@Cynd; Here are some examples of using "Fruits". Here are the fruits laid out on this fruit stall. These are the fruits of our labours. Each of the fruits are sorted before packing. Pineapple is a vegetable even though it is considered as one of the fruits. Tomato is one of the fruits even though it is considered to be a vegetable. I must admit to having quite a broad overview on language. Cordial. JJ.
I know this has been talked about in previous posts, but I still get confused. Fruit is masculine. Le Fruit, the plural is les fruits, there is no pronunciation difference between le and les correct, so a liaison is needed correct? Since there was no liaison in the audio this could have gone either way le fruit or les fruits? I am not nitpicking the audio just trying to get an understanding of identifying the differences in pronunciation of plurals. Thanks in advance!
Hi Chris. Fruit/Fruits, Fish/Fishes are so contentious. Look, I could bang on for ever mate and many would stick their oar in to contest or even disagree. Here is a simple guide with both Fruit/Fruits and Fish/Fishes in noun form. If there is more than one species altogether, then they are FRUITS FISHES. If they are all the same species then they are FRUIT FISH. The correction you've shown doesn't make sense to me and is wrong. If you are certain that it corrected you thus, then report it. Un/Une is both a/an and one and can be translated as either in this given task sentence. There is just a chance that on this one occasion Duo didn't like "1" as opposed to "One". Elsewhere it accepts "1" as "One".
