"You are a student."
Can you put «є» in «ви є студент?» or is it an error / implied. is there exceptions ? Thanks
In Ukrainian is implied, if you put it there it would sound foreign. But, to be pedantic, you could use "to be" in some contexts to emphasize, e.g. "But you ARE a student" "Але ти є студент".
When you have a positive "A is B" sentence and BOTH A and B are nouns, dash is required by Ukrainian punctuation conventions (except in come colloquial-style sentences and some special cases):
- Моя бабуся — письменниця.
- Мій друг — водій.
No dash is required when one of these is a pronoun (though one might still use a dash for emphasis):
- Це моя машина.
- Він водій.
Same in questions and negative sentences. No dash is usually there:
- Гаррі студент?
- Моя сестра не вчителька.
good for you for trying out all these languages! i've heard Norwegian is really tough
