What did the bear ever do wrong? :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FredCapp

He stole the beer from a couple of other languages.

And he can easily bear with some people's dislike...

Do they drive you berserker?

I take personal offense to this excercise.

It ran after me, according to a different lesson.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FredCapp

But obviously, didn't catch you.

So, Stephen Colbert is saying this, right?

Why wasn't "but" accepted as "except"? I like all animals but bears was marked wrong


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FredCapp

I like all animals but bears … what? The sentence feels incomplete.

… but bears are especially wonderful?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Saa_Fred
  • "except bears" would be the more customary American English, which is also accepted.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Acie721335

I'm a native English speaker and "I like all animals but bears" doesn't particularly make sense to me. "apart from bears", maybe. But maybe that's not Duo's programming.

But your sentence doesn't make sense to me.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Saa_Fred

Which English are you a native speaker of? These days, "but" as a synonym for "except" is probably more common in the UK and Commonwealth countries than the U.S. or Canada, but it's still acceptable usage.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MatejMurn1

"i like everyone but you", or "i did all of my tasks but one" is a very common way to interchange except for but

Come on, bears are cute as hell

In my youth I fed and cleaned the cages of the bears in a local zoo. They had all been hand raised and were used to people, so I was really only in danger from the Kodiak Bear. The black bears and the grizzly would roll over on their backs and insist that I scratch their bellies with the rake. Sometimes we played, but bears are like big, powerful, dogs who don't always know their own strength. I was never seriously hurt, but watching the grizzly cower away when I told her "Bad girl!" was a definite sight to behold.
I don't expect wild bears to respond like that, but I always remember the tame bears when I encounter their untamed relatives.
And note: I'm still alive.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MatejMurn1

yup, just like big dogs.. when raised with care, the only danger is them not realizing their strength

...og ulven, som spiser meg.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Saa_Fred

Stokker, stokker bjørner.

Jeg elsker Bompibjørnene!

Finally a sentance I will say often.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Scary_Fiend

Same here. Bears are soulless, godless, killing machines.

They're oversized puppy dogs who think that you have their dinner.

Please, give us our dinner?
