Is "Mister Lingo" not correct? Only Mr Lingo?

So we don't put a period at the end of "Mr." in Welsh?

I assume it follows the UK style where Mr/Ms/Mrs don't have a period after them.

Correct. If the abbreviation contains the final letter of a word, you don't use a full stop/period e.g. Mr, Dr but Prof., Rev.

Ah, I see. Thank you for the clear-up!

Wow. Been in the UK ten years and had noticed the lack of full stop after Mr, Dr, etc. Didn't know the rule re: final letter, though. Thanks!

"It gives us Mr. Lingo."

I hear sarcasm.

I translate as Good night Mr Lingo. However i keep being told this is wrong.

Literally typed the exact thing as the answer and it's still marking me as incorrect??

Might be a glitch with the app, punctuation should be ignored by the system but occasionally it marks it wrong. If you have a screen shot of what you typed and the message you had that would be really useful for us to take up with system maintenance.
