I could imagine it saying "Gli uomini dormono nello zucchero." (The men sleep in the sugar.) or "Gli uomini nuotano nello zucchero." (The men swim in the sugar.) In the Duolingo world all kinds of amazing things can happen.

    I suspect they use words we have been introduced to previously to illustrate usages. I think zucchero is the only word we know, so far, that starts with "z". Words starting with "z" are an exception to the il, i, la, le rules.

    One sentence ago it was "I ragazzi bevono l'acqua", and this one is "Gli uomini..." Both are plural and masculine, but when do you use each?

    October 31, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/potatoeglot

    Use "gli" if the succeeding word begins with a vowel/z/s + consonant (e.g. gli uomini). Otherwise, "i" is used (e.g I ragazzi).

    November 8, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/connord12

    It's gli because gli umoini singular is l'uomo the l' makes it gli. It's I for ragazzi because I ragazzi singular is il ragazzo. When it has il has the definite article you use "I" but when the definite article is " l' " you use gli. At least I'm 99% sure.

    November 4, 2014

    https://www.duolingo.com/JandresV

    When the singular definite article is Lo, the plural is "gli". Both are used before masculine nouns beginning with s + consonant or z. When the singular definite article is Il, the plural is "i". They are used before masculine nouns beginning with all other consonants. When the singular definite article is L', the plural is "gli". They are used before masculine nouns beginning with a vowel.

    July 3, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/AruthaBorr

    I'm a baker and frequently write in flour. The idea of writing in sugar didn't sound strange to me =)

    July 7, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/GlenM

    I thought of bakers writing in icing, which is basically sugar, on cakes. Regardless, I must say that I don't understand why so many people gripe about this sentence. It's only a translation exercise for heaven's sake! And often, a bit of nonsense (which this is not) will stick in our memories better. Thanks for your comment Arutha.

    Why do they continue to write in the sugar?

    https://www.duolingo.com/MikeDiCara

    I heard it as the men write the sugar "lo zucchero" not writing in it "nello zucchero." I was obviously wrong, but it almost makes sense that way if you picture them spelling out words on top of a cake with sugar.

    May 3, 2016

    https://www.duolingo.com/alexjn10

    Would this be considered incorrect? "gli ragazzi scrivono nello zucchero" instead of "i ragazzi scrivono nello zucchero"

    May 15, 2016

    https://www.duolingo.com/NoeBerengena

    Gli would NOT be correct because it is the plural of "lo" which is used as the definite article before male nouns that begin with s and a consonant. Such as studente, squalo = gli studenti, gli squali. Or male nouns that begin with a z such as zio = gli zii. A noun that begins with an R does not fit this rule. Il ragazzo = i ragazzi. Also, another example when gli would be used is gli Americani.

    June 2, 2016

    https://www.duolingo.com/MagentaAbalone

    Maybe they meant to say "Gli uomini scrivono nello giornale/libro." So far in this lesson there has also been water in the sugar. Eating and drinking aren't messed up so maybe sugar ended up in the wrong list somewhere.

    They spilled the sugar and now they are using their fingers to write words back and forth so as not to attract the attention of the women in the next room who will undoubtedly complain and clean it up. Why? Is the room bugged? Do they need to pass information quietly? Or are they just being silly? Scroll up for a picture of a word written in sugar.

    September 20, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/GlenM

    I don't thinks so. Sugar doesn't provide a solid surface on which to write, but if you spread sugar out on a flat surface, such as a tray, you can trace letters in it.

    September 20, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/GeorgeHueb

    How could you distinguish between writing in sugar, as in sugar spread on a table; and writing in sugar, as in using sugar as the "ink" to write on a bare surface.

    If that isnt clear think of these things: Writing in sand on a beach, contrasted to writing with glue and colored sand on paper.

    September 20, 2018
