My heart swells with longing when I think back to my tender youth in the old country, when my grandfather, eyes wizened and face darkened by age, would tenderly place me on his lap and whisper "nee and taf bullhorn"

I laughed really hard, for what it's worth.

i question this sentence to be ever used in Greek

I do not think that they put this one for practical use, I guess it's here so you can hear that the letter combo ντ sounds like a d

Exactly, and this word gets more hits than any other. I bet it'll be easy to remember because it's so off the wall.

Last time I got this I typed ν και τ and it wanted νι και ταυ. This time I typed νι και ταυ and it marked me wrong and wants ν και τ. :(

Did you get this? ν και τ ντουντούκα


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stephenbal4

This time around, yeah. I could have sworn I got νι και ταυ ντουντούκα the time before. I could be wrong.

Well this is the Greek and it wants the Eng. so you could type:

In English any combination of these: n/ni/niu/nee.-- [t/ti/tau/taf] megaphone/bullhorn

That is 22 combinations but they are in English. Please let me know if it works.
