"Ow" really should be accepted as an answer

is "ow" not an acceptable translation of "au"?


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

No. The finnish version of 'ouch' is 'au' only.

Right, but when it is asking for the English translation, it doesn't accept "ow"

I'm trying not to sound nitpicky, but if "ow" doesn't mean "au" then what is the Finnish equivalent?

Shouldn't "Ouch! That potato is really warm" also be accepted?

Yeah it is ;)

Is Hot Potato a game that school children play in Finland? Just curious.

Like it is in Australia? :) There is a song by the Wiggles called like that.
