Translation:The might of the mountains intimidates the boy.
I was given the option to put "blēno" or "blēnoti" in "__ kostion taobe ossȳngas" when either could work, and said I was wrong for choosing the former
Please do report these. I was under the impression that the "fill in the blank" questions would give you a translation to work with. I had no idea that the only thing they gave you was the High Valyrian. I'd made a lot of "fill in the blank" questions before I knew about this problem. I can go back and fix them (or just delete them), but I need to know they're there first. Use the free write reports if you can. Will fix this one now!
they said i had a typo when i translated the sentence as shown above. i was suggested to write "the mountains power" without an apostrophe instead. err. no matching report option.
This is a known issue in Duolingo; not just in the High Valyrian course. Duolingo has a real problem accepting plural possessives (i.e. English plural possessives that end with an apostrophe). I'm slowing changing the best answer for all of these questions so that they prefer X of Y instead of Ys' X. Hopefully Duolingo will fix this one day.
Would it not be correct to say blento ? Or can the words not be possessive of intangibles?
