The book is on the table. There is a book on the table.

Postby h34 » 2016-09-01, 7:23

What would be the most natural translation of these two sentences if they answer the questions:

a. Where is the book?
b. What is on the table?

Is the sequence book - table normally reversed in sentence b? (I wonder if the sequence is decisive in languages that don't mark definiteness).

[flag=]en[/flag] a. The book is on the table.
b. There is a book on the table.
[flag=]de[/flag] a. Das Buch liegt auf dem Tisch - "The book lies on the table".
b. Auf dem Tisch liegt ein Buch - "On the table lies a book".

[flag=]es[/flag] a. El libro está sobre la mesa - "The book is (situated) on the table". :?:
b. Hay un libro sobre la mesa - "There-is (exists) a book on the table". :?:

[flag=]ru[/flag] a. Книга лежит на столе - "Book lies on table". :?:
b. На столе лежит книга - "On table lies book". :?:

[flag=]lv[/flag] a. Grāmata ir uz galda - "Book is on table". :?:

Trying Irish, mostly not because I think I'm the most qualified to do so, but because it confuses me that what sounds natural to me is inconsistent between the two sentences (fronting the answer for b. but not for a.). I hope someone (well, I guess linguoboy) can say something about whether they would use a different order.

[flag=]en[/flag] a. The book is on the table.
b. There is a book on the table.
[flag=]de[/flag] a. Das Buch liegt auf dem Tisch - "The book lies on the table".
b. Auf dem Tisch liegt ein Buch - "On the table lies a book".

[flag=]it[/flag] a. È sul tavolo. - "It's on the table"
b. Il libro. - "The book"
[flag=]es[/flag] a. El libro está sobre la mesa - "The book is (situated) on the table". :?:

In the Circum-Baltic area the use of "to lie" (on the table) is quite common, be it in Uralic, Balto-Slavic or Germanic languages, hence:

(et)Raamat lebab laual (=(fi)Kirja "makaa" pöydällä, (fi)makaa=(et)magama)

(lv)Grāmata guļ uz galda
(ltg)Gruomota guļ iz golda
(sgs)Kninga gol ont stala
(lt)Knyga guli ant stalo ((lv)gulēt = (lt)gulėti)

are also acceptable.. Just a side note here
