I was wondering why this isn't "malá děti", since "děti" is the plural of "dítě", which is neuter, and we have learned "malá" is neuter plural, as in "malá zvířata"?
In reviewing the lesson's Tips and Notes, I now understand that the plural of the neuter singular "dítě" IS feminine. I thought it only meant the word's plural form has an irregular ending, but it is actually declined as feminine. How very peculiar! Is this a rarity even in Czech, or is this a common behavior of a class of neuter nouns?
The Tips & Notes are available from a desktop or mobile browser only, not in the apps. To find them, click on a Skill, then click on the light bulb icon. If there is no light bulb, there are no T&N for that Skill. They are mostly available for the earlier Skills in the course.
That's good to know! I I didn't even realize there was a web version, I was under the impression that duolingo was only an app. It would be super helpful if that info was thrown in as an ad, or maybe after you get an incorrect answer or something. I've just been struggling along trying to google the most confusing things haha.
