I wrote "an egg fried". How silly of me!

Am I the only one taking notes?

February 13, 2015


I thought about it. I have gone back and done my levels 1-4 mulitple times. I think im going to start from beginning with notes. Really loving this app

There's no way you're alone. I'm the kind of guy that takes notes on everything, even if it's deemed "unnecessary". I like to that extra precautionary step.

Not only do I utilize notes with Duo - I make flashcards for every new word, grammar rule, conjugation, etc. using ANKI. The spaced repetition it uses helps me a lot with committing these things to long-term memory.

The duolingo team made an app about flashcards, check it out!!!

In the top bar, after 'duolingo' and 'Home' is a menu for 'Words'. It is a great place to go and revise all the Italian words you have learnt so far. They even give the meaning, part of speech, gender and sound, and it can be sorted according to various qualities, such as how long it is since you have revised it.
Thank you Duo!

It would handy if the App version of Duolingo had all those bells and whistles that the PC version does (hint, hint).

February 8, 2019


I have a notebook that I write my Italian in. It is labeled "Italian"

June 5, 2017


I'm using Quizlet for extra word drill

June 15, 2017

November 28, 2017

August 11, 2016

August 3, 2017


Once I wrote for "Bounasera, sono io" I am having a good night! That was funny!

March 15, 2014


Once I said mi chiamo domani "My name is tomorrow!"

October 18, 2016


lol I thought it was an egg chip but chip would be PATATA fritto literal translation potato fried.

June 25, 2017


I heard "un uomo fritto" .-.

February 2, 2014


Me as well. Perhaps he was just electrocuted? :)

February 11, 2014


Me too! And even if it seems so creepy, i wrote it that way. Honestly, it wouldn't have been the first creepy sentence of Duolingo xD

August 15, 2014


A fried man...yep i agree

March 21, 2016


If the Italian adjectives match their noun in gender then what is the form of "fritto" if it's used to describe a feminine noun? I don't quite get this.

September 26, 2014


fritta.. un uovo fritto, una pizza fritta.

November 8, 2014


Uovo is masculine

February 23, 2015


How do you know whether an object is feminine or masculine? It's very confusing...

April 10, 2015


Generally it's feminine when the noun ends in "a", masculine if it ends in "o". There are a lot of exceptions though

April 11, 2015


I think i would be clever to have a "translate this to english" and it was just the voice.

January 20, 2015


me too

March 2, 2015


they have that on mobile

September 1, 2016


Why is it " un " and not " un' "

September 25, 2014


un' is for a feminine word beginning with a vowel. uovo is masculine.

March 29, 2015


Whoops! I wrote "a fired egg"! xD

March 10, 2016


Wait, so "fritto" means both fried and deep fried ?

February 8, 2016


I can speak italien but I repit it with this app but it is werry complicated to translate italien to English because my mother tongue is german

September 6, 2016


is the literal translation of this "an egg fried" ?

February 24, 2014


Yes, but usually in Italian (like most other Romance languages) the adjective is put after the noun. There are some adjectives, though, that come before the noun (much like the French BANGS rule or BAGS [Beauty, Age, (Number), Goodness, Size] , I assume).

July 21, 2014


Eggs can be baked as well as fried. What's the difference?

July 8, 2015


When your in writing Italian is there a way they should be placed. Like in latin when your writing you need to have nouns , verds , subjects in a specific place in the sentence. Does italian have that ???

Actually, precisely in Latin there is no fixed word order: Catullus off the top of my head, "tu solebas meas esse aliquid putare nugas" (you used my to be something to consider jests = you used to consider my jests to be something). There is no confusion because of the declension, something Italian lacks.

Italian is typically SVO (subject-verb-object, e.g. "io mangio un uovo" - "I eat an egg"), but it becomes SOV (subject-object-verb, e.g. "io lo mangio" - "I eat it") when clitics are involved; other word orders, like OVS (e.g. "lo mangio io" - "I eat it", but more idiomatically "it's me who's going to eat it"), VSO (e.g. "mangio io l'uovo" - "I eat the egg", "it's me who's going to eat the egg") or even OVSO and OOVS (in these cases the object is typically repeated with a clitic to avoid confusion, e.g. "lo mangio io l'uovo" or "l'uovo lo mangio io", same meaning as in the previous example) are common in speech for emphasis, and if you introduce indirect objects the number of possible combinations escalates. Other word orders can be found in poetry or dialects.

why it dont use "di" "con" or "a" in the middle?

"Fritto" is an adjective, so it follows the noun directly.

November 15, 2015


Are adjectives always after nouns? Or is it right if i say 'fritto uovo'?

December 16, 2015


I believe it depends, but most of the time they are after nouns.

February 29, 2016


Do we always use adjective after noun?

July 19, 2017


why is it "a fried egg" when fritto comes after uovo. I guess I'm wondering why it isn't an egg fried.

January 13, 2018


Should it be AN fried egg?

May 13, 2019


Only if "an" is next to "egg". It is a sound thing. An egg vs. a fried egg.
