With the "sentences" tab not working, it's difficult to find if people are asking questions about the sentences they're seeing in the course. The Duolingo system is great for automated learning, but there is no substitute for being able to ask a question and get an answer from a real person.

If you've posted a question and not received an answer, I'd like to encourage you to post a link to the thread here - or repost the question as a comment below.

Someone will respond.

"That individual was not a victim."

There are also other people pertinent questions in this comment I couldn't answer.

Perhaps you can reply to the follow-up question on common word orders, though -- I haven't spoken to Esperantists much recently so I'm not sure of what's common and what isn't.

Yet another -n ending question...

I thought I could answer myself, but I have to admit I'm confused on this one.

Usually you hit the nail on the head and I have nothing to add.

I didn't see the phrase "I mean" in the course. How would you translate that into Esperanto. I found subkomprenigi in the reta-vortaro, but it seems a bit heavy to me, ĉu vi scias kion mi subkomprenigas?

I've always gone for Ĉu vi scias kion mi volas diri? or perhaps celas diri.

Well, in fact, as often with Esperanto, it looks like French, tu vois ce que je veux dire ? By the way, it's how I found subkomprenigi in reta-vortaro: by looking for vouloir dire.

"Volas diri" is right.

Kion signifas tiu vorto?

Kion vi volas diri per tiu vorto?

BTW, it looks like the sentences tab is working again so it seems like people are getting their questions answered more regularly lately.
