if "coffee cup" has to have a space, then "tea cup" should also be accepted as two words …

She was ordering in Danish but accidentally happened to enunciate too much. If this happens to you, you can try drinking a pint of Gammeldansk and ordering again. Now you will have perfect Danish pronunciation.

Shouldn't mug be accepted?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/petrenko

Mug is 'en krus'

Mug is actually "Et krus"

Sure! A "hund" is an animal just like a dog is a "dyr." But even in English, isn't "coffee cup" a little more specific than "mug?" :)

Kaffekop should be translated as coffee cup; I'm certain you could argue that mug should be accepted, but to me it sounds as a strange choice of words.
