Duolingo gets meta.

September 1, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/Melaninja

What does that mean? What is meta?

July 16, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Johnlrbrock

Anything that refers to itself. My favorite example is the information about files on a computer. They are data about data, and therefore they are called Metadata

August 25, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Ralphkessler

Meta is Attic Greek for with or after or among etc- hence, metaphysics can mean with physics or after physics. In Old German meta became miti & so now mit is with in Modern German and with in English. In 20th century logic meta referred to information hierarchically above the information seen or studied.

Every time i listen the word "domanda" i think like if it is a command... It sounds rude!

April 24, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Manitari

Domanda means question, but also means request, application, demand

June 16, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Owlspotting

Could it also be trsnslated as "Where are the demands?"

April 22, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Punkmom

It does sound that way to our English-speaking ears! But don't get hung up on that, because in Italian it's a neutral word like our "question."

May 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/sherman93

Yeah, it comes from word demand, and it makes sense, questions demand answers..

August 8, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/wildflamer17

It sounds like demand, so once I put request. Got it wrong though - I'd stick to using the word question.

what is the difference between "dove" and "dov'è"?

December 14, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/biomiss

"dove" means "where". If you want to say 'where are girls' you would say 'dove sono ragazze', but in a sentence where you use third singular form, like 'where is the girl', you would say ' dove è la ragazza'. As you may have noticed Italians don't like having 2 vowels next to each other in a separate words, so they came up with shorter form 'dov'è = dove è', which means 'where is'. I hope it's helpful :)

December 15, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/MichaelThe16

It is the short form of the grammar, ie like in English "would've" or "would have".

Whats the difference between I and LE? why le demande and not i demande?

February 19, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/Katie_C.

"I" is used before plural masculine nouns, while "le" is used before plural feminine nouns. The noun here is "domanda", which is feminine. So, la domanda becomes le domande

why not "where are the applications?"

July 23, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/OneSizeFitsAll

I believe this would be completely acceptable, but Duolingo can't possibly program the site to accept all the possible translations. If you ever do it again, you might want to click the 'report a problem' box and select 'my answer should be accepted'.

October 4, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/Gardenhoser

I thought the other question said, "gli". This one says "le".

July 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/biomiss

The word is 'domanda', so you can assume that it is most likely feminine word, so you'd rather say 'la domanda' and 'le domande'. Anyway they use 'gli' preposition only for masculine plural words starting with a vowel such as 'gli amici'.

May 14, 2017

the verb "essere" is an exception, uses "sono" for both "io sono" and "loro sono"
I am = io sono
you are = tu sei
he/she is = lui/lei è
we are = noi siamo
you are = voi siete
they are = loro sono

Do Italians generally speak very quickly, or is it just Duolingo testing us and our hearing?

April 4, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Lannew713

I don't think the speed at which Duolingo talks at is fast. What is happening is you are listening to a language that is not your first, which may cause a short time period of a lag while your brain translates what was just said into English. If you were to say "Where are the questions?" To a native Italian speaker, they might think you were talking fast. Just my thoughts!

April 4, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Hector290697

Between Italian and French, now I'm curious as to which Romance language is the first/oldest after Latin became a dead language. My point is does French borrow vocab from Italian or the other way around or a bit of both? France borders Italy so that's what got me thinking.

"Dove le domande?" = Where the questions? You need the verb essere: either "Dov'è la domanda?" (Where is the question?) or "Dove sono le domande?" (Where are the questions?) The difference between "dove" and "dov'è" is explained in a post by biomiss above. Post is #26, if you count all the responses.

When do you use "dove" and when do you use "dov e" ?

April 30, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/Lannew713

"Dove" is used when the following word does not start with a vowel. In the sentence up above, the phrase is "dove sono" and you can see how "sono" starts with a consonant. "Dove" is shortened to " dov' " when the next word, like "è," starts with a vowel. It is similar to the way English uses "a" or "an".
