sound right.
Bread is a mass noun, and when you put an adjective in front of it, you should still be able to have any amount of it. You could have a little bit of rye bread or blue bread or delicious bread, or you could have a ton of it. However, you can't have 10 kilograms of 1 kilogram bread.
You are still able to say "a 200-pound man", since you can still have just one 200-pound man, or 500 200-pound men.
I think of should be there. I don't know why, but it just doesn't seem right and is slightly confusing in some way. I recommend typing out the whole sentence just to be sure.
It is not accepted, I have just answered that and got wrong. I understand why now :)
What about one "bread's kilogram"? Since it's kilogramo da pano. [95% joking, 5% surprised to see how it actually makes no sense]
Why isn't it "multa" in this case? Unu kilogramo, which is what's being described, should take an a-vorto not an e-vorto, right?
A kilo of bread isn't that much considering a normal loaf is 800g.
I know it was mentioned in an old comment above but I still don't understand why it is multe and not multa. It is describing the the subject which is a noun, right?
I'm struggling with that too. A response to the earlier post it got mentioned in, said that where there is no subject, an adverb (-e word) is used instead of an adjective (-a word). But there is clearly a subject here: the noun-phrase "a kilo of bread".
hm. It errored "A litre of water is not lots", saying it was A lot,but Ithisgot through fine.
Well, in English you cannot always substitute "a lot" and "lots" for each other, only sometimes. Even if with plural liters (or litres). You'd say, "Five liters is not a lot of water," rather than, "Five liters is not lots of water."
"One kilogram of bread is plenty" was accepted. I rather doubted it would be, but I decided to try it.
