I agree with Łukasz. It makes sense to force to write them in polish but it's not useful to force to write them in english
We deliberately chose not to accept numbers because we want to teach the correct declension :)
I think so too, however in many question through this course I have noticed that numbers are not accepted, so perhaps it is intentional.
What part of speech is warty? What is the dictionary form of it? I'm having trouble finding much information on it. I have found info on the adjective "wart", but no forms of it are "warty".
"Wart" and "warty" are two equivalent masculine forms of adjective, of which "warty" is older and often used in proverbs or set phrases. Presently, in spoken language "wart" and "warty" can be used interchangeably, in writing "wart" is preferred form, listed by most of dictionaries. Feminine form is "warta" ("Warta" is name of one of Polish rivers), neuter form is "warte".
There is also a defective verb "warto" meaning "to be worth".
"Warty" is wrong. There are three such adjectives in polish wart - worth rad - glad, happy kontent - content, happy.
Whether it's just a worse option or a simply wrong one, there's nothing we can do about it apart from removing any sentence teaching this adjective. The course creators only put "warty" as a form in the Incubator. It's either this or nothing :( So I think that it's better to leave this here.
After some reading, it seems that "warty" should be considered wrong... you know a language is difficult when even people creating a language course make some mistakes.
However, it is impossible to fix this mistake in the current version of the tree. We could only delete all the sentences with this word - because only the masculine form is put in Incubator, we couldn't even create sentences with feminine "warta". I guess leaving "warty" ("wart" is obviously accepted) is lesser evil, many (most?) natives wouldn't even notice the mistake. Will be fixed in Tree 2.0, that's for sure.
Out of curiosity, when is 2.0 likely to be released? I ask as I am approaching the end of 1.0 and it would be nice to have something move on to.
I'm currently doing, in parallel, Pl -> En; I'm pleased to report that I have achieved 30% fluency in English :-) .
We're still talking months, it's built virtually from scratch. There should be a progress update relatively soon. It's better not to wait for it and just finish both trees, keep them gold and find some other ways to learn, if needed ;)
Years even it seems considering how long this illusive new tree has been "almost ready now".
I understand that it is quite an undertaking and I wouldn't want anyone to think I'm trying to carry out any kind of equine gift dentistry here (though I will admit to being a bit expectant).
Sorry, where did anyone write that it's "almost ready now"? It's not, it's pretty far from being ready.
Jellei, I don't know. I had the impression that someone suggested that it wasn't so far away some time last year, but obviously I cannot quote the exact assertion at the root of this misapprehension.
I'd like to try to answer this one: "Telewizor" is here being used as an accusative to the verb "mieć", so, per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_grammar which says, slightly abbreviated "After the numerals dwa, trzy, cztery (2, 3, 4) [...] the noun is plural and takes the same case as the numeral following "dwa", so the noun "tysiąc" needs to be in accusative plural and thus , per https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/tysi%C4%85c#Polish it needs to be "tysiące". Forms of "tysiąc" themselves take genitive, however, hence "dolarów".
Have I got that about right?
I see this topic has already been touched upon, but nothing seems to have changed. No, it doesn't make any sense to force people to write "2 thousand", as if they were learning English instead of Polish. Especially considering that it is inconsistent with the rest of the exercises, where numerals in ENGLISH sentences are normally allowed as numbers.
Of course it doesn't. Numbers in English normally are accepted automatically, but I guess not all of them. Added manually, should work now.
