The slow version has a distorted but recognizable rendition of grand. The fast version sounds like an entirely different word.
The audio does not pronounce the "d" at the end of "grand," so you know that it is masculine. Only the feminine form of "grande" pronounces the "d."
I agree. If you extend the thought, you are saying 'you are taller than I am' and would never say 'you are taller than me am'
And you would never say "they are fewer than us"? As said before, there are endless debates on the subject. Hope both are accepted here.
Correct English is "you are taller than I" OR "you are taller than me".
Feel free to google "than I vs than me" to find debates.
Why was "You are bigger than I" marked wrong. "I" is the correct word in English grammar because the full sentence would be "You are taller than I AM," but for the fact that the word "am" is assumed. And "bigger" is a correct definition of "grand" every other time I've used it with Duolingo.
Because there isn't a word here for 'much'. If you wanted to say that, you'd say; tu es beaucoup plus grand que moi
How often is a sentence like this used? Would anyone who speaks French say this?
Not very often because people tend to simplify their speech and "tu es plus grand que moi" is much simpler.
objecttive case I wis correct nominative case--through out illiterate answers foreign to Entglish garammar--although most Americans make the mistake of confusing use of objective rather than nominative case
