Agreed. I had no idea what the Duo robot was trying to say when it said "ring"
Path is a noun, so would be der Weg. When it is not capitalised then it means away, off or gone.
I'm a German native and I just wondered about this pronunciation. Here's the discussion I'm coming from: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5888855$comment_id=5974069
Would anybody actually say 'my ring is gone' in English? I certainly wouldn't . 'My ring has gone' is much more natural.
I would say, "My ring is gone" over "My ring has gone". May I ask where you are from?
I agree, my ring has gone sounds like the ring got up and waljed away. To me anyway.
Both seem perfectly fine to me, and the distinction is totally neutralised in speech ("my ring's gone").
If one came home and found one's ring missing, one would definitely say "My ring is gone" rather than "has gone". "Has gone" would imply the thing has caused itself to go, as in "My son has gone to Wales."
Did you play the 'slow audio'? Still bad for me. The normal speed is okay.
Because there is no "nicht" in the sentence. Your sentence is "Mein Ring ist nicht da." Try to translate the sentences as literal as possible, BUT it should be still a valid sentence in both languages.
I assume "Mein Ring ist gegangen" isn't correct because that implies it went somewhere. Thinking about it, it is the English sentence that is unusual in using gone with is for something that's not there anymore.
i understand "my ring is away" , but i wouldn't say it. However, I remember when i was in school and a boy was absent, his friends used to say: "He is away."
The top hint for "weg" was "not there" but I was marked wrong. "Gone" wasn't even on the list! Why is "my ring is not there" wrong? I'm a bit confused..
The female voice for 'weg' (away/gone) is still wrong. With the long 'e', the voice speaks 'Weg' (Der Weg / The path) (Reported: 15.Mai 2017) Disclaimer: Native german speaker.
Would "My ring is off" be valid? As in, she voluntarily took it off her finger.
'is gone'???? Has gone, surely. Or has disappeard. Or is missing. Not is gone.
