That's a tough situation. I'd say "Check your emails for notifications from Duolingo"... but you don't remember which email account you were using.

Do you have the app installed on a mobile device? If so, does it automatically log you in? Can you determine your username that way?

I hate to say it, but you might just need to start anew with this account. On the bright side, you'll still be learning, and a little review never hurt anyone. It's still got to be exasperating, though.

Our beloved Lrtward explained everything perfectly. I just wanted to add that you can write a list of all your accounts, with all their details on paper, and on a notepad on a device, in case this should happen again.

Also, in case you're worried that someone should find the note or paper and hack your account, you can, instead of writing your down your password, only give a hint to it that only you will understand. :)

Good luck and all the best!

You say you've been trying combinations of email and passwords. But doesn't duolingo give you an option for "I forgot my password"? I would try each email account in turn, clicking on "I forgot my password" and see if one of those turns up your old account.
