  5. "We run and we jump."

"We run and we jump."

Translation:maqet 'ej maSup.

June 6, 2019



I think there's a bug with this exercise. I was asked to translate "We run and we jump" and was given a multiple choice of:

  • Maqet 'ej maSup.
  • Maqet maH lodpu' maSup maH.
  • Be'pu' maH 'ej maSup maH.

I chose the first one, but the bug that I think there is, is that all the sentences begin with a capital letter, which I think is wrong. I've copied them exactly as I was given, and I don't think they're grammatically correct in Klingon. I hope that makes sense. I'll report this as a bug to Duolingo as well here: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new


This is a known bug in the software. Those multiple choice answers are not entered by the volunteers, but created randomly by the software. As part of that process the software makes sure all the sentences have "correct" capitalization (that is, correct by European standards, not by Klingon standards). You can read about the other known problems at https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/26778885 There is no need to post such instances here, in the sentence discussions, but it may be of some small benefit to continue to report them to Duolingo staff as bugs to encourage them to make them a higher priority.


I've sent the bug report now.
