I wrote "Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No!" knowing full well it'd probably be marked wrong, but I had to do it anyway. Thanks, coursewriters, for the grin, and for the momentary childhood memories of old (i.e., 1950s) Superman cartoons. :-)

I think we'll have to add "plane" to the accepted translations here ... and/or create a separate version of this sentence with muD Duj in it :)

Cool! Thank you. I just came up against the repeat sentence in the same lesson, and I inadvertently typed "plane" AGAIN! Still wrong as of this moment. :-)
