Why is זה שלי לא שלךְ considered a typo?


I'm a native speaker. That should be accepted too.


I don't see an answer to Ninon here. I got the same typo and am wondering the same thing.


Two years later, This answer is still not accepted.


This is ridiculous especially since a similar question in the same lesson is marked incorrect when using the masculine in place of the gender neutral! Inconsistent.


Hadn't even learned ״שלכן״ yet but somehow I got this as a multiple choice..


When the lesson starts, there are "Tips & Notes". It's all there. You can also access it while you're doing your lesson (just look to the upper left corner of the green frame and you'll notice a "Tips & Notes").


Have a Lingot!

I never realized that there was reading material. I thought it was learn by testing.


You don't see the tips and notes in the app or on mobile view on your browser, you have to get them via desktop view on a browser, or get them from the wiki, like http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Hebrew_Skill:Possessives_1


I see you're not new to Duolingo, that happens


Yes but it's an easy pattern to guess if you've made it this far. This is one of the few problems Duolingo has.


Cant this also be zot sheli lo shelka? Or am i just trippin


"Yours" could be translated שלך (shelkha), but that would be the singular rather than the plural form of "yours". In English, we don't have the distinction between plural "yours" and singular "yours" so the sentence could be translated either way depending upon the intended meaning. Also, I believe zot would be used if "this" was talking about a feminine noun.


Right, but they dont specifically tell you what it is, feminine or masculine, so both should be accepted, i think.


I know, i did that too. Technically, it's right, but i think the masculine version of "zeh" is used more in this sense.


ze shelí! lo shelchá!


If I hadn't started Memrise Duolingo Hebrew vocab course first I would have thought I was an idiot, I didn't realise the app wasn't fully set-up until I got through 8 skills. That's only due to already knowing the alef bet & Memrise. I can't imagine how many quit from this huge issue.


I don't see Hebrew listed as an available language in Memrise?


You can no longer add user made courses from the app. You must use the website.


How would I know that yours here is plural and not singular?


There is nothing here that indicates that it is plural.

in fact "Zeh" refers to a sing. and "shelcha" is talking to a single person, not plural.


שלכם and שלכן mean yours in plural


Since they don't give us male or female hints, it should not be counted as wrong.


Well, "yours" is the same for both masculine and feminine, so you couldn't have made a mistake if you wrote שלך. You must have made another mistake that you didn't notice.

Unless you wrote זאת instead of זה. That is a mistake, because masculine זה is the default demonstrative pronoun.
