"Your bear drinks beer."
Translation:Via urso trinkas bieron.
I've just seen it on Vortaro.net, but I'm confused because Reta Vortaro says: "PIV2 precizigas, ke drinki estas „trinki alkoholaĵon en nemodera kvanto“. Tio ŝajnas troa: supozeble ĉe la edziĝfesto en la Kana Galilea ne temis pri maldecaĵoj, kaj la vorto „drinkejo“ ne neprigas tion". So what meaning is really valid? :/
This is a common question. Here is an answer that I gave to it in the past. This answer is approved (by way of Facebook "like") by such notable names as Bertilo Wennergen, Tim Morley, Anna Lowenstein - two of the three being members of the Akademio - and I believe Lee Miller sent me a private message essentially agreeing with it. So what meaning is really valid? The following one is:
Drinki very clearly means to drink to excess - boozing it up. Having a wine with dinner or a casual evening with cocktails with friends is trinki. Trinkejo would generally be understood to be an establishment that sells alcoholic beverages - although this can vary with the cultural baggage of the speaker. Drinkejo would very clearly sell alcohol.
Trinkejo and drinkejo are often treated as synonyms. My own usage is that drinkejo is more of a boozery or "dive bar" - but there are other reasons you'll hear these being interchanged. Sometimes people misunderstand the difference between trinki and drinki. Sometimes they want to be very clear that it's not a tea bar. Sometimes they want to teach a new word from a word list in an instructional reader or online course. I wouldn't go so far as to say that drinkejo is necessarily pejorative, but in some contexts it can be.
Now, if I really wanted to open a can of worms, I would mention "trinkajxo" vs "drinkajxo." A beverage (like wine) vs a getting-drunk drink.
I doubt they forgot that fact. It's much more likely that, given how much behind-the-scenes work there is, the sheer number of sentences they have to manually encode (there is no algorithm to handle it automatically), they initially favored the basics for the beta release and are filling in the gaps bit by bit, relying in part on user reports to remind them of things that got overlooked or haven't gotten to yet.
