Ive got a feeling I'll be dead before I reach section 12!
Great start to the day . I really have cheered up .
Duo has always been a philosopher.
Any pointers on "Ognuna" vs "Tutti" usage in general?
Ognuna is more like "each one", whereas "tutti" is everyone.
Why is "They all die sooner or later." incorrect?
I think that may be a bit too specific for this sentence. "Tutti" means "all", so it means a general "everybody" and not any specific people.
That, or I completely don't know what I'm talking about and it should be accepted. ;)
It's just not graceful in English without they.
I said 'they all die' too - 'all die' in English doesn't really make sense, it needs the 'they'. It sounds a bit poetic but you definitely wouldn't use that kind of sentence every day (unless you're a poet I guess) so I've reported it
Well you don't use the word "all" of course, but you would use the word "everybody". In Italian these are the same.
Except in Italian "everybody" is plural and "everything" is singular, oddly enough.
It may not be the idiomatic answer Duo want, but I believe it is correct. 'muoiono' is 'they die' and 'tutte' is 'all'. Report it, I did.
But you really didn't have to remind us Duo...
How do we know that this is about people. Can tutti not refer to animals also? Then "everyone dies" would be a bad translation.
You make a good point.
Why not "Everything dies....."?
is prima o poi a common idiom? So can I say "prima o poi, devi finire i tuoi compiti" (sooner or later you need to finish your homework)
Yep. You can also say "presto o tardi". Same thing.
Duo keepin it real
Anche un gufetto chiamato Duo.
Duolingo please don't use sentences about death. They bring forth sad memories.
Tutti muoiono says everybody as a plural name, they used dies that is the 3rd singular person as he,she i do not agree
Why not; Sooner or later everyone dies? This should be accepted.
Thank you Duolingo, very cool.
Why not 'everything dies sooner or later'?
