It's more of a familiar usage when talking about one's own wife in my understanding, though more akin to 'my woman ' than wife.
Ella es mi mujer'.
'She is my woman (wife). '
Ellas is a group of only women and ellos is a group of only men or both men and women.
What would be the difference between "son" and "somos"? "Son" for third person and "somos" for first person?
If you cut & paste your whole answer, it is better to be able to see if something else is wrong; but, assuming everything else was exactly like the answer, then "women" should have been accepted, & you should report it using the "report" flag on the previous page, where the question and answer were. If other mistakes are made, sometimes the computer "reads" what you put, and compensates for the erroneous word by finishing the sentence in a way that is confusing, because it tries to match the remaining words to what you start the sentence with.
I put in "they are women" and it said it was wrong then corrected it as "they are ladies". But it says above that the translation is they are women???
Ella" is 'she '. This sentence uses "
ellas" though, which is 'they '.
Tú= You (inform.)
/Usted= He/She/You (form.)
Usted= You (plur.)
I'm pretty sure ellas is plural of she... soo, a group of girls... still new to Spanish... yeah...
First thing that comes to my mind is the sound relation between the '
-ey' in they and the '
ell-' in ellos/ellas. Both essentially make the same sound. Maybe that will help?
Try to always do the first option because most of the time the second option wouldn't make sense. Try to put the word into the english translation and see if it makes sense. The first word that pops up when you hover your mouse over the word is "women".
I wrote woman and it was wrong what is the difference between women and woman
"Mujeres" Still says "women" when you click on it for definition. I got confused when i translated it to be, "They are women", and it was marked incorrect, as they correct translation is, "They are dames".
it said the correct answer is "they are dames". Pretty sure nobody uses the term "dame" outside of really old texts.
Ellas son mujeres means they are woman, but here writes incorect?! Here they show Dames?! How come?
I said woman but it said i was wrong, oh well just a mistake. This is a better way for me to learn, i should have come sooner. (Im checking to see if the welsh is correct because im fluent and ill be checking)
I wrote "The girls are women" but it was "They are women" and I was wrong, why????
"The girls" would be Las niñas. Ellas is the feminine form of "They." Oops! I see your post is 10 months old; maybe my comment will help in case anyone else made the same mistake.
No, Duo did not put the word "all"/todos in the sentence. It merely states the gender identity of a group. If there were some very young women and some older girl children where there might be some confusion, and someone needed to identify that all of the women were, for example, old enough to legally drink, perhaps someone might say about the group, "They are all women," but that is a more complex statement with more context, than Duo's simple sentence. Better not to add things that aren't there.
Normally, if you forget to type a letter when answering, it recognizes that you forgot a letter. I was perfect until the last question, this question, and I put "the are women" instead of "they are women" and it marked me wrong. Anyone else ever miss a letter and get the question wrong? It sucks!
Yes, if the Duo/computer sees that what you put matches a real word, it will usually define it as the other word, so you'll miss it. Duo cannot know whether you know the difference between "they" and "the," it only knows "the" does not match its data base of correct answers. Most everyone has probably done that; don't worry about the small things, but push on. When I hurry sometimes, I don't proofread the answer I give, and I should!
"Woman" is the singular form. "They" as the subject pronoun requires the plural verb conjugation (are) and the plural form of the matching noun, "women."
i put woman instead of women and i got it wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!aaaaahhhhh
Somos is used when you use nosotros example "nosotros somos la familia" We are the family Son used when you use they' "Ellas son la familia" they are the family
Yes, but the word was Ellas, the plural form, meaning "they." You would not say, "She are women."
I put "They are all women" and got it wrong.
A group of females (that is classified as female) has to be ALL females for it to be called that, right?
I love Duo but sometimes he's just annoying =.=
There is no need for the extra defining term "all." If it is not in the sentence, don't add it.
It would be easier to see if you made some small error you didn't notice, if you copied and pasted the exact sentence, or rewrote it, here. The more advanced Hispanic speakers are usually very helpful in the forum.
So, I am at meeting consisting of married and single women. I indicate that a group women are not single, so I say "Ellas son mujeres"
If you had a reason to differentiate between two groups of single and married women, I found a few new words. You could say Ellas son esposas (wives), y ellas son solteras (single women); also, a new word to me, Ellas son casadas mujeres. (They are married women, or Ellos son casados hombres, (They are married men.) Single men, my translator said, was soltados hombres. I don't know why the defining word is not AFTER the noun, like hombres soltados, o mujeres soltadas.
Perhaps a native speaker will clarify which word order is correct?
I found another translation that means "handcuffs," which made me laugh! ;-)
Um... I said women, but it said it had to be "dames". Nobody even talks like that
I'm having difficulty with the middle words, i know the difference between ustedes, nosotros nosatras ella and ellos but when do i use son vs somo ect
It claims it is wrong when it is right

Some help on something indirectly related to Spanish please guys. So I'm moving to Barcelona, should I learn Spanish or Catalan? I read somewhere that in the automomous district most people speak Catalan.
what is wrong with dolingo i tapt on it it says wives and i typ it in and ges what... I AM WRONG
im not that good at spelling and i put woman instead of woman but i rken that answer should be correct
DUDE! Be appreciative! It's free to learn! And spelling counts!!!!!!!!
LindsayTra9, at least you would have been understood if you SPOKE it. :-) But when it is written the two words are homonyms, which mean they sound alike but mean different things. Many people say that they are learning a lot about THEIR (another homonym!) native language that they didn't pay much attention to in school! It's a benefit, like WinterSoldier said!
The first option is women, but the next option is wives, so you should probably go with the first, and the second is just after you use the first.
English: They need to say it clearer so people can actually hear them. Espanol: Tienen que decirlo más claro lo que la gente realmente puede oírlos.
I'm wondering is it same "They are women" and The are womens" (with ending 's) since woman here is plural "Ellas"..
Please watch you language. I am glad you are so enthusiastic and passionate of this beautiful language, but please refrain from using vulgar and unnecessary slang.
i hate the period at the end .......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

I am assuming you are serious, and if you are, women is the plural form of woman.
