Why two accents on "δωμάτιό" and if only one accent, still accepted?

December 14, 2016


Normally, there should be two accents (Check out the "Double Accent Rule" in the Tips and Notes here: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/el/Possessives ). But as you might notice, several words that need two accents have only one, due to some mistakes made on the original sentences.

Now that the tree is locked for Beta, we cannot edit the main sentences, and we cannot change the best translations either, so δωμάτιο, with one accent, is still there and accepted for now. But it's on our to-fix list as soon as we get out of Beta. ^.^

Hi, Nice Dimitra!! And could you tell us what "means" to be in Beta, and so on?... I mean, what is the difference of Duo "in Beta", and after being in Beta...

When a course is in Beta, we can't edit the main sentences, because the tree is locked in the incubator. So there's really not much to change. Also, the course isn't yet available on mobile. When we are out of Beta, we will be able to make some changes, and the course will be released on mobile. ^.^

Please make the changes as mentioned above now :). I assume you guys managed to get out of beta since I'm learning greek through mobile now.

"Beta" is a term used in software development. "Alpha" is the original version tested in-house. The beta version is released to a large group of people to make sure it is working properly before the final version is released to the general public. These terms apply to new software and upgrades. I think the original version of Greek in Duolingo is locked because the upgraded version is now in the Beta testing phase and they don't want to keep making changes to the language tree until the new version is launched as this would complicate the testing process.

Why is it marked wrong when I type υπνοδωμάτιο instead of just δωμάτιο? In American English it seems like "room" is completely synonymous with "bedroom" in this sentence - where else would he be sleeping? Does this equivalence not exist in Greek?
