not 'ed'? I thought we use ed when the next letter is a vowel
It's not mandatory, but you could use it.
Yes, the problem is that it gets marked wrong. The option is for "ed" except on this question. Problem.
agree with you; DuoLingo should fix this :-)
Yes but the problem is that there is no explanation given in what situatio the exception is applied.
The "ed" version is not yet accepted, as of today (24.05.2020).
My understanding is that 'ed' would be correct, however we're being asked to write what we hear, and the speaker does not say 'ed'
great kids song "volevo un gatto nero"
When speaking, how does one know the difference between e (is, with the comma) and e (and)? They sound the same when reading aloud.
They don't: e is pronounced as é (/e/) as in day (/deɪ/), while è is pronounced /ɛ/ as in pet (/pɛt/). Or it is in standard Italian and English (both BE and AE), dialects may vary.
Does Italian not have the same comma rules as English? Or why is there no comma between nero and e?
I thought you were never supposed to place a comma before and/e. Thats the dutch rule.. maybe in Italian its the same?
s the dutch rule.. maybe in Italian it
Pretty sure she says e cane in the fast one and il cane only in the slow version
Yeah, i heard the same..must be some junction that e il becomes e'l. Must check but too lazy
