I put 'every day' and it wants 'everyday'. No. And there's no option to say 'my answer should be accepted'. 'everyday' is usually an adjective, e.g. 'my everyday shoes', different from my fancy shoes. Every day means each day, so that was correct for this, but it would not accept it.
It accepted my "every day" so the reports must have helped, but did indicate that it was an incorrect spelling.
It also accepted my "every day", but told me it should be " everyday". I also disagree that it should be one word.
And after 5 years, although "every day" is accepted, the "correct" answer is still "I take a bath everyday", which, as CTrinity points out, is an adjective, and is used incorrectly by Duo.
Couldn't agree more. The words "every day" used as an adverbial phrase in a sentence is definitely two words and not one as Duolingo suggests. Only in front of a noun (used as an adjective) it would be written as one word.
Is tutti i giorni equivalent to ogni giorno and quotidianamente? Or are there different situations where one or the other would be better?
Same question here, but no responses. And, how would you say "all the days" in a collective sense rather than the sense of "each?"
It certainly does. In fact, it is an incorrect use of the adjective "everyday," meaning "common," to use it here to describe an activity that happens on a daily schedule. I have brought this to the attention of the good folks at Duolingo, so I hope we will soon see it corrected to the two words, "every day."
While my answer was marked as correct: ("I take a bath every day"), my answer was highlighted by suggesting I had not written "every day" correctly. Duolingo still wants us to write "everyday" (without the space between the 2 words) . In this instance, every day (with the space) is correct! Someone commented on this same issue 4 years ago and Duolingo has yet to fix the problem. Sometimes I feel like Duolingo has left us entirely to fend for ourselves without fixing errors. There no longer seem to be any native Italian language Duo staff who chime in on threads from time to time with help. It is one of the things that keeps me from paying for Duolingo Plus. While I am still grateful for the service, it can be frustrating.
Over here in Canada, when I see bagno, I am thinking bathroom. Not in the sense of "bath" but in the sense of toilet. So my translation of this sentence was much different than taking a bath. Coupled with mis-translating the plural tutti i giorni "each day" as "the whole day" made my laugh even more at my translation.
the owl wants''everyday''
''every day'' and ''everyday'', in these parts [eastern US] DO NOT mean the same thing. ''Everyday'' is an adjective meaning regular or common. I go to work in my everyday denims, not the fancy clothes I wear to weddings and funerals, which do not happen every day. in my opinion, ''everyday'' is not much in common usage, you don't hear it every day. the owl needs to get with it.
Why do they translate FACCIO as 'I take' (prendo), not as I MAKE? I wrote "I make a bath every day", and was marked wrong.
"Fare" is a very diverse verb in Italian and can mean many things. For example: Fare i compiti..to do one's homework, Fare le spese...to go shopping, fare una domanda....to ask a question. Even in English when we say: "I take a bath every day", we are stretching the meaning of "to take"....we are not literally taking the bath anywhere. We understand that sentence to mean that you bathe each day. So we have to stretch our understanding of "fare" similarly. I know it's not easy but there are many websites that further explain the uses of "fare" in Italian and I've found them helpful; I've tried to commit some of the more common phrases like the one in this example, to memory. Good luck.
English. It's been five years, so I don't expect you to remember what this comment is about, but it's really quite an obscure observation. What the heck are you asking?
I'm English but I disagree with that! To run a bath means to put the water in it, but to take a bath (or to have a bath) means to get in it and wash. Two different things.
