Why is there a t before eader lion?


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

Eader-: inter-; lìon: net, web. You can likely do the rest for yourself.
Lion derives from flax, linen, similar to the word leine. See: https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/l%C3%ACon#Scottish_Gaelic And: https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/eadar-#Scottish_Gaelic

Could you remove this one as it will not accept the correct answer.

You need to add the hyphens, otherwise your answer won't be accepted.

Thanks for keeping up this site for us! I can't begin to imagine how much work y'all put into this.

Could you please resolve the problem with this one

It has worked for me with and without the hyphens.
