Just a remark : the last word should be said "touss" and not "tou" (the final 's' should be pronounced).
and why? because it is a pronoun here.
a trick to remember: pronoun = pronounced
Dl tells us : «write what you hear». well. we hear «tout», then we have to write «tout» even if we know that the audio would have had to be «tous».
Isn't it a paradoxal situation? we are penalysed If we do what we had been said to do.!!
You know, the problem with having French on Duolingo is that as a Duolingo employee you must be committed to truly exploring all the possible correct answers. I am a native French speaker. I cannot count how many times I have missed a question that is actually correct. I've also encountered many "true" answers that are incorrect, or multiple correct answers that are not included in the correct answer. The French here needs serious revision.
Then report the answers that you think should be accepted! You can help Duolingo be better in the future by doing so.
Did you mean "definitely"? Because I've never seen "définitivement" used that way in French before. It's only used to mean "forever" as far as I know, not "for sure". Could be that people in Quebec use it that way though, they do use a lot of expressions similar to English ones.
Oh, thanks for your info!
I said that as to mean 'definitely,' as that is what Duo told me it was! lol.
Could you tell me what word you use for 'definitely?'
I would probably use "absolument" and either "clairement" (adverb) or "c'est clair" (on its own). I don't think there is just one translation, probably depends on the person.
Will "tous" typically refer to "everyone", rather than "everything"? Or should "everything" be accepted here?
"Tous" means "everyone". "Tout" means "everything". One is singular and the other is plural. However, the pronounciation of "tous" includes the S, and it wasn't included here. It should have been. If you heard it pronounced and wrote down "tout", you were right.
Yes, but in that form, it's not used on its own. You would use it in sentences such as "tous les gens" or "tous ceux qui utilisent Duolingo" or that kind of thing. The "tous" that has its S unpronounced is not used on its own, so it cannot be it, it wouldn't be grammatically correct.
So based on the pronunciation they give, they only grammatically correct spelling would be "tout".
Go to this link IMMEDIATELY, read the lesson and then take the 20 question test. A FABULOUS way to nail the difference between tout, tous, toute and toutes....Thank You!!!
shouldn't it be touSSSSSSSSS (i mean pronouncing the S) because it is a pronoun and not an adjetive
why "tout" not accepted? for all , has to be "tous" or "toutes"? when "tout" can be used?
if you follow the pronunciation there it SHOULD be tout. tous should be pronounced TOUSSS.
"Tout" would have another meaning. It would mean "everything" and not "everyone" here.
It is indeed "Tout le monde" because "monde" is uncountable. However you would say " Tous les gens", "Tous les individus", "Tous les participants". That's the way it goes indeed :)
If you mean tous, the s should then be pronounced here. Could you please correct the pronunciation?!
tout the t is silent.
I also heard "tout" and not "touS" and it was marked wrong. As noted by others previously, I believe this should be corrected.
pour tout le son est bon, mais pour tous on doit entendre le 's' j'entends : c'est la même chose pour tout
I was taught that the word "tous" which refers to people has the "s" pronounced at the end to distinguish it from the pronoun "tout"
