"maybe" is one word.

Did you report it?


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

the report options for Swahili to English only give "Swahili sentence is wrong" as an option. Still being marked wrong March 2018

I am not aware of any place where it can be reported except by commenting.


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

Is there a button that says "report a problem" to the left of the "discuss sentence" button?


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

For this question it only gives a multiple choice selection; not an option for describing the problem.

I'd still report using one of the options available. Not as helpful, I know, but it's something.


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

none of the options allow you to specify that the English is the problem

Unless I am just possibly forgetting an example of a time when this sentence would be used, I can't think of a time I would ever use this in English. Does this sentence make sense, or seem practical to a Swahili speaker? Just wondering!


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

my thoughts exactly! Only way it would be used in English is to get out of something, for example: "Did you cook in this kitchen yesterday" (i.e. left a mess). "umm....Maybe I cooked.." (I'm not committing until I find out why I'm being asked)

Have neither of you ever been forgetful??


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

sorry, I forgot about that application ; )


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

there is no space in between the "may" and the "be" in maybe


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

Why not ‘perhaps’?

It is tipic for Duolingo giving these kind of ....sentences. Matter is about presenting ( here) adverb in some simple connection. And of xcourse " maybe " should be written tpgether. :)
