Accept "trousers"!

liath - also grey?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CIMacAonghais

Yes! Liath is both light blue and grey. :)

Liath is also the spelling for "gray". I typed in "I have gray trousers on", while it didn't mark my answer wrong I got confused when "light blue" came up instead of "gray".

I thought gorm was blue and gray is glas and liath could be added to signify that the hue is light. Briogais gorm liath makes more sense to me as light blue trousers. Well it's confusing but, hey lots of fun anyway!

"i have on light gray pants" was not accepted and it probably should be.
