yeah when you answer "it's my parents' fridge" it corrects it to the incorrect "it's my parents fridge"
"This is my parents' fridge" is the main answer, your version should work without problems as well...
Did you report it? They're more likely to fix the report than to see this particular commentary.
I tried to put "This fridge is my parents' " in the non-typing version and it said it was a typo. Which I guess makes sense because I couldn't put the apostrophe
There would not be an apostrophe (') after parents in your construction.
Of my parents = parents'
It could. Polish genitive is equivalent of both Saxon genitive ('s/s') and the "of the" form. You might try reporting it.
It's accurate, but not idiomatic. That's just not how we'd say that in English.
Oh I get it. So if I wanted to say something like the woman's dog, would it be,"Kobiecy psa"?
I wrote, "This is my parents' fridge," and it said that it is "almost correct" and "corrected" it to "parents fridge." It also said that another possible translation is, "This is my parents' refrigerator."
I don't really know how to report this issue because it counted it as correct…
The same problem was mentioned above in the comments. The accepted answers all have apostrophe when needed. It's understandable that without it it's accepted, as Duo doesn't mark interpunction, but I have absolutely no idea why it suggests a version without an apostrophe.
And the freewrite reports are full of comments about it, some of them really long... We would love to fix it, but I don't think there's anything that could be done from our side.
I think someone made a mistake when adding this answer to the system. It should be, "This is my parents' fridge," but it said it was almost correct and gave me, "This is my parents fridge." This also surprised me because usually it ignores all punctuation
I just told you that there are no such mistakes in the system. Not from our side anyway.
That is odd, maybe it is glitched. I have had some really random glitches in the past. For example, one time when I was doing a "strengthen skills" lesson, it literally switched from Polish to Esperanto half way through. I think because I left it alone for a few hours and it somehow reset even though it saved half of the progress from Polish for the Esperanto lesson. I wish I finished it so I could have seen what skills it would have improved xD
it's feminine. I don't think we have any -a ending neuter words.
But "this", in the "this is" is always "to".
How would you say "this bed..."?
"Ta lodówka jest moich rodziców"? Also, does
"To jest lodówka moich rodziców," work?
both sentences work, withe very slight difference (this is fridge vs this fridge is)
with "to łóżko", if there is no verb I'd assume to=this is, if there is a verb after to łózko it clearly means this bed
They're still telling me I'm "almost correct" when I use the correct apostrophe in "my parents' fridge". It looks as if they've corrected some parts, but not the others.
Note that when I wrote << parents' >> (i.e. with the possessive apostrophe) this was marked as a typo. I don't think it is. This observation has already been made by a lot of people above I see.
As it has also been discussed, this is some kind of a really weird bug. Because we haven't put "my parents fridge" among the correct answers. The answers in the Incubator all have the apostrophe where needed. And there is a huge list of reports complaining about what you just wrote - you write a correct answer, which is (obviously) considered correct on our side, but somehow the programme shows you that you made a typo. I have no clue why and there's not much I can do - I think I will write a ticket to Duolingo, but as this is a rather minor issue (it's annoying, but it accepts the answer), I wouldn't expect them to act soon.
When I checked the answer, telling me I had a spelling error, this was what was written as the correct spelling, "This is my parents refrigerator." The apostrophe was omitted. Here, however, it is correct.
This is a very weird issue which has been discussed a few times. We have it correct in the Incubator, but still the program suggests you the wrong answer. Nothing more we can do about it.
Actually, This refrigerator is my parents' has a different subject, so it shouldn't be accepted. Removed now.
This is not a "normal" sentence, but the way I understand is, is that the subject is "To", the object is "lodówka moich rodziców", and the verb is a hidden "jest".
