Ha-géver ro'é ishá yafá.
I wrote 'pretty' instead of 'beautiful' and they say that it is wrong..
It's right. They should fix.
Is רואֶה pronounced "ro-EH" (last syllable rhymes with feh!) or "ro-EI" (last syllable rhymes with "may")?
i think they "ay" sound you hear is the beginning of woman
It's pronounced "roeh"
If you haven't discovered it already, I really recommend forvo.com for pronunciation help. Most words from the course so far are there, including רואה http://forvo.com/word/%D7%A8%D7%95%D7%90%D7%94
The reason I asked was that Forvo's pronunciation sounded like ro-eh to me, whereas duolingo's sounded like ro-ey to me, though Leighfy7's reply explains what's likely going on.
There are so many words the speaker blends together, and so many sounds that are not verbalized, but exist in the spelling. This is proving to be more difficult than I ever imagined.
Pretty and Beautiful are synonymous, but it keeps telling me I got it wrong when I wright pretty
Its really, really hard to hear the רואה
So the verbs ending with ה have are spelled the same way (except nikud) in present third person singular?
What seems to be the pattern is that if the masculine singular has a ה, for all the others you remove that and then work off of it. So for feminine, yup adding that ה back. Minus niqud.
all singular persons have the same form (ie. one masc. and one fem.).
and all plural persons have the same form (ditto).
קוֹרְאִים לוֹ בְמִקְרֶה רִיצַ׳רְד גִּיר?
Normatively, the word for "woman" is spelled אשה even without vowels. Please fix throughout.
I have the hardest time hearing this pronunciation!
Where does it tell me it is present tence (sees) I put past tence (saw) and it corrected me.
What do you mean where does it say it is present tense? Both רואה and "sees" can only be present tense.
The man saw would be הגבר ראה.
Why was that wrong? I gave the exact same answer as required
That is what i wrote
I put "The guy sees a pretty woman" and it was marked as wrong.
A better translation of "guy" is בחור "bachur".
Its so hard to hear the word woman when i listen its all jumbled together
How do you know when to put "a" or "the" in front of the noun as in הגבר?
ה = the
So, it shouldn't be difficult.
גבר - a man
הגבר - the man
Thank you, that's what thought but the program told me I was wrong.
What exactly did you write and what did the program tell you? Maybe there was another problem.
