It's not missing for me. It says "ne."

Anyone able to instruct us on when to use this construction vs. aucun?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/STRADS1551

That's a good question. I'd like to know too. Does "Frédérique n'a jamais payé aucun café" mean the same?

It's accepted as well.

Has never paid should be accepted. Also 'for one single coffee' is fine

We should never be marked wrong for spelling a name incorrectly only. It has nothing to do with learning the French language, its grammar, or its diction. This is absurd, especially when trying to test out of a level. No one cares how the silly made-up names are spelled since they have absolutely nothing to do with real success. In AE we usually spell Marc, M A R K. So, I thought Duo wanted a full translation and I was marked wrong. Tell me who automatically knows how to spell Frederick the French way? It is the only thing I got wrong and I failed the question. Stop the nonsense!

Frédéric vs. Frédérique ? Why is Frederic not acceptable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/--Roody--

A name is a name. You never translate it.

In French Frédéric is a male name and
Frédérique is it's female form.

That's why they aren't interchangeable.

Frédéric accepted 9/20. Sounds too similar, especially with the bot voice, to mark us wrong IMHO.
