plural of temler

Apologies for another very basic question; I looked it up on Hol ‘ampaS and the boQwI’ app but didn’t find an answer.

I was just working on the science skill in the app, and one of the sentences referred to seventeen elements. The correct term for elements was tamler. I know the plural is optional in Klingon, but why isn’t tamlermey acceptable?

Many thanks as always

Edit to add: I’m sure this isn’t news to anyone, but on the off chance it’s useful: the capitalization problem caused by Duolingo software seems to have gotten significantly worse in word bank questions as of this morning. I took a couple screenshots if you want them, including one where there were two ses choices instead of one ses and one SeS, which I believe is more common in this course.

I think I found the sentence you are referring to and it was, indeed, missing the options with -mey. I have added them now. This is a terrible place to report such problems, since our lookup tools are not really that great. But I suppose if you were acting too quick and already missed your chance to hit the report flag, there are not many other choices.

As for the word banks, there's not much we can do about them, except report them as bugs. If it happens again, please take a screen shot and post it for us and/or send it to bug reports.

jIyaj. I apologize for posting on the forum rather than the sentence discussion directly. I did so because I ran into the sentence while using the app, and then didn’t see it again after a few trips through the same skill on my phone’s web browser. I also wasn’t confident enough in my use of -mey to flag the exercise as problematic. I’ve learned my lesson though— this was the first time in a while I’ve used the app, and of course I had a question come up.

I’ve already submitted a bug report, and will happily post a few screenshots when I’m back at my computer.
