Attorney was rejected as incorrect. In English lawyer and attorney are equivalent. Completely so. We don't have the procuratore vs avvocato distinction. Why is Duolingo insisting on an English distinction that doesn't exist? Why not test the difference in an English to Italian sentence where the context would make the Italian distinction?

I agree that attorney and lawyer should be equally accepted.

Stipend and salary and wages should also be accepted. I have had a stipend for years but always talk about my salary.
