Why "Το κορίτσι δεν τρώγει αυτό αυτή κρεμμύδι." is wrong?

Isn't that "this" twice in a row?

Yes. These is no much thing as "αυτή αυτό". :P When The pronoun αυτός/αυτή/αυτό is used as this, it's always accompanied by an article that matches the gender and number, not another pronoun. :P

I wrote as subject of my sentence κορίτσι but it was wrong, it says that the right word was κοπέλα. What's the difference?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dimitra956826

That's because you used the wrong article :P

Keep in mind that κορίτσι as a noun is neuter in gender, so το would be the correct article, and not η. If you use the wrong article, Duolingo marks your noun as incorrect and replaces it with an alternative that matches the article you used, if there is one (in this case, η κοπέλα.) ^.^

It's not and it's one of the accepted answers. If it was not accepted, it is a bug. ;)

Why can't you say "το κορίτσι δεν τρώει το κρεμμύδι αυτό"?

I was wondering why is 'δεν' and not 'δε'. How do you know whento pit the n at the end of it
