Shouldn't it be "chat", pronounced without the "t"?

Masculine "un chat" is pronounced SHA Feminine "une chatte" is pronounced SHATT

Are comma splices allowed in french, or are we just ignoring that rule?

This sentence was built for you to see the difference between singular and plural. Therefore, to split the two parts, Duo has used a comma. I could have been a semi-column or a full stop, or any other sign meant to just make a break between the two parts.

Thank you.

I can really hear the difference on Google Translate.

I wonder if the Duo robot is so clear.

I could not tell the differences between "chiens sont noirs" and "chiennes sont noires". I hope my ear improves!

maybe try "chien, chienne" on Google/Translate to better hear the difference

is it just me, or is everything always black?

because "noir, noire, noirs, noires" is an adjective that is easy to use for grammar purposes. As you can see, all gender and number forms are different.

that is not the case for many other color adjectives.
