He can touch his nose with his tongue

Post by Xing » Thu 19 Mar 2015, 16:04

This is a phrase from a Ukrainian phrasebook I bought.

:eng:
He can touch his nose with his tongue.

:ukr:
Він може торкнутися носа власним язиком
Vin mozhe torknutysya nosa vlasnym yazykom


(That's how it appears in the phrasebook. I'm not sure how to gloss or pronounce it - maybe someone could help me??)

At first, I was not sure about the usefulness of such a phrase. But when I googled it, it received far more hits than 'a man is in the tree', which figured in a recent TC.

While I'm not 100% certain of the pronunciation, the gloss should be accurate.

Just an alternative German translation, which might be less accurate but maybe more natural, IMHO.
:de-hh:

That's an interesting clause. It's asking which of the body parts is incorporated.

Maybe it's clear enough without the possessives:
