Lesson typo, where to report?
In the Numbers 1 class in Romanian, there is the following paragraph: "Here are a few examples. It's also common in Romanian to use the prepositon de between multiples (apar from sută) in order to form larger numerals but it is not necessary." Inside the brackets, the word 'apar' should be 'apart'. How do I report this to the people who actually edit the text?
This is the place to report bugs (take "Other bugs" option): https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new.
Romanian native language speaker. Wait, what's that about "de" not being necessary? Can you give me an example of what you mean please? I can't think of an example where I am using large numers and don't use "de". And if I want to say "one hundred sheep" I'll still say "O sută de oi", "O sută oi" doesn't make sense unless you want to sound like a bureaucrat from the 1920s.
The error that he wants to report is: ”Inside the brackets, the word 'apar' should be 'apart'.” The error inside the lesson should also be reported, AndreiVChirilă, please do it!
You can read the lesson he cited :) It is a citation from the first lesson for numerals in Romanian course (here). They sayd so: >Here are a few examples. It's also common in Romanian to use the prepositon de between multiples (apar from sută) in order to form larger numerals but it is not necessary.
Right, my bad, I misunderstood, I thought that was his own interpretation of it.
In that case yes, I have to say it is quite wrong. I would never use a number larger than 20 without the "de" preposition because starting at 20 you use a form literally translated as "two tens of sheep" and it wouldn't make sense without the "of" as you can see.
How should I report this? It's not a bug per se, could you give me a link please?
I agree it is not a classic ”bug”... The link I shared in the front of this discussion is still good for that. Take ”Other bugs”.
Also the link in your comment is broken, I can see that the path should take me to the tips and notes for that lesson but I guess because i'm not on that course I can't actually see it. If I click it it leads me to the main page. Just as an FYI though :) I'll report the numbers thing now
Maybe you are not logged in or not on Romanian course, thank you for this observation, I think it's a redirect... Also for reporting what you noticed about the lesson on big numbers, too.
