"Those women are beautiful."
Translation:O kadınlar güzeller.
"Those women are beautiful." Translation: O kadınlar güzeller.
When those is a determiner/pronoun, we don't say şunlar, just şu.
Those women: şu kadınlar Those are women: şunlar kadın(lar)
And "those are beautiful women" = "şunlar güzel kadın(lar)? Isn't it?
Miss said no
Laura, have a look there, about demonstartive adjectives and pronouns: https://www.turkishexplained.com/demonstrative.htm, very easy.
So why is "Su kadinlar guzel" (my computer doesn't have accents) wrong?
Şu kadınlar güzel. - Those women are beautiful. - Correct.
Şu - "those" - adjective. When used as a (demonstrative) pronoun.
Su - "water" - (noun)

I use it all the time. If you use a smartphone then I cannot help you. Ask a question in "discuss" for the app.
You have spelt it correctly then you are correct. I don't know why Duo declined your given answer?
Yep, it also means "that" (or in this case, those) :)
Those women: Şu kadınlar
Those are women: Şunlar kadın(lar)
Demonstrative pronouns - "İşaret zamirleri."
Usage of the pronoun "O."
The pronoun "o" is used for both personal (he, she, it) & as a demonstrative pronoun. The demonstrative pronoun "o" (that) has the same meaning as "şu."
"That" is the (singular) to "those" (plural) - "şu(n) + lar."
Şunlar - These, those.
Şu kadınlar güzel - Those women are beautiful. - Try this answer when you revise?
You must write your answer in Turkish characters as the "robot" computer won't recognise your spelling. It will only recognise the meaning of correctly written Turkish words.
Yeliperna, there is no teacher/s here! Only contributors or advanced learners who answer the questions (if they want and have the time). The best "teacher", the best mean to learn grammar rules is, first, to read the TIPS before starting each skill/lesson, then to read all the comments. And then, to look for websites on each topic. There are many.
WeirdoNextDoor, i found that website about demonstrative adjective and pronoun: https://elon.io/learn-turkish/lesson/demonstratives. Look specially at the last table about "o"="those"
Michel, i am sorry, it is not a question of trusting or not Duo. if you read all the comments for each lesson, you always find a grammar explanation. Duo gives us sentences without precising the context, so, we have to take how they are. "O" means that the women are more distant than "Şu", here demonstrative adjective before a noun. "Şunlar" is a demonstrative pronoun before a verb, as suject. Selcen's comment above is very clear.
Anis, if you read the comments above, you will understand that it is correct. Take time, please. Thanks. I always find the answer to my questions in the comments, since the beginning. Also reading the TIPS, before starting each skill/lesson. You can also find websites about each topic. There are many.
NCyeh, first of all i read ALL the comments for each sentence. Then i go on Duolingo Turkish Grammar Portal, (in construction) or look for grammar websites about each topic (ex: locative case in Turkish grammar). There are so many. My favorite teachers are: FC LangMedia, Yasin Durak, both in English and Ali Yilmaz (in Turkish). Very clear and helpfull.
it is not ,,guzelim'' because the basic adjective is ,,guzel'' and the termination for plurar third person is ,,ler''. But you can also let the word how is it ,,guzel'' , because you can use the singural instead of plural.
,,guzelim'' means ,,i am beautiful'' .... guzel+im(1st person singular)
