"Grandpa is there."
15 CommentsThis discussion is locked.
I am a native speaker and in my family we use "Дідо", "Дідусь" & "Дідуньо" for "Grandfather".
We always said: "Дідо Є там." ("Grandfather IS there." The verb 'is/є' was always included - never omitted.)
(We never used "дід", as it refered to 'an old man' which could be construed as derogatory. We like to show respect to/for our elders. )
It seems that both the question 'Where is grandfather' and the answer 'There is grandfather' are the same in Ukrainian. Perhaps the pronouciation makes the difference, thus hard to learn by DuoLingo. The 'same' in English, because the difference between this question and answer are just the W-here, and T-here....
