Is there any important difference between 'I don't have a cat' and 'I have not a cat?'
"I have not a cat" isn't something a native English speaker would say. They mean the same thing, but definitely use "I don't have a cat."
Well, but is there any difference in meaning to "I do not have a cat"?
Like Irish, we have a LOT of dialects and idioms. I think neither Duo, nor many of the English speakers account for that.
I tried saying "a cat is not at me" which would be the literal translation but was marked wrong
