shouldn't this be ακολουθει?

It should be "ακολουθεί" (see el.wiktionary.org). However, it's possible to come across "ακολουθά" in certain dialects.

Both are correct and in the incubator.

As others have said, I was surprised by the α. This verb is common in Koine Greek such as the New Testament and is ἀκολουθέω. It's interesting that it's sometimes ακολουθά.

I entered "Ακολουθεί την κόρη του." and it was marked as incorrect.


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

Yes; that is indeed incorrect.

In a "type what you hear" exercise, you have to type what you hear -- if the voice says ακολουθά, you have to write ακολουθά (even if you personally might have used the form ακολουθεί or ακολουθάει instead).

It was indeed a listening exercise so that makes sense. Thank you.

why was" he follows his daugter" marked wrong


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

“Daughter” is spelled with “gh”.

he follows his daughter was marked inccorrect?

That is one of the correct translations we have in the database. If your sentence was rejected there must have been an error. In addition to the screenshot as suggested by #mizinamo what you could do is follow the prescribed procedure of making a Report before you post here.

That will make it possible for us to see the full sentence...just a few words are not enough to understand where you have an error.

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: (You'll see these to choose from.)

-The audio does not sound correct.

-The dictionary hints on hover are wrong or missing.

-The Greek sentence is unnatural or has an error.

-The "Correct solution" is unnatural or has an error.

-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.
