So לא is 'no' or strictly can be used as 'not'?

It is no, and not.

It is both no and not. Similar to Spanish where "no" is also both no and not.

in polish "nie" also means both "no" and "not"

So I typed in exactly what it showed me for "you do not'....and got it wrong :(

It's possible your "like" didn't match your "you" in gender. (Hard to know for sure without seeing what you had put, though, but that's a common issue.)

why is the love conjugated as feminine when the pronoun for "you" here is masculine?

At - feminine , Atah - masculine.

It's probably assuming the "you" to be a feminine

It's giving me a multiple choice and all three options are being marked wrong. I can't complete my daily training. Think this needs looking at.

So earlier I did "אתם לא אוהבייו" But now it says "אתם לא אוהבים ייו" And i think they are both right, why? Is this a case of masculine and feminine use?

Well, אתם is plural, so you can only write אוהבים with that. So, it goes like this:

אתה אוהב - masculine singular

את אוהבת - feminine singular

אתם אוהבים - masculine or mixed gender plural

אתן אוהבות - feminine plural

"you not like wine" is how i am reading this translation. how did I get this wrong?

July 1, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/naptyme

Wellll, I think what is going on here is that "you" can be either singular or plural. So far as I know at this point in the course, we have only been taught you (singular). You (plural) is אתן

July 3, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/zivsxx

So would that be used if you're addressing a group of people as "you"?

July 14, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/naptyme

Yes, I believe so. אתן (feminine plural) would be used if the group was entirely female, אתמ (masculine plural) would be used if the group was entirely male or if the group was mixed males and females (if I remember my first year Hebrew correctly!)

For the multiple choice both plurals are used and must be chosen to answer correctly. Don't forget to use mem sofit at the end of a word. אתם לא אוהבים יין., אתן לא אוהבות יין.

You have to give the translation in correct English. "You not like wine" is a word-for-word translation, but doesn't make much sense in English. To be a complete sentence you need to put either, "You do not like wine" or "You don't like wine."

how is this wrong?אינכן אוהב ייו.

May 11, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FWBeck

ייו not יין

May 24, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/ran6996

Also אינכן is a female and plural while אוהב is male and singular. It'd be either אינכן אוהבות יין or אינך אוהב יין
