this wolf just gets meaner and meaner....

When should I use μια and μία?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/troll1995

They are interchangeable, but μία is more emphatic like "one".

surprisingly, it's apparently true that wolves have been know to hunt foxes - I don't know if they eat them or just want to get rid of the competition......

Is there a connection between αλεπού and the city Aleppo?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/troll1995

In Greek Aleppo is Χαλέπι, so I don't think so. :)

    Don't think so. Is related to the genus name Alopex, and maybe also to the Latin vulpes and thus the pokemon Vulpix. It might even be related to the word λύκος, although no-one has been able to prove that.

    the wolf eats the fox is wrong??

    Indeed it is.

    μία αλεπού is a fox, not the fox.

    Why is "The wolf eats a fox" not correct?

    That is also correct and an accepted translation. Why it was not accepted we cannot say since we can't see your sentence nor what the reply from the program that grades the sentences said.

    We moderators cannot see your sentence therefore before you make a comment you should have made a REPORT. The REPORTS help Duolingo understand what learners have problems with and also where there are issues in the program that need to be fixed. Then post on the comment page.

    Here's how to REPORT.

    Go to the bottom of the exercise page where you'll see "REPORT" Click on that:

    Then choose what you want to REPORT:

    -My answer should be accepted. This is the one you should click on if your translation was not accepted.

    After choosing the REPORT you want to make you should post on the comment page.
