Onko hän amerikkalainen?

Missed a spot! Both he and she need to be accepted for "hän" here :)

Still counting a typo.

I reported this as "something else is wrong"

In a negative case of "tajuta", like this one, the tone can be a bit belittling/ridiculing; like the other person's intelligence is being put down. Kinda like saying in English "he just doesn't get it" (he should, but doesn't 'cause he's a bit thick or smth). Of course, how one says it can affect a great deal how it sounds.

Anyway, "Hän ei ymmärrä/ tiedosta" could sound less passive-aggressive, if one wants to avoid being offensive.

Thanks, that is useful. But I think the implication here is not necessarily to be complementary.

Hän is either he or she

Hän ei tajua, että Berliini ei ole Bern. :P

I don't know for sure whether it's just my session or not, but the "ei" here has a lag in it and sounds like "tee" or "kee"

He is still getting the wrong buzzer!

It's been added a week ago, so it might be another week before it finally works on all platforms.

This had been reported many times and still is taken for wrong. Hän is she and he.

It is accepted now (Sep 2021).

It is still giving me the Buzzer!
