Finnish to English translations [Non-PRO]
Finnish term or phrase:Nainen lukee kirjaa.
A single sentence I have been asked to find out what it means for a university course on using diffreent sources to find information.
Explanation: Nainen = woman. Finnish does not use articles and the translator must infer the correct use of "the" or "a" before a noun.
lukee = reads, is reading
kirjaa = book (partiitive case of "kirja", indicating she has not read the entire book at this point. www.finnishtrans.com
