No, Duolingo is trying to brainwash you into getting 13 cats. But are you sure 13 is enough? How about 14.
We're worrying about global warming and overpopulation, but we should reallu be looking at these people who have cat addictions!
I knew a girl with 13 cats once. I met her in a coffee shop in Austin. She said she took a road trip across the South with her 13 cats in her beat up '70's Dodge. she was writing a coffee table book - not surprisingly, she was also single!
What if you're traveling in Italy, meet somebody cute, and the first thing they say is "Ho tredici gatti". Knowing what they said might be useful in determining whether to pursue a relationship with them. Just maybe. ;)
You have a point Margarita. I suppose though, that it's akin to the different way that English speakers pronounce vowels in different areas. For example, Canadians will pronounce 'house' hohse rather than howse.
Thanks for the reply Glen and yes, I agree. However, I was marked wrong for putting gatte (female cats, according to my dictionary). Perhaps both gatti and gatte should be accepted?
Yes, you're quite right. 'Gatte' is the plural of 'gatta' so I don't see a problem with that. Next time it comes up mark the block that says 'My answer should be accepted' and see what happens.
I have to remark on how pleasant it is for two people of the opposite sex to agree so early in the morning (It's about 7 a.m. here)!
Thanks Glen. I did mark the ´My answer should be accepted´ too. So we´ll see what happens. It is nice to agree as you say, but it is 5:10 on Sunday evening here. Not quite so early in the morning. :-)
That sounds like Australia to me (or possibly our cousins across the pond in NZ). I'm in South Africa. Enjoy your evening Margarita and thanks for the chat ;)
Hi Charles, thanks for the reply. My point is that I heard ¨gatte¨ and wrote ¨gatte¨ and it was marked as wrong. I did write what I heard.
