I was marked off for writing "בקבוק ישן". Is the issue that I left off vowels?
I DID THAT TOO, MAYBE I'LL JUST COPY IT. . .
Did you guys report the error? I don't want to duplicate.
No need to report. It's a Duolingo bug. We're trying to get it sorted.
It's still a problem.
Correct. Duolingo staff is still working on it.
I ran into the same thing. Reported then came here to realize it's already a known issue.
I guess it's tough to adapt a Latin alphabet based program to Semetic scripts... Now if I learn how to say that sentence in Hebrew you will know this course is working.
I read on https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ (a site that I love) that this Yashan-Old is never used for describing people, only things.
For people we say זקן not ישן
That is correct.
Is ישן pronounced as yeshan o yashan? The vav has a nikkud that indicates an A sound.
Edit: also Forvo.com says as yAshan.
it's Yahshan, not Yeshan
there is no vav in that sentence
I typed in correctly בקבוק ישן but it's saying that it's incorrect.
Why do the rest of the words not have diacritics?
One gets the vowels via AltGr.
You type (on an English keyboard):
[H] [AltGr-E] [A] [AltGr-W] [AltGr-E] [I]
to get "יָשָׁן".
I don't know whether the vowels are essential here, but learning to type them at least sometime might be worth the effort.
I think 'yeşlı' in Turkish has the same meaning.
For me it's already 3rd time. And now I just copy/pasting from here:
Thanks! I had problems finding the right dotted version of ישן .
To move on you can tap "cant hear now" option.
Fix this pleeeeeeeeeeeeeez
glad I'm not the only one,
Why do they expect us to know words that we haven't learned before?
I cannot finish this level because of this bug. I keep being asked to type in the same thing over and over again. It's infuriating.
what to do?
I typed the word correctly. It marked it as incorrect.
ישן is wrong?
Its still there!! I cant move on ישן
Typed in correctly but being marked as wrong
