"The conjunction and the interjection."

Translation:Ο σύνδεσμος και το επιφώνημα.

November 11, 2016



This has to be the hardest lesson I've ever done in any tree Duolingo. I had over 40 wrong answers in a row before i finished and that was due to luck. No matter what I did I couldn't remember any of these terms. I'm not sure if it's because they are abstract concepts or because I had to learn them without any context. I'm going to have to repeat this at least 10 more times.

Does anyone have any advice?


I am sorry and we have had others express trouble with this exercise. No, do not repeat this at all. If you ever need to know the parts of speech use a dictionary (to follow). It's better to go on to more fruitful and yes easier lessons. In the new tree this lesson will be much easier. See here for resources: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/22040507


Please don't apologize. The difficulty is due to the app giving me tiles that are too similar.

I also hope I don't sound ungrateful. The hard work that the team put into the course can never be fully repaid.

If you have questions just ask.


The first suggested translation for "The conjunction" is "το συνδυασμό". What does that mean and why isn't it accepted?


It's ο συνδυασμός and it means "the combination".


Sorry, I'm throwing my two draxmas in. I see "Ο συνδυασμό" in the incubator.. Perhaps, you encountered this sentence on the Strengthen skill, listening, test out, multiple choice? Or was it on the usual Tree exercises? It will help if you let us know.


In the philosophy skill I think? At the end of a regular lesson, not in strengthen skill.


I am unable to progress because I don't a Greek language keyboard on mobile. I'm stuck and can't complete the lesson. Can't skip either. Extremely frustrating that this very basic flaw is not fixed.


Duolingo can't install a keyboard on your phone for you ;)

It's not hard to install a Greek keyboard on iOS or Android. If you want to type in Greek you'll need a keyboard.
