My dog is big = הכלב שלי גדול My dog is growing = הכל שלי גדל
The first is an adjective (pronounced Gadol), and the second is a verb (Gadel).
I wrote "I am pleased" instead of "I am happy" and it was marked wrong. Shouldn't that also be considered correct?
It's probably a bug that you should report. They added nikud to this sentence because the word גדל can also be used in the past tense (גָּדַל), so it clarifies the pronunciation (especially for those without audio).
So when describing an action of an animal the action is not gendered?
When I originally wrote "I'm happy! My dog's growing up." I was marked as incorrect and given the above answer as correct. Shouldn't they both be correct?
On the Android app, why has Duolingo stopped informing you when a word has been misspelled?
