"He offered more money."
Translation:Él ofreció más dinero.
My last EIGHT sentences: "He offered more money." "She offered more." "She insisted." "She took out a knife." "She considered me her boyfriend." "He caught up with me." "She insisted." "He offered more money." That is the end of my lesson. Tune in to Duolingo next time for the exciting conclusion!
Could someone help to explain why moneda is not an acceptable answer instead of dinero? I understand that moneda usually refers to the physical objects of bills and coins, but I do not understand why that would be illogical here.
Moneda is not cash, it is coins. Cash money is efectivo, while money in general is dinero. The reason you use dinero in this sentence is because the referent is to money in general. It would be a rare case when you would say "He offered more coins".
Also, you double posted this comment. Can you delete one to save space?
I'm over 65 years and I can't tell the difference between your dotted i and the accent mark even with my glasses.
i don't remember "plata" being used for money in any of the previous lessons.
In Chile they almost always say "plata" unless speaking formally or to a foreigner/anglophone who may be more familiar with "dinero". The word "luca" (like lucre) also has a special place when talking about money (can be used for money in general but also refers to 1000 pesos, so a pack of cigarettes costs almost 3 luca)
A pack of smokes costs almost 3000 pesos? And here I thought the American penny is worthless.
It does, I am unsure whether is used in the whole Latin America though, but for sure it's extended.
So plata is silver, the metal. In the old times coins used to be minted out of silver... and they still call it plata.
I am quite confident saying that most of the Spanish speaking world will understand you, whether they use or not. I am sure that in Colombia they use it. It is not slang or a nickname (like bucks or whatever) that's the word.
