It does not seem to recognise idiomatic language. My translations are what would be perfectlty acceptable, and grammatically corect in English, but Duolingo marks me wrong! Annoying for we Scots.

I'm sure that this has been discussed before, but I am only discovering that there are notes now in Unit 2. Why is there suddenly no "h" in piuthar? Someone else said that adding an h somewhere else was called "lenition". But the word sister must surely stay feminine all the time, right?
