How do I know whether to use „discipuli“ or „discipulae“ as the plural subject? Another sentence in the course starts with „discipulae“ instead.
discipuli = male students (also referring to a group of both male and female students)
discipulae = female students
Why not "discipulos"?
Because it needs to be in the nominative here.
It is very disturbing for me right now. I'll have to revise my latin book I guess! Thank you for your quick answer!
It's easy: nominative each time it's the subject.
Accusative when it's the direct complement of a verb, usually.
The terminology in English is "direct object" of a verb. Complements are very different things, grammatically, and there is no such thing as a "direct complement".
Discunt is learning languages!
"Discunt" is "they learn". What was the full text of your answer?
Lol I saw what you did there.
Why does the noun lingua is linguas? Is not supposed that it is in Accusative?
Yes, accusative plural.
Thanks for your time in answering me!
my answer "discipuli linguae discunt" was accepted as having a typo, but it's the wrong declension - not a typo - don't know where to report
The course contributors have no control over what gets marked as a typo.
You can report mistakes on the page of the lesson itself, situated next to the tab with 'discuss'.
Yes, but the problem is that we can report mistakes, but not the false positive typo. Rae explained above the problem with typo, it's a known bug, but nothing we could do for now.
There is an option to report "My answer should not be accepted" on most of the questions.
I'm not sure what is done with that report though.
Why is "disculpae" not accepted as correct?
It's spelled "discipulae".
That would explain it. Thanks!
I wish the actual app itself worked like it does in practice because I learn way more in practice than I do in the course itself yet I get nowhere in the course itself
discunt vs discit?
When to use linguam vs linguas?
