"Los calcetines son nuestros."
Translation:The socks are ours.
yeah, I'm not sure why it says 'sox' on hover help but won't count 'sox' as correct.
Yeah my friend does it too and says it's just one of the glitches you have to remember. I hope I'm being helpful
emeliaflor- because it's a course here- you have to choose the correct answer.
For me "sox" looks jargonish. I wanted to write "socks" and then got perplexed with this dictionary hint (with no other correct options). \ Lost first hart in perfectly answered lesson... I know they wanted us to break of the habit of peeking in the dictionary when its unnecessary ;))
They probably put that simply for the translation of the Baseball Team.
It says only 'sox'. I was confused so I just typed 'The sox are mine' but it said it was wrong.
Well, it would actually be wrong on two accounts then. Easy mistake though.
It actually says sox when you hover over it, but, when you put sox its marked as incorrect. Im lost
brandy- because this is a choice of answer, come on it was like that at school.
Somebody needs to donate clothes do the Duolingo people, apparently they have to share boots and socks a lot.
I was going to write "socks" but the hover help showed "sox", so I decided "whatever lady wishes" and .............................................FAIL :P :):)
It is the "They" form of the verb "to be." So yes it means literally "they are"
No. Stockings are more like leggings or pantyhose. Socks are socks, no other word (in American English) for them
American English might consider stockings to be more like pantyhose or tights. British English seems to consider them as one and the same.
British English speaker, I'd agree that stockings is more like what we'd describe as pantyhose (tights).
Socks and stockings are completely different in English English. Socks cover one's feet and ankles and are elasticated, and may cover the knee in some instances. Stockings reach the top of the inner thigh and are held up by suspenders - they are mostly worn by women although I'm led to believe that some gentlemen wear them on occasion ;-)
Because the word "sox" doesn't exist in English. The correct spelling of the clothing article that covers your feet before shoes, is: socks.
because there's no mention of THESE in this sentence. these-=estos, it would be : estos (demonstrative) calcetines son nuestros. los= the
i did not know how to spell it becuase it was the first time i had encountered the word. thats not exactly fair.
This is kinda funny as no one talks like this in Spanish: saying los calcetines son nuestros is the equivalent of proclaiming that we've conquered/taken over the socks...
Sox is the hover and I ended up misspelling it because of the hover and got it wrong.... wth?
I wrote sox in the answer to be a smartass about the mistake they made. I paid the price in the loss of my bonus lingots at the end...
Hey DuoLingo- Please make sure you provide correct spelling for translation words in English. Calcetines means socks, not "sox".
it was written sox under the new vocabulary. in English it is spelled socks!!!
That was realy dumb the thing said sox and i lost a heart. that is frustrating
I just about said, "The socks ate ours." That is a completely different sentence with the change of only one letter.
Well maybe there are two stores that order socks, and the shipments come in. Then when the delivery man asks who to give the socks to, both stores shout, "The socks are ours!" That problem is solved. I still don't get the sox problem though..
Why "los toros son animales" must be "Bulls are animals" then "los calcetines son nuestros" can't be "socks are ours"
I think I don't know any people who collectively own socks. They are almost exclusively owned by individuals. Just like there is no 'our underwear'
the creators are like WE NEED SOCKS HA SO WE WILL HAVE ALL OF THEM<h1>thesocksareours.</h1>
Every time i speak the correct response,, it fails to recognize my answer.
I was marked wrong, said the correct answer was stockings, but when I touched the word calcetines , it only gives socks as the answer
