He has planes, camels, and now an Austrian palace? Life's good for some!
Dentists don't do that anymore. Teeth are designed to look natural now. Unless you mean the 'bling'.
You have probably forgotten about this pearl here: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/26544922/Duo-has-teeth-made-from-gold
A shopping mall, gold teeth, and now a palace in Austria. Let's see what next Duo will buy.
Why did they have to pick Duo. It doesn't soind at all like any other german pronouns
It's not a pronoun, but a proper noun... like Thomas. I suppose it is intended to imply a person (or owl) fluent in two (duo) languages.
According to wiktionary, Schloss means palace, not fortified, too.
Heidelberg Schloss - Heidelberg Castle
Burg Hohenzollern - Hohenzollern Castle
Karlsruher Schloss - Karlsruhe Palace
Well, at least we know the place Duo bought is not fortified. Lol.
Yes, they do. Castle = Schloss, palace = Palast. I have already reported the mistake.
Neuschwanstein liegt nicht in Österreich, sondern in Deutschland. Vielleicht Schloss Oberwerfen wäre ein besserer Vorschlag!
That would be in the past tense. Something like "duo hat ein Schloss gekauft"
Oe seems like the standard substitution for Ö when umlauts are not possible or otherwise easily accessible. I imagine that that way of writing is informal, but it appears to be academically acceptible when umlauts are not possible (as in URLs). Replacing the Ö with just an O does not appear to work as a substitution, so that would be a misspelling.
Guys you can also buy a castle (or even a palace) in Austria, like me, and be Duo's neighbour. Believe me, Duo is a good neighbour - always sleeps at day, but is awake all night!
DL didn't accept "Duo buys a Schloss in Austria." Schloss is a recognized word in English. Bummer.
I'm not a native English speaker, but maybe a Schloss is not spread enough in English to be recognized?
I appreciate the thought, but suspect that Duo wants to have us translate even words that have come into English usage. Can't really blame them.
Whatever could this mean? And it is so odd that on the question page it says there are 10 comments, but when I click to read them, there are none here, and this notice: "No one has commented yet."
I just wrote Duo buys I cassle in Austria And it wasn't accepted? Can anyone tell me why?
