Why can't it also be correct that children are eating strawberry ice cream?

strawberry ice-cream is lody truskawkowe. but then there is this middle ground- ice cream with pieces of strawberries inside- those are lody z truskawkami, just like ice cream with strawberries on them.

The female voice pronounces jedzą as "jędzą," but not in the slow version.

Came here to say the same, sounds like the wrong stress in truskawkami too (trus'kawkami rather than truskaw'kami)

Sounds like truskawkámi on my device.

It sounds fine on the male voice above, was just the female one sounded off. I'll check again next time I do the lesson.

I guess I can disable the audio exercises on the basis of the female voice saying "jędzą" (a form of "jędza", a word for a very unpleasant, usually old woman, like a hag or a witch).

The stress... that's a secondary issue, but yes, it's off as well.

So, if I get this correctly, the sentence does not refer to the ice cream's flavour but an addition to the ice cream, which is separate strawberries? Just reassuring to not confuse the function of the word “z”.

Correct, strawberry-flavoured ice cream would be 'lody truskawkowe'

Thanks a lot, I knew it!

why can't is be strawberries and ice-cream?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jellei

Different word (with/and), and different word order...

I thiught I'd try this version but apparently the wording must be precise, I guess it can be vanilla with. :-)
