Russian spelling errors?

I always make sure I spell everything right, but when learning Russian it doesn't accept the right word? There's no accents or anything to it, and doesn't tell me what it thinks is wrong. I've reported it almost five times now. Help??

Can you be more specific?

I'll spell something right, but DL doesn't accept it as right, and doesn't give me a reason why.

Well, I guess I should have said, "can you cite some examples?" I knew what you were saying.

The examples you gave to moai9 do just fine. What you wrote looks right to me too. Be sure that you are not mixing Cyrillic and the Latin alphabet, the "a" and the "o" could be from either. But that doesn't seem likely.

It appears to be a minor bug. As your answers were counted as correct, and you've already reported this several times, just ignore it. Duo probably has not gotten to working on it yet.

Right now it's also just counting any word that has a ь in it wrong unless you use the Russian cyrillic. Not just saying it's a typo. I reported that here yesterday: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16290801

I've been reporting the typo errors since I started this course. But there's really no way to ignore the wrong answer problem since that sets you back and will keep you doing the same single lesson for hours.
