Le lion noire?
Why is it that noire applies to a masculine noun (lion)? It sounded like le lion noire in the reading, so I typed it in. I also have a screen capture. Can anyone explain why the noire here is correct?
Just remember to always report these errors you find. ;) Duolingo is awesome, but isn't perfect.
@CeluKiDort - I found it accepted le lion noire as an appropriate answer for a black lion. It should be le lion noir.
I agree, why then would Duolingo accept le lion noire? Shouldn't the noir be masculine since lion is a masculine noun?
Because of this fact that I had stated above. It's an exception to the rule.
I tried practicing my vocabulary again, and this time - "lion noir" appears without the "e"
Un lion noir (M/M), une lionne noire (F/F) : no exception to the rule here!
I think it should be "le lion noir". "noir" and "noire" have the same pronunciation.
