I really like this sentence! So far, it is the shortest one that sounds the most Irish to me. Nice choice, duolingo!
For those who can't relate directly: I think of my two daughters and little brings me more joy than this exercise.
She could be like her father in a way other than in physical appearance — perhaps they’re both generous to a fault.
Was the 'h' placed in front of athair to avoid two consecutive vowels? If so, do you usually add an 'h' to the second word in such situations or is it a case-by-case situation?
I've heard the phenomenon called "h-prothesis". AFAIK, it happens here, not because of consecutive vowel sounds, but because the feminine possessive pronoun "her" found in a, lena, etc, prothesizes... er, adds on that "h" at the beginning. "Like his father" would be Cosúil lena athair because the masculine doesn't cause h-prothesis.
This is yet another question that asks to type what I hear but plays not audio
Sometimes that happens to me when my internet is running a little slow. If I wait a short while, the audio will eventually load, and I tend to have fewer problems in a few minutes. That's not to say that this is what is happening to you; it's just a suggestion.
This particular sentence doesn't have any audio, but Duolingo is still presenting it for "Type what your hear" exercises - it's not a connection speed issue, it's a mixup that occurred when the new audio recordings replaced the old set of recordings.
The issue has been reported to the engineering staff at Duolingo, and it is being looked into.
