Translation:the Klingon consonant Q
Duolingo is having a hard time understanding that qay and Qay are different letters here. Students: what you hear is Qay, correctly pronounced. Duo is offering you tiles labelled both qay and Qay -- but as of today, both produce the same sound when selected, and the sound they produce is qay. Listen to the difference and be smarter than the Duolingo platform. Savoq. Suval!
In the exercise, there is written: "Translate this sentence [speaker symbol] Qay". But the sound given there (I think it's a younger person speaking) seems to be the sound of ghay. I do not hear the hard opening sound at the beginning. If I understood correctly, there should be an opening hard sound of a q, followed by the guttural sound, to result in the sound of Q.
(Here on top of the discussion, the sound is different, it's correct a **Qay.) 2020-08-26
