"Auntie" or "auntie" should also be accepted.

"Aunty" is not accepted

Another example of Duolingo's weird English. I guess there's nothing strictly wrong but "Aunt" as a proper noun feels unnatural. You would almost always expect it to be my aunt/your aunt/our aunt/his aunt/the blasted aunt (if you are Bertie Wooster)etc.

In India, 'aunt' isn't used too much informally either. We say 'auntie/aunty'!
