Căutaţi o greşeală!: I’m trying to establish a new game. We will write a sentence containing at least one mistake and your task is to discover it and write new “corrupted” sentence. I’m beginning:

Al cui este cartea aceasta?

A cui este cartea aceasta

Cred că asta joc e distractiv

Eşti vreo singurul cine crede, Jeremy...:(

Da, "A cui este cartea aceasta" e corect.

Cred că jocul ăsta e distractiv.

next: Am întrebat pe Maria dacă are timp.

Nu e deloc adevărat, Spilka! Şi eu cred că e o idee foarte bună. :)
Pe de altă parte, am crezut că noi, vorbitorii nativi de română, nu ar trebui să participăm. Dacă îmi dai însă aprobarea, o să mă alătur vouă imediat. :p

Lore, as a founder of this thread I give you (and other native speakers) permissions to:
1) correct us
2) write us new corrupted sentences
3) write answers, if the question is difficult or nobody reacts for 2 days

Are you happy? :D

Extremely :D
Now, guys, laziness still becomes me so please try to react within those 2 days Spilka allowed. :p
Yes, I am only kidding but please, check out this game; we all know the best way to learn is from mistakes..and if you haven't made them yet...even better.

What do you think is wrong with Spilka's sentence:
Am întrebat pe Maria dacă are timp.


Jeremy87

Am întrebat-o pe Maria dacă are timp.

Să vorbeşte cu noi, te rog!

Yes, I hope "Am întrebat-o pe Maria dacă are timp" is correct.

Vorbeşte cu noi, te rog (or: te rog să vorbeşti cu noi)

next: Am fost acolo cu nişte prieteni ai mei.

I was looking for Să vorbească (subjunctive inflection)

and maybe I'm blind but.. I don't see anything wrong with your sentence o_O, unless you mean to include am fost acolo cu nişte prieteni de-ai mei


spilka

As I see, it's hard to nail you, Jeremy.
"Am fost acolo cu nişte prieteni de-ai mei" is correct again.

Români (sau curând românce), scorniţi-ne lui Jeremy şi mie ceva mai dificil! :) Eu nu mai am nici o idee.

Florile lui Ioana s-au ofilit.

i don't know how difficult that is...


spilka
Friday 25th of November 2005 09:27:33 PM
Florile Ioanei s-au ofilit.

E corect?

Allow me to offer a new wrong sentence:

"Ce mai faceti tuturor?"


spilka
Friday 25th of November 2005 09:52:06 PM
you mean "how are you, all"?

It'd be Ce mai faceţi toţi.

Ce mai faceţi tuturor would mean something like What are you doing to all.


lorelai

Haha, look how's talking about being hard to nail. :D

OK, if you know what's wrong with the next sentence...than you know more that a significant number of native Romanians :p. I mean it.

Vreau să îi urez fratelui meu, care este ziua lui mâine, multă sănătate.


Jeremy87
Saturday 26th of November 2005 05:01:22 AM
I don't know but I'll give it a shot...

Vreau să îi urez fratelui meu, căruia este zilei lui mâine, multă sănătate

I can't think of a sentence now though..


lorelai
Saturday 26th of November 2005 05:24:31 AM
Good, Jeremy! You got to the mistake. :) Would anybody else like to attempt a correction?


Ana_Drobot
Saturday 26th of November 2005 05:38:43 PM
Vreau sa ii urez fratelui meu, a carui zi este maine, multa sanatate.

I don't know if it's correct for me to participate, as I am both a Romanian and a philologist, but still... I couldn't keep myself from it!

Try this:
Nu suport s-a vad ceva inncorect.


spilka
Monday 28th of November 2005 09:29:56 PM
Cred că Nu suport să văd ceva incorect e corect. :)

Încercaţi asta:

Doamna căruia i-am adresat vorbeşte româneşte.

I hope this is correct:
Doamna căreia i-am adresat vorbeşte româneşte.

It's the reflexive form of the verb in this case-"a se adresa (cuiva)"
In our sentence "cuiva" refers to the lady to whom i addressed.

There is the simple form "a adresa (o întrebare cuiva)"(to address a question to someone),as in the following example:
I-am adresat o întrebare,dar nu mi-a răspuns.
I addressed a question to him,but he didnt answer.

The "I" there refers to the person whom i addressed the question to (lui>> -i).Its the dative clause: to him=lui and this "lui" becomes "i-".

Hope i didn't complicate things too much...

Next: Credemă, nu m-ai pot!!!

Crede-mă, n-am putut!

Măcar sper. N-am ştiut ce anume ai vrut să zici. Estim doar...

Sunt sigur că am făcut nişte greşeli în ceea ce am scris. Ar putea fi exerciţiu următor, ha ha.
