The German "R" is pronounced in a different way. The tongue is rolled from the back of the throat. The sound produced is similar to a gargle, and can be called an uvular "R".
For a non-German speaker, it might be very hard to identify that sound, or even pronounce it, which is probably why it sounded like "Jede".
Try listening to other German words with "R", like "Frühstück", "Reis", "kurz" etc. for a clearer picture.
I don't think it's wrong. Report it if you can so they can add it as an alternative solution.
so 'Everyone heard it' is wrong. I thought verbs in German didn't have a tense attached to them (e.g. trinken, essen, etc.), no?
Trinken and essen are both present tense. "They are drinking" and "They are eating". "Everyone heard it" would be translated with past tense, "gehört".
Um... I thought all nouns were capatalized in German. So why is it "Jeder hört es"?
Any help me on how to pronouce Hört,sounds like who-t...i figured how to pronouce Apfel and Äpfel
Duo hört es nicht. Three times i said it exactly. Three times denied. Waaaaa
I took it as partitive and put Each person hears it. Would this require jedermann in German?
German jeder, like English "everyone", acts singular (hence the singular verb: jeder hört, everyone hears).
So you don't have a plural ending on that word, either.
Instead, you have jeder with masculine -er for "everyone" or, more specifically, "everyone male". jede could be used to mean "everyone female" or "every woman", if you specifically want to point out that each of the people the word applies to is female.
But in my experience, the generic masculine jeder is usually used.
I know jeder for masculine, jede for feminine and jedes for neuter but in this sentence there is no noun after it so why we use jeder not Jede or jedes
For better or worse, German has traditionally used the masculine as the "default" gender when speaking about people whose gender is unknown or irrelevant.
Or you could consider it as short for jeder Mensch "every human".
Jede hört es would also be grammatically correct but would only be appropriate if the group consisted only of women.
And Jedes hört es is unlikely in reference to humans, and objects usually don't "hear" things.
I thought it is Ever heard of this.
So if you would want to translate the above given sentence in german what would the sentence be.
Why would Duolingo make me "type what I hear" if they haven't introduced me to the word hört yet??
Why do we use hört as opposed to hören, when jeder is referencing a group (of people)?
jeder is referencing a group (of people)?
jeder is like "everyone" or "each person" -- it looks at each person in turn, and every person looked at is just one person.
Like how we say "everyone hears it" in English with singular "hears" and not "everyone hear it".
If you wanted to reference the group as a whole, you would use alle, which is plural and takes a plural verb: alle hören es "everyone hears it / all hear it".
