Hmm, this was a new word for me. When I hovered over the word (in gold), soil was the suggested translation. Then when I typed in "the soil", it was incorrect (correct being "the clay"). Is there any reason for that?

I just had the same result and I reported it.

Because the hover hint is incorrect and that hint hasn’t been corrected yet.

Is her pronuncation right? She seems to use a broad ch, here.

In poetry and myth and legend, we arise from the soil, and we return to the dust. In real life, your kids track dirt into the house after you've spent all day cleaning it.

"The dirt" was not accepted, but it said "the dust" would have been correct. Is there a difference between dirt and soil/dust that I don't get?
