I got it correct with "Gxuu vian vojagxon!" . Great learning experience.
This is the first time I've gotten this sentence and I didn't know anything about this at all. I hadn't learned this vocabulary before
This sometimes happens with Duolingo. It used to bother me, but now I find it really nice, because I keep learning new things
And now you're more likely to remember what it means next time!! :)
I thought "bona vojagxo" would work here. Does anyone know why it doesn't?
Because the full sentence is along the lines of, "[You have a] nice trip!" Since "nice trip" is the preterite, it takes the accusative case.
FWIW, it's the same structure, and for the same reason, for other common phrases such as Bonan tagon.
In English "preterit" is a verb form, "nice trip" is the direct object which is why it takes the accusative case in Esperanto.
You mean "predicate" because "preterite" is a fancy word for past tense.
That makes sense. Thanks for the help!
