"Where are mom and Aunt Toma?"

Translation:Де мама і тітка Тома?

May 22, 2015



Are і and та interchangeable? Thanks! (I wrote down a cheat sheet for the keyboard. Why can't they make A in the same spot as A? Why F? I'm slow, but very cool so far! :D)

About keyboard: Old tradition of typewriters turned into computer era. You just need to get used with that.


There is, however, a keyboard layout named Ukrainian Homophonic Keyboard which does exactly that: http://tomasm.tk/images/ua-homophonic-keyboard_prop.png


Good to know. I wish I had this layout I have at work. Oh well, I'll just have to learn with the traditional Ukrai-English keyboard, for now.


Why does not accept "i" as correct with Latin alphabet? For some people is more suitable use the Russian and Latin alphabet togheter instead to use an Ukrainian keyboard. Duolingo should recognize the "i" whit the Latin alphabet when someone wants to write in Ukrainian. Thus, we can learn without inconveniences.


I thought when youre making lists of things you use a instead of i? Doesnt i put unnecessary emphasis on words when listing things?
