"Hello nice to meet you - OOF"

What's with all the people falling? They are all pretty clumsy.

You don't know your Elvis songs, I see.

Could this be used like "fall in love", or just physical falling?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Luis_Domingos

He literally fell :) "He falls in love" is rendered as "Li enamiĝas".

He is in love and is so enamored that he isn't watching where he is going and trips over a rock and he falls down...

Why arent the x-form for the "s"'s working for any of these exercises? E.g. sxi and sxin


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JedahVoulT

I used sxin and was right, maybe they corrected it

Can fali be used to talk about falling in love (or otherwise figuratively falling)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Takxsiy

Be carefull with the figuratively fallings.

"Fali" = "come down thanks to grabity".

"Fall in love" is an English expresion, in other languages no one "comes down" in love. So, in Esperanto that English point of view is not used.

fall in love = en'am'igxi

love (someone) = am'i

lover = am'anto

So can you never repeate the subjuct in an additional phrase? ie. Is: "li renkontas šin kaj li falas" wrong?

Why is it falas and not fali?
