I just got this "Mark all correct translations" exercise:

The Muslim will go to the mosque tomorrow.

  1. Είναι μουσουλμάνος θα πάει στο τέμενος αύριο.
  2. Η μουσουλμάνα θα πάει στην τζαμί αύριο.
  3. Ο μουσουλμάνος θα πάει στο τέμενος αύριο.

The correct one was 3, but this lesson has taught τζαμί before, not τέμενος.

I'm guessing this has to do with the order of alternatives in blue-star sentences... I think τέμενος should be removed from all blue-star sentences, though, not just moved to the end; τζαμί is the only word I've heard for this myself.

You're right. I just checked and τέμενος is a blue star out of nowhere, I just removed it. There should be less of a mess now ^.^
