I replied "We saw Mara but we do not see Torg" I think "We see Mara but we do not see Torg" would have been correct as well? Are you grading my English?
I just got the question again and replied in correct present tense so, Yes. the other way is correct as well. Tense agreement is correct English but did I understand the Klingon?
Why We see mara but we did not saw torg is not an acceptable answer? Because did not saw torg the verb is in past?
Theoretically it could possibly mean that, but it would require some really unusual context for the two parts to have separate time contexts. At some point we contributors have to decide that we have reached our limit on reasonable alternative translations. If you put both sentences in the present tense, that will be accepted. And if you put both sentences in the past tense, that will be accepted. But if you put one sentence in the past and one in the present, then it will not be accepted.
So, can you give me a hand? Because I can't use keyboard in Duolingo app. Use the keyboard is just possible in web version? qatlho' Qapla' je!
Are you saying it was a tile exercise and you didn't have the correct words?
It seems like Duolingo picked a past tense version for you. If you had just switched "see" and "saw" it would have been correct. "We saw Mara but we did not see Torg" would have had both sentences in the past tense.
Remember that when you use "do" in English, "do" conjugates for person and tense and the main verb should be in the infinitive. It is not correct English to say, "did not saw". You have to say "did not see".
So that's the problem. The infinitive I don't learn about that. My first language isn't English at all. Thanks for the help! Qapla'!
