It never appeared for me in the Vietnamese from English course, though I did the lesson three times. I tried looking the word up with the search feature and it only seemed to appear in discussions for the English from Vietnamese course where it might have something to do with call or being called? As in " "The ducks" còn gọi là "a ducks" đúng không?" Was this word supposed to be in this lesson? What is the sentence that it is supposed to be in?

Hello, there are two separate "gọi", one in Basics 2 and one in Verb 3.

In Basics 2, "gọi" means "to order" (have to use with ordering food/drink, not other commercial products).

In Verbs 3, "gọi" means "to call" (as in "to call somebody by phone", "how do you call this animal?").

Awesome! A multipurpose word can be useful. I am just happy to have any information. I don't know how I was able to do the Basic 2 lesson so many times and still not get that word in a sentence, so I appreciate the help!

It's my fault not to include it in Tips & notes or in the forum but we really struggle to provide as much information as possible.

You are all doing a great job. There is so much to cover. This page is in the forum now, so if someone looks up the word in the forum, hopefully, someone else will find this page. It is a mystery to me that the sentence does not appear when you look the word up. I am sure all the sentences will eventually be available in the forum.

I hope so. Each word's meaning can be very broad while Duolingo system is still limited.

So what was the complete translation of that? Oddly when I try to do a search for this sentence, it does not seem to be in the searchable database yet.

I finally found something: http://www.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~duc/TD/td/index.php?bpos=171738&db=ve So it means "to call; to hail" as with a taxi or "to name; to call" as in for a word or name.

I still hope someone from the course will find out about the sentence it was supposed to be introduced in.
