In spoken Greek, how would you differentiate between αυτή είναι (she is) and αυτοί είναι (they are)? They are pronounced exactly the same and have the same verb conjugation, no?
You can't differentiate between them when they stand alone in oral speech. It all depends on the context. :-)
Which makes this a pretty evil sentence to have on listening comprehension… (Just missed it by typing αυτοί είναι.)
Reported this and hopefully it'll be fixed because αυτοί είναι should also be an acceptable answer given there is no context.
Yes, the homophones issue has still to be fixed. Unfortunately, it's not something we can fix ourselves, so it might take some time ^.^
Its accepted when I wrote "she has" as an answer and duolingo gave me "she is" as an another correct answer. What I'm thinking that my answer should be wrong. Shouldn't it?
I think this one has been corrected. "She has" is nowhere to be found in the incubator. If you bumo into this one again, let us know! ^.^
How much time do you need for goodness sake! These errors are very damaging to the credibility of duolingo.
Yes, we are aware. Issues like this one take some time to get fixed:/
It has been a year since the issue that this sounds exactly like 'αυτοί είναι' was raised regarding oral questions, and it has still not been addressed. Just a reminder. Needs fixing. Big bug.
