"What date is it?"
Did Duolingo reject that? I didn't see adding the year as an option, but I'd imagine it would still technically be correct. Still, like you said I think it's rather uncommon to ask for the year in daily conversion
Unless you come from a land with a different calendar, like Israel, but still, you would ask it just once.
No, in Chinese dates and times are always written from large to small (i.e. year, month, day), and inserting 几 doesn't change that
Nop, in chinese you have to follow an order when you speak, it'll be always the following sequence, year, month, day.
I don't believe so. The order is from general time to more specific time. Month > Day of a month Just like time of day > actual time like 今天下午五點。。。下午tells it is afternoon and 5 tells specific time in afternoon. Hope that helps
Why 几月几号 sounds like jíyuèjíhào, not jìyuèjìhào? As I know, the third sound + others except the same should be the fourth, and third + third becomes second + third.
