Kinda creepy as I'm doing this 38 minutes before march
"it's february now, not march" wasn't accepted
Accepted June 4, 2020
Still not accepted 28.4.16. Reported.
Why isn't it а не марта ?
I wish i knew. I thought Genitive of Negation forces genitive case but i guess I'm too stupid to learn Russian grammar =(
"It is now February, not March," also not accepted, think it should be
Why not "Now it's February, but not March."?
Using "but" rather than "and" would imply that it could be both February and March at the same time.
It really is february right now, does duolingo change this with the months, Or just a coincidence?
Сейчас март, а не февраль. Я злесь - so no, just a coincidence ^_^
wait so do you pronounce the L at the end of февраль?
Yes, L, not the default л sound which is similar to English "w" because the letter л was softened with the soft sign following it.
"It is right now February and not March" - anything wrong with that?
You don't need the word "right" - "now" is sufficient.
"It's February now, not march" is accepted 24.12.2017
Well, you are right. Today is February 28th, 2019 19:04. So, yes, it is still февраль.
It is incorrect English to start this sentence with "Now". Better would be "It is now February, not March"
This way of saying it in English implies that it is now February, no longer March, which is bizarre, as February precedes March.
A better way to say it in English would be "It is currently February, not March".
