Could you not say. ."Peu à peu" instead of "petit à petit"? Or is that just wrong?
Yes, that is a correct and usual alternative.
DL marked peu à peu incorrect. I've reported it, Jan. 4.
Thanks for that. It's accepted now. It seems more natural to me.
"Peu à peu" is still marked wrong 6 months after reporting it
Fixed now, thanks!
Can "petite" not be used here because "l'eau" is masculine? Or is there a different reason?
"petit à petit" is an adverbial phrase, like "peu à peu" which means the same thing.
Why not "pas à pas"?
why is it 'l'eau devient'? water is singular isn't it?
It is singular, that's why it's "l'eau devient". If it was plural it would be "les eaux devieNNENT".
Duolingo, taking it up a notch.
peu a peu? Still not accepted. This is doing my head in.
