i have a sound icon here and when i click it, it plays the audio. However it is absolutely wrong. They didn't do a good job with the text-to-speech machine here, this is beside جاكيت is simply an adaptation to the English word Jacket and not a real Arabic word. The Arabic one should be سترة (sutrah), and maybe sometimes معطف (Mi3t^af).
Generally speaking, The root (S T R) is about covering or blocking. Some words extracted from this root:
- سِتار (sitár): cover/veil.
- سِتارَة (sitárah): curtain - the first one can also be used for "curtain".
- ساتِر (sátir): block/cover/barrier.
- السَتّار (al-sattár): The Coverer, one of Allah's titles.
I am using Duolingo through a mobile phone. I have never seen or heard the words that they ask me to translate, before. I have been thrown at this directly after doing simple syllable matches. There is no sound icon next to the upper left part and if I try to report any of the above, I only get a "There's a problem with the exercise" option, so I can't even explain what the problem is about, before submitting it. Any suggestions, please?
