Why is "these are my mice" not an option? "It is my mice" doesnt sound like a fluid translation

Yes, report it. "It is my mice" is conflicting because "it is" designates singular while "mice" is plural.

Should be "These are my mice"

This definitely needs correction. I'm not aware of any dialect that would accept "it is my mice" or "this is my mice".

This would mean "These mice of mine". You don't need to decline "это" when it is an equivalent of the English "this is/these are". See this guide for more: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/11536858

"It is my mouses" probably shouldn't be an accepted translation, no?

Why мыши is pronounced "mashaa" ?

I would like to know this too. Why is the "и" at the end of мыши pronounced "ah"?

1 year ago

https://www.duolingo.com/ovosahib

Ш is a hard consonant, so it makes the soft и turn into its hard counterpart ы when spoken. Because of the 7-letter spelling rule we still have to spell it with an и though.

There is no such word as "мыша". A mouse is "мышь".
