Marking possessive of plural nouns in English

  • 2067

In the Genetive section, there are sentences like this one: Das ist das Haus meiner Gro├čeltern.

To translate that into more idiomatic English, one would write: That is my grandparents' house.

However, if you use the correct form of plural possessive for nouns that take an s to show plurality (grandparents'), it gets marked as being a typo and that one should write grandparents.

This is something the moderators need to fix.

This is something Duolingo developers need to fix -- it's not a part of the marking process that course moderators and contributors have power over.

Did you try reporting it at that sentence?
