"The pasta is short."
When talking about height (even for objects) we use "נמוך/גבוה"
When talking about length we use "קצר/ארוך"
I expected it to be הפסטה הקצרה as I was used to this repetition of the 'ה' in such case like in: האישה היפה ,הכף הגדולה ,הילד הקטן or החרב הקצרה Can someone explain why not in this case please? Thanks.
(Note: I'm learning too, but I'm ahead of you). The reason is because both words have the hey ה attached. So it's "the short pasta." If it was only attached to pasta, then it's "the pasta is short." This is in the tips and notes. Do you need them?
THE SHORT PASTA: הפסטה הקצרה
THE PASTA IS SHORT: הפסטה קצרה
How would you apply that when there is an action next ? It feels like you would need to use "is" twice in this case:
With הילד הקתן אוכל כריך alternatively הילד קתן אוכל כריך
Maybe הילד הקתן אוכל כריך is just incorrect ?

The whole course tips and notes are here (and the site has one for each Duolingo language), organized by skill: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Hebrew
You can also get them on the duolingo.com site [make sure your browser is in desktop view mode so you can see the other duolingo features like discussions & timed practice (the language clubs are only on the app though)]. From discussions you can search for all the discussions in this course (like this one you're reading, as well as see general duolingo discussions). If you can't see discussions on the main screen once logged into duolingo you're not in desktop view.
