Ok, I put "dirtiness" and was marked wrong. The "correct" answer was "I don't like dirt." They've clearly changed the answer. Both should be accepted.

How about "i dont like dirt"?

Many of the N/U class is about concepts and intangibles, so dirt isn't quite correct in this case.

It's one of the hover translations, however.

'Dirt' can have the same intangible sense as 'dirtiness'.

No it can't really, although occasionally it gets used as if it can.

If "dirt" is an accepted naswer, how can "dirt" be wrong? Get your list straight
