i got this sentence as an audio and wrote "他也不知道" instead of "她也不知道“. Shouldn't the second one be accepted also as both 'he' and 'she' are the exact same pronunciation wise?
If there's anything that will make me stop using Duolingo, it's this.
他 has a male radical in the front and 她 has a female radical in the front
but if you are listening to it you cannot tell is its - ta 她 or ta 他
But they still sound the same
yup same issue here...
Do they have the same pronounciation?
i know right! me too.
Same thing here!
他也不知道 is MALE
"她也不知道“.is FEMALE. Statement starts SHE...........
Or "she also does not know."
How am I possibly meant to know whether this is 他 or 她？
I agree. It seems that the developers are working on allowing 她 and 他 to both be accepted for listening exercises, as I've noticed both being accepted in certain cases. Not all yet, unfortunately.
Duo - please fix this ASAP. This is yet another example of an audio question using "ta" where it is impossible to know whether to use "她“ or "他". Currently wrong on 6/26/19.
I am wondering why It could be Not + either?
Should it be She does not know neither?
"She doesn't know neither" is a double negative and so isn't really used in standard or formal English. "She doesn't know either" is used instead.
ANOTHER case of 他 vs 她 not being interchangeable on the audio exercise when using a keyboard. When it's an audio exercise and I have to type the answer myself, then both should be accepted!
Also and either are interchangeable. So should be given marks for both
There are two forms of he/she. "他“ is masculine and "她” is feminine; however, both of these pronouns have the same pronunciation. So, the system should accept both masculine and feminine answers.
Why "either" ?
也 means also so it says "she also doesn't know" but that's funny in English so you would say either
I put this and it makes sense to me. Why is also not accepted.
Why not "she is also unaware"? Happy New Year 2019
why not "Neither she knows""?
It's not good English. "Neither does she know." is what I think you're looking for and it
might be heard when spoken by someone from the UK but "neither" is not widely used by people from the U.S.
他也不知道 should also be accepted for this listening exercise. It's too bad "my answer should be accepted" isn't one of the options under report...
If in an audio you here "ta", assume it is "she", as it most usually is. :)
If in an audio you here "ta", assume it is "her" or "she", as it most usually is.
either.......utter pain when missed but sentence is still the same so no problem..
The sentence can also be read as
She also don't know
but Duolingo says it is incorrect
Why "she also don't know" is not acceptable rather than "she don't know either"
I typed "she didn't know either" and it got me wrong. Isn't it the same with "she doesn't know either"?
Duolingo said it should be “she TOO does not know.”
( I am an an angel!
Is the pronunciation of 她 is tha (h like in hospital) ? And of 知 is dje ?
I have some problem with pronunciation i need your help.
她 (tā) is pronounced how it is spelt, with a high tone. Think of "Ta", like the synonym for thank-you.
知 (zhī) is pronounced "Jer", with a high tone.
It should work with "he" as well!
他 is he, 她 is she, 它 is it. All 3 are "ta" but use different characters
他 and 她 are pronounced the same but mean different things (he and she).
It's clearly "she", because of the 女 at the beginning of 她
When I got this question, I was asked to transcribe what I heard. I got it wrong because I used 他 instead of 她. I think that's what they meant by "it should work with 'he' as well" -- both 他 and 她 should be accepted when transcribing.
Seeing somewhere that it can also read "she did not know either."
she does not know also is wrong? the correct answer was she does not know too. 也 is also. why is also wrong and too is correct?
I put she does not know , i forgot the either,do any of you do that a lot?
That 他 is not accepted for an audio question makes me want to quit Duolingo, and tell everybody to stay away from it...
I translated it 'she also doesn't understand' it translates it 'she doesn't know either'... not much difference there! Should accept mine answer also!
why "she also don't know" is wrong
Probably because "she also don't" should be "she also doesn't," or, without the contractions, "she also do not" should be "she also does not." "She does" not "she do:"
You (singular) do.
You (all) do.
what symbol can be used for either
Gloss-over not terribly helpful here in understanding how words combine to make meaningful sentence.
It's literally, She--also--no--know.
她-she 也-also 不-no 知道 -know
I would translate the sentence as "she also doesn't know" which has the same word order as the Chinese.
This sounds close to how we Jamaicans speak lol. She nuh know also
Chinese characters are not words, they are characters. It's like asking how English letters combine to make a meaningful sentence
I had "She also don't know" and the stupid duo marked it wrong! DUO, YOU ARE DUMB
She also doesn't know should be okay but "She don't" is plain wrong. Sorry, but the owl is not to blame for this one.
I'm pretty sure "He does not know" should be accepted here too...
I got this as a listening question, where you cannot know if it's a "he" or "she". In that case both should be accepted.
她 means "she", but not "he", even though both are pronounced ta. So you would be right if you were only listening to it, but if you saw the written sentence it could only be "she does not know"
