Non c'è una "legenda"
I was speaking (if you look under my written question) about the number (0), the circumflex accent, the upside-down circumflex accent. the Rispondi, Modifica, Elimina, (perhaps you have Reply, Modify, Remove, the date (ieri)) For the lingots: who can give them and why (I have already spent some of them)....
Yeah I wasn't sure what was meant by "gli interventi" but it makes sense now.
Anyone can give lingots to someone on their post using "Regala lingot". It is for a nice gesture or maybe you want to highlight their post, and it will show up on their post with a lingot icon (picture). The number in brackets (0) is how many upvotes or downvotes that the post has received. Posts with a positive score will tend to show higher on the page and posts with a lower score will tend to go lower or will be hidden ( <0 ). The arrows are used to cast your vote upvote or downvote.
Thanks! So I have put a plus and I'have give a lingot.... With "interventi" (in the sens of intervening in a debate) I meant what is already written as a comment to the discussions. By the way "legenda" is the L. tense called passive periphrastic of the "legere" (read) verb, in its neuter plural form that literally means: "Things that must be read": must, because, in principle, if you don't read it, you don't understand what follows. Think at the symbols in a geographic map, the shortening; the abbreviations in an encyclopaedia, etc.
Ho letto "lengenda" senza problema anche noi ha "legend". Sembra avere lo stesso significato. Però la "passive periphrastic / L. tense" è nuova a me. È un coniugazione che si applica a altre parole?
Un altra cosa, "intervention" in English non vuole dire "conversation" o "discussion", è un azione che interrompe o cambia il corso degli eventi. Ho visto prima che Lei l'ha usato in questo modo (mi sembra).
I put your comment in "fair copy": "MoltE grazie. Ho capito senza problemi il termine "leggenda". Anche noi ABBIAMO "legend", con lo stesso significato. Un'altra (with the apostrophe, because "cosa is f.) cosa: intervention...".Let me reply: There are two "periphrastics" , active and passive. They are not properly "tenses" (note: G. "peri" = around; phrastic = related to the phase: a construction which goes "around a phrase". Compare with "perimeter": to measure ( G. metron) around), they are special constructions. The active shows an action on the point to start, the passive one an action that must be done. Example: "Profecturus sum": I am about to leave; the typical gladiators' greeting to the emperor: "Ave Caesar! Morituri te salutant" : bye Caesar, those who are about to die greeting you. For the passive: "Pugnandum erat": it was necessary to fight. I understand "intervention", which is (again!....) the L "to come (venire) into (inter=in the middle). I used it because I came "into" a discussion that wasn't "mine" with my comment (that could also NOT be welcome). If this was not clear, it would signify that I am far for being able to speak English!
Thanks for the corrections, I feel like I shouldn't make those errors because I knew they were wrong (when you pointed them out). Except for "Ho capito" where I thought read would be interpreted as understood as well.
Regarding "intervention", I wasn't sure if you were misusing it (I only read part of the chat) but I thought I would mention it just in case. Maybe "interruption" might be a better word in this case. Intervention implies fixing something, but then maybe you were. Though intervention is not a word I hear that often, usually it is the context of we are giving him an intervention (because he has a drug problem) or it is in a medical context.
Scusate, sarò poco perspicace ma quei numeri , quelle frecce, quei lingotti che ogni tanto si vedono sotto gli interventi, forse altro ancora.... che significato hanno? Non c'è una introduzione generale a DL? Grazie a chi vorrà illuminarmi!
Lingots are used to buy virtual stuff at the duo store (Negozio lingot) which includes bonus lessons, time practice and a quiz. The store has different stuff depending on whether you are using the mobile app or a web browser. Other numbers you might be talking about is your streak (slancio) which is 58 days. Not sure what arrows (frecce) you are talking about. There is no introduction or manual to the site as it is designed for it to come naturally, there is a wiki out there though: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Getting_started but as far as I know it's only in English. Hope that helps.
Anch'io mi sono perso fra bonus e lingotti. Sono al 10% , come gfaccio a proseguire?
