"Il gusto non è dolce."

Translation:The flavor is not sweet.

my answer is "it does not taste sweet", why is it wrong?

May 16, 2013


I gave the exact same answer and it was correct.

January 21, 2014


Of course that's probably because people reported it and it's now accepted. Glad to hear it.

If i would translate your sentence it would be : non ha un sapore dolce, maybe someone can offer a different translation with gustare.

May 16, 2013


Because 'gusto' means flavour, not taste.

August 30, 2016


I wrote "taste" and it was considered correct until now.

November 20, 2017


My answer was the same

July 26, 2014


Its the flavour is not sweet

gusto is translated as taste so why come up with flavour?

May 15, 2013


"gusto" is also "flavour or flavor". I'm not a native english speaker but for me "The taste is not sweet" works as well. btw "sapore" also means "flavor or flavour ". I don't know which one is more common.

this translation is a bit confusing because strictly speaking flavor = sensory impression determined by both smell and taste, while the smell is bigger factor.

"The taste is not sweet' is accepted.

December 20, 2013


Not today. Perhaps, as a moderator you could add it. It seems another moderator has removed it. I am new at learning Italian, so not in a position to give my opinion. However, I have read on this page that 'gusto' means flavour, not taste. In English there is a subtle difference in meaning, but not enough, I submit, to exclude it as an accepted translation variant.

Still not accepted. Inconsistencies like this are disappointing.

I can't speak for other English speaking countries, but in American English taste and flavor are used interchangeably, even if it is not technically correct.

"Il dolce gusto" vs. "Il gusto dolce" Which one's correct? Thanks in advance~

July 21, 2013


I've asked an italian and he said it's il gusto dolce. Most of the times the adjective is on the back. 'La dolce vita' is in that aspect a poetic way of saying it.

Wow, I LOVED the English pronounciation poem! =)

January 25, 2015


Love italian, it's so easy if you already know spanish and english

October 24, 2015


Yes, to me they seem like sisters !! (Spanish & Italian)

Il gusto non è dolce.... È acido!

May 17, 2017


Just a tip : Gusto/i can be used in the same way we use "taste/s" in English , For example, for the sentence "People have different tastes" you would use "Gusti" for the word "tastes"

Does not accept spice, I'll report.

March 11, 2017


Spice is a naturally occurring ingredient that is used for flavouring, preserving or colouring food. You can say that food has a spicy taste/flavour, but the word 'spice' cannot be substituted for either of these.

which key does one use to type accent. It checks me on this. I put accent at the side not on top.

January 27, 2018


Taste should be valid.

August 29, 2018


It is valid. I wrote "the taste isn't sweet" and it was accepted as correct translation.

December 10, 2018


"la torta è dolce" and "il gusto è dolce". I wonder why doesn't "dolce" change depending on whether the noun is masculine / feminine? Can anyone explain this or is it an exception?

May 21, 2013


Adjectives in Italian that end in 'e' do not change based on gender, only based on plurality. Adjectives ending in 'o' or 'a' change based on gender of the noun.

Example: She is tall and sweet = "Lei è alta e dolce" He is tall and sweet = "Lui è alto e dolce"

Es un adjetivo neutro. I think in eglish i would have to say: it is a neutral adjective. Idk italian, but in spanish there are adjectives that change deppending if the noun is femmenine or masculine , but there are others that are neutral and do not change. And you just gotta remember all of them.

How do I add the accent to a letter when using a smartphone?

November 2, 2014

March 3, 2015
