According to Chambers competition:= ...contest... and contest:=...competition... so why is compétition=contest not accepted? As a native English speaker I am unaware of any difference between these two nouns in this context
What's the difference amongst "compétition" and "concurrence" in French? Is it used on a certain context?
"compétition" can be used to mean "concurrence". However, "competition" most specifically refers to a sport or game contest, while "concurrence" refers to a kind of rivalry between people/organisations
To quote the moderator/trice Sitesurf:
- Duolingo always favors identical or "transparent" words from one language to the other. [...] That is Duo's view on vocabulary: picking the low-hanging fruit first is easier for learners. Therefore, don't look for synonyms when you get a transparent word.
competition (Eng) = compétition (Fr)
i got it right but i need to know if "perdus", "perdues", could be correct?
