Take the L out of the last word, and it's a much more interesting sentence...

He collects antique cattle? I suppose it is.

Oh, out of the English word! Those might be "pafarkojn" in Esperanto.

"Antikva" sounds like "Hatikva"

as "bov" relates to "cow", do we have a reference to udders here? In any case, I now have a great mnemonic!

The 'l' makes the difference. Bovo is cow. There is no reference to cows nor udders.

bowl = bovlo

You don't need "Ĉu" when you have a different question word: "Kiu." http://en.lernu.net/lernado/gramatiko/konciza/demandoj.php

Is there a present participle form of "antikva" and if so, does it cause robots to explode?
