αυτή είναι στο κάστρο should also be correct as there is no audible difference between αυτή and αυτοί
Can this be also "αυτή είναι στο κάστρο"? Or how can we differentiate between αυτοί ή αυτή;
"Αυτή" is "she" singular a female. "Αυτοί" is plural male or female. If it's written you see it.
But if you hear it in a normal conversation you'll understand by the context.
But if you had this in a listening exercise there is no way to know. So, please tell us if you had it on a listening and we'll report it for removal as it's confusing. Thank you.
Thanks, yes, it was on a listening exercise. Otherwise, the written parts are quite easy to distinguish. I am simply not very familiar with how things are organized in a course and automatically thought that this was only a listening exercise.
Thank you, I'm suggesting that these "αυτή" or "αυτοί" sentences, and other similar, not be used on the listening. I've reported this for review. Thanks for your cooperation it helps a lot.
Just encountered this one - 8 months on from the original discussion about it. In other words I got it in a listening exercise, wrote "αυτή" and it was marked wrong.
I just had the sentence in a listening exercice. I wrote: αυτή είναι στο κάστρο. It was not accepted
I'm afraid so. It's a common problem with homophones. We can't fix this issue ourselves, so... We hope that it will be fixed, somewhere in the near future. :/ Thank you for your comment though. ^.^
It's still happening in the listening exercise on Strengthen Skills////But I like the new format
Yes, homophones are still an issue, unfortunately. :/ The cases are only a few compared to the existing sentences, but we are trying to figure out how to solve this one (with some Duolingo help, of course. ^.^)
Just keeping you amazing people posted... You are doing a great service ...my Greek has never been better...so long as I keep on using Duolingo!!
This issue still hasn't been solved :( I wrote "Αυτή είναι στο κάστρο" and it was wrong :( In a listening exercise there's no way to know whether it's "she" or "they"...
