If 'ele' is feminine and 'ei' is masculine, what do you say if there is a group of people, with men and women ?
I think that is neutral and so would use the masculine ei
I'm confused, why is it ele and not ei?
It is actually either: English does not distinguish between the masculine "they" and the feminine one. Romanian does.
Isnt "ele" just the feminine version of "they"?
Yes, it is.
Good luck eating the newspaper. The word is difficult to remember for me. I imagine the Slovak town of Ziar nad Hronom making it into the international news
X'D they eat the rice and drink the boy
How would one know when to use ele or ei? What in that sentence determines it is ele?
Nothing. We don't know the gender. So both should be accepted.
Why is drink the water "they drink the water"?
Why is it not "beau apala" for "drink the water"?
'water' is apă and 'the water' is apa
Why is it wrong? Can't 'beau' without a pronoun mean 'they drink'?
Yes, when you can infer the pronoun from the context, you can use only the verb. But keep in mind that "beau" is also the person I singural: "Eu beau" (I drink)
ok. this helped me that "beau" is used with "eu" and also "ele/ei". i had forgotten the conjugation.
only when you say 'I drink' - eu beau, you can say BEAU. if you want to say 'they drink' you ll have to say 'ei beau'
Don't quote me on that though, I've just started learning.
yeah thats correct
There is no indication of gender in the sentence
How am I suppose to know which group of people this is? There is no indication of masculine or feminine. When neutral, I use ei, but this answer is ele...... what the heck?
Not sure how i was supposed to instinctely know that a group of women specifically was doing this. I used ei instead of ele...
Why does it keep telling me to "pay attention to the accents" even though i put the accent in every time :|
maybe cause of the 'ş' . you probably used that and you ll have to use 'ș'
Why does it say I hav a typo on my answer when they as neautral is ei because it is masculine, it says my typo is that I didn't write ele but they don't reffer to girls. I am guessing they mean there is an alternative answer?
yeah well theres no way to tell if THEY is ei or ele, thats a thing duolingo has to sort out
It might be correct if you use Ei or Ele because in English "they" Has no gender and nothing in the sentence seems like is fem.
Why did my daughter get this marked wrong? There is no way of knowing whether "they" was being used in a masculine or feminine way, because the English language does not have separate words for both.
I typed "Ei" and got it wrong. How?
why the use of pronoun ele in the second part of the sentence?
