'One' refers to a group consisting entirely of women or feminine/neutral nouns. Otherwise (i.e. if there is at least one man/masculine noun in the group) you need to use 'oni.
Am I correct to say that these days some people in Poland have started using the phrase 'One i oni' instead of 'oni' to refer to mixed gender groups? I was told this by a couple of my Polish mates.
That's only if you really want to overkill the stress on the fact that there are both women and men (or boys and girls, etc.) in the group. I'd not use it for mixed group myself, only when there are 2 groups, one of consisting men, and one consisting of women. Otheriwse it would sound odd.
On = he. Ona = she. One = they (if the noun if female) Oni = they (if one or more is masculine)
those work for people.
"it" may be on, ona, ono- depending on the grammatical gender of the noun
All plural nouns that do not describe people are also "one"
To know the difference between "They" and "They" at least you could specify the genre.
Why does this appear as the last phrase on (one of) the last section(s) of the course?
I have similar in my language (one/oni) and I understand that this can be confusing esspecially for someone whose native language is English. I think that it would be better if the author of the questiond would wrote to translate to Polish "They (females)" or "They (men or mixed group)". This way when it says translate you can put both and it will be correct answer and one will still be confused.
Sounds like a bug. It's either "one" (only women) or "oni" (only men or a mixed group).
Well, what was the exercise? If it was "check all the correct answers", you put two answers. If it's just "Translate", you put one answer.
What was the exercise? If it was just "translate", then you have to choose one answer, if it was "check all the correct answers" then you should check them both and it should work...
You mean that you insert both answers at the same time? That's like writing "they, they"...
I typed in both correct answers oni, one and got incorrect! Not sure why. No previous penalty for not using upper case?? !
Did you type both answers at the same type? You can't translate "they" to "oni, one". That's "they, they". You should choose one.
Croatian(Serbian, Bosnian, Montenegtin) language also has this differentiation of they males (or mixed) and they females. And Semitic languages as well.
You answered "Oni, One"? So you answered "They, They", you have to choose one :)
