"You mix the sugar and the egg."
Translation:Unite lo zucchero e l'uovo.
Present tense: Unisco, unisci, unisce, uniamo, unite, uniscono
Past participles: unito, unita, uniti, unite.
I have the same question. If it is a different tense, why? It seems the same structure as the present tense we've used to this point...
Because in Italian to give instructions it's common to use the imperative form
I don't think i was introduced to any word for mix when i did this lesson, but now I'm strengthening the task, it's the first question!
Sounds fair. You're strengthening your knowledge of the topic by picking up words you missed out on first time around :)
if it's not imperative, Mischia, then Si mischia should also be accepted in lieu of mischi.
Because "mescolate" is second person plural and "tu" is the pronoun that stands for second person singular
Why Duo does help with the word 'mescoli' and then says it is the wrong WORD, you have to write 'unite' ? Strange behavior.
Unite is the conjugation for both the present indicative and the imperative, though a better interpretation here might be present indicative because the subject is clearly stated, You mix...
Uniti works better as an adjective or a participle: Gli Stati Uniti, vi abbiamo uniti...
Please why is this not a correct choice? "Tu mescoli lo zucchero ed l'uovo."
"ed" is used to mean "and,'" typically, before a vowel. That's not the case before "l'uovo."
OMG it's the little things that get me all the time. Many thanks for pointing that out. Ciao
Instead of "tu" would be correct "voi mescolate" - "unire" however sounds strange, "mescolare" is the best choice with ingredients.
No, as mescoli is the verb. The i-ending indicates the tu (vs io, lui, etc)
Unire - to join, add to, combine; I too don't see why "Mescoli lo zucchero con l'uovo" wouldn’t be acceptable.
There should be a way to accept sentences in different order as valid as a way to help people with dislexia
A little annoyed that the lesson tells me that "mix" is "mescolate" or "mescoli" yet marks me wrong and tells me it is "unite". I am not arguing that unite is correct, in fact I think it works better. But Duo teaches me something then marks me wrong for it.
