'Mohamed' is not the only valid English spelling of the Arabic name "مُحَمَّد". 'Muhammad' is another valid and common spelling. In fact 'Muhammad' is phonetically more accurate. But currently Duolingo is accepting only 'Mohamed' as valid spelling.
Why is it not 'al mohamed' to show the possessive ie. Mohamed's?
You never use "al" with personal names, they are already definite.
Asking the real questions here(i was wondering that too) and everyone else is more concerned on name spelling...
Yeah, agreed. I believe this is an incorrect genitive.
Spell check called him Muhammad, not me. But it got marked incorrect. Couldn't I at least spend some of my lingos to have my spelling of Muhammad accepted?
How would you say "Mohamad's expensive restaurant"?
By adding the definite article to the adjective: مطعم محمد الغالي
Muhammad is the spelling that should be really accepted by Duolingo
the only difference between your answer and mine is that I spelled Muhammad correctly (there is a shaddah over the MIM, so it should be doubled in a transliteration.
Sort the spelling of the name please...!!
Muhammad is a CORRECT spelling.
Muhammad is also a valid pronunciation
Mohammad is also a valid spelling......please accept this.
I put "expensive" and it corrected me with "expnesive", I've got the screenshot. Who checks that?
Mohammad is not pronaunced as in Arrabic
