Si! E enorme!


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

Can I use "ora" and "adesso" in the same context?

Modern tables and electric shoes are hot right now

Is there a lesson to help with the difference between 'cos'è, cose, cosa, etc. ?


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

la cosa = the thing; le cose = the things/stuff; "cos'è" comes from "cosa è" that means "what is".

"Cos'è popolare ora?" = "What is popular now?"

"Non so che cos'è questo" = "I don't know what is this"

whats the difference between Che cos'e ? and Cos'e?

Che cosa fa? and Cosa fa?

in other words, what is the "che" doing?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZuMako8_Momo

For "what" as a question word, you can use «che», «cosa», or «che cosa» pretty interchangeably most times.

Why electric shoes of course! They're all the rage!

What is wrong with "what is now popular?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZuMako8_Momo

The word order is switched, which Duolingo does not like.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Erated8

I'd Personally Interpret That As Asking What Something Called "Now Popular" Is, Or Potentially (Likely With A Comma After The 'What') As Asking (Somewhat Sarcastically/Rhetorically) If Something Called "Now" Is Popular.

How can I say "What is the popular clock?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZuMako8_Momo

Qual è l'orologio popolare?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Erated8

What Is A Popular Clock?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/interpreter15

Does "right now" work?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZuMako8_Momo

That would be «proprio adesso».

    'What is now popular' should be accepted too.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Isaacmolin245357

    So can I also say "Che cos'è poplare ora?"


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SchubertNo21

    Yes. or Che Cos'è popolare adesso?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sperac01

    How would you say "what is a popular time?"


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Erated8

    You'd Have To Explain To Me What A "Popular Time" Is For Me To Translate It.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pira423739

    What is popular nowadays? is not accepted..... after all Duolingo is a machine with severe limitations.


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

    I translated "ora" as "time" and wrote, "What time is popular?" (e.g. for dinner, or to go to a museum). It was marked wrong, but could that be a correct translation?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Erated8

    I Feel "Nowadays" Would Also Work As An Accurate Translation In This Circumstance, Can Anybody Confirm?


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

    'what is now popular' should be correct too!
