"Petveturu kun mi!"

Translation:Hitchhike with me!

June 29, 2015



Am I the only one to think of traveling with/driving a pet when i see the word petveturi?

August 26, 2015


Jes, kaj ankaû mi pensis pri wind tunnels.

I assume the etymology is "peti" (ask) + "veturi" (travel) = "petveturi" (ask for a ride). Does that sound about right?

Very good. And this is how a lot of Esperanto terms develop(ed).

Petveturi is a word I've never seen - but it works.

But hitchhiking is not a very safe sport.

December 5, 2015


That's why you want someone to do it with you.

I just tried to read that as "Hitchcock" with me!!

Duolingo is trying to rope me into illicit activities.

    I think he was rather excited about it because he loves rare orthographical patterns. (As do I)

    'Bookkeeper' - three pairs of doubled letters in there!

    October 2, 2016


    But double "h"!! It's a curiosity

    July 23, 2015


    Not really. One 'h' is part of the digraph 'ch', while the other is freestanding, so there's nothing particularly odd about it in this case. Now, if you had a double freestanding 'h', that would be another matter.

    July 30, 2015


    I know why it is like it is, but I've never seen another word with double H.

    July 30, 2015


    It was originally two words connected with a hyphen, but English speakers tend to remove hyphens and just jam words together into one word.

    November 1, 2015


    Most of the words on that list have the first H as part of a digraph and are essentially multiple words crammed together.

    Words like aurghh and Shh being notable exceptions.

    November 1, 2015


    Briar. That removal of hyphens is actually part of Englishes rules of word construction. Hyphens are used to create words which are not widely used but are craftable with two words. As they become more widely used, the hyphen is no longer needed for people to understand it as one word.

    "La Petveturista Gvidlibro pri la Galaksio" seems to be a better translation (https://eo.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Petveturista_Gvidlibro_pri_la_Galaksio). Ne paniku!

    Dankon, kaj ne forgesu vian bantukon.

    February 18, 2017


    but it is illegal! :(

    March 29, 2016


    Generally it's legal. Some places with bad human-rights records have anti-vagrancy laws that can get you in trouble, and you can't hitchhike on restricted-access motorways. But it's generally better to hitch from gas-station to gas-station anyway.

    Or at least, that's what I've heard. I don't feel safe doing it myself (stupid sexist culture) and none of my guy friends are that adventurous.

    September 18, 2016


    I've hitched all over the US and Europe with few to no problems, but I have seen a few things that have made me very cautious anymore. However, if you are out there waving your thumb, and I come by, I will seriously consider giving you a lift.

    And my human rights record seems to be pretty decent, even to my teenagers.

    October 3, 2016


    then it means it's (the person that is asking you to hitchhike) up to something...

    May 31, 2016


    Is this like I'm going hitchhiking, come with me or I'm hitchhicking, give me a lift

    June 4, 2017


    I think the "kun" says that when you do what I ask, we will both be hitchhiking.

      That is strange. I put "Hitchhike with me!" and Duolingo told me that another correct solution is "Hitchhike with me!" I have checked, and both are exactly the same.

      Sounds like a dyslexic trying to request a Jim Carey movie. "Ace Petveturi"
