Sentence #2162245 — belongs to FeuDRenais
Tom reached for a dictionary that was on the very top of the shelf.
eng info
CK 2018-06-04 08:53 link permalink

Annotation:

[#2162245] Tom reached for a dictionary that was on the very top of the shelf.

This implies that there were 2 or more dictionaries on the shelf.

Compare it with the following sentence which implies there was only one dictionary.

[#1867971] Tom reached for the dictionary on the top shelf. (CK) *audio*


(Note that "the top shelf" and "the very top shelf" refer to the same shelf.)

Sentence #774187 — belongs to FeuDRenais
Christopher Columbus did not find fame. It was fame that found Christopher Columbus.

An alternate, perhaps more natural, way to say this would be as follows, using pronouns.

Christopher Columbus didn't find fame. It found him.

@Pfirsichbaeumchen, some of the linked sentences used "door" and others "window". I added a new sentence with "window" and adjusted the links.

@CK

I attempted to link [#6848555] to [#2610593] but inputted the punctuation wrongly. This sentence can be deleted as it is a duplicate.

Thanks

Sentence #574244 — belongs to FeuDRenais
Powder is soluble in water.
eng info
odexed 2017-11-03 09:14 link permalink

I agree with deniko on this. If this sentence is not true, it should have some tag like 'false' or 'not true' but it's not that bad itself. This could be used in a book where the main hero thinks that 'every powder is soluable in water'. Besides, it's just an example, we could replace the word 'powder' with some other matter. I don't think you should delete it.

Sentence #574244 — belongs to FeuDRenais
Powder is soluble in water.

deniko 2017-11-03 09:05 link permalink

> The word "powder" is used incorrectly because not every powder is soluable in water, so all such a sentence can serve is to confuse people.

Whether it was used correctly or incorrectly doesn't depend on whether every powder is soluble in water or not. It depends on the intended meaning.

If the author of the sentence didn't mean to state that all powder is soluble of water and wanted to say that only some particular powder is, then they did use the word incorrectly.

If they meant to say that all powder is soluble, they used the word correctly, and the sentence is fine in every other respect.

Moreover, even if the author did use the word incorrectly, there are already translations with the same meaning, and this sentence matches them perfectly.

Pfirsichbaeumchen 2017-11-02 20:56 link permalink

Whether or not it's grammatically correct is really of a secondary nature. When it comes to content like this, sentences should also not state falsehoods. It's part of maintaining a certain quality. The word "powder" is used incorrectly because not every powder is soluable in water, so all such a sentence can serve is to confuse people. You shouldn't create sentences just to make a point. ☺

Sentence #574244 — belongs to FeuDRenais

deniko 2017-11-02 18:55 link permalink

Is this sentence grammatically incorrect or does it sound unnatural? I don't think so. Because of this I believe there is no reason whatsoever to delete or change it.

Tatoeba is not Wikipedia. "All mammals are cats" is as good a sentence as "All cats are mammals". There are no requirements for sentences to be true, and there shouldn't be such requirements.

You’re absolutely right. So, should we change this? Another solution would be to just delete it.

If you revert this back to what it was, then it will still match the Japanese sentence and perhaps other languages, too.

This is why TRANG asks us not to change sentences that are correct.
