Pronunciation of FORTE.
Duolingo sometimes pronounces the French word "forte" as for-TAY. This needs to be corrected. (It appears to happen most often when the word is said alone, or is at the end of the sentence).
"Forte" is pronounced like "fort" the "o" is pronounced like that : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-mid_back_rounded_vowel
Unlike the masculine form "fort", you pronounced the "t" for the feminine form "forte".
I think they know and are reporting an error, rather than asking a question.
Absolutely. What is the best way to report this error so that Duolingo will correct it?
I used the button. I just hope they pay attention, as the error is very bad. : )
When you say "forte" you must place a certain emphasis on the last t, that sometimes may sound like for-teh. But I don't think that a vowel can sound AY in French since French vowels don't make diphthongs but have a "pure"sound AFAIK
