Hey listeners! Can you come up with a sentence using these words?
Thank you for your comment!
Quite impressed how you have also tried use the correct grammatical cases! :thumbsup:
I think you have heard these in speech and picked them from there, well done.
You wanted to say “I am walking and watching falling leaves”?
“Minä kävelen ja katson putoavia lehtiä.”
In this case you need to use the partitive case for the words ‘falling leaves’, ‘putoavat lehdet’, as you are watching something. One reason is, because you can’t define the exact amount of the leaves, and also because the action of ‘watching’ is still going on.
We have covered this topic, the partitive case, shortly for example in this lesson: https://www.finnishpod101.com/2013/08/19/absolute-beginner-7-let-me-have-some-delicious-finnish-blueberry-pie/
Keep up the good work Donald!
I think I made two mistakes. Should I have put “katson klo”? And should I also have put “putoavaja lehdejä”?
Minun kavelan jä katsoan putoavat lehdet.
