Would you pronounce this 'almenAŭ' or 'almEnaŭ'?
(I realize you posted this like a month ago, but just in case you or somebody else still wants to know:) almEnaŭ. The -aŭ is a diphthong, so it's only one syllable. http://forvo.com/word/almena%C5%AD/#eo
Dankon! Gxi helpas min!
Almenaŭ sounds a lot like its equivalent in Spanish: "Al menos."
Same en la portugala "Ao menos"
It seems that things escalated quickly after https://www.duolingo.com/comment/8960046. Glad to hear that at least they slept after https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9805450 and https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9146476. Maybe that explains why https://www.duolingo.com/comment/10206045.
I can't understand what "at least" refers to:
at least THEY slept (and we didn't)
or THEY at least SLEPT (they didn't do anything else).
Are you asking about the English sentence - because to me the Esperanto sentence is clear. They at least got some sleep, even if they didn't sleep well.
I believe you answered the question. Thanks!
