I hear the robot lady say passáno, but the right pronunciation is pássano
And two years on she's still saying it wrong!
The voice says "passAno". I thought, for the third person plural we should always stress on the third vowel counting from the end: "pAssano". Please, native speakers, give a comment on it!
Wow! 3 years later and it's STILL not fixed! Do they ever listen to the audio. So much of it is of poor sound quality and almost incomprehensible to hear as the speaker mumbles or trails off, forcing you to guess the words.
I am native and can say that you are perfectly right. You must put the accent on the first A. The correct pronounce sounds like "pAssano"
You can. If you are a poet, you can say "l'ore". "L'ore non passavan mai".
no. l' is masculine singular and the complete opposite of le, and the plural for l' is gli
l' is used both for masculine and feminine singulars before a vowel. In plural these become:
- masculine: l' => gli
- feminine: l' => le
You can. If you are a poet, you can say "l'ore". "L'ore non passavan mai"
That's what I was thinking. In English, we usually say the larger thing first, in every example that I can think of, and hours are larger than minutes.
The way Duo has it doesn't sound wrong in English, but it sounds a little awkward.
I do not understand your question.... Because «il minuto» = "the minute" and «i minuti» = "the minutes."
In english we say 'hours and minutes' not 'minutes and hours' so this be accepted.
Why can't it be the minutes and the hours they pass? Because passano is the loro
Because pronouns like "they" replace nouns. If you want to use "they," you would say "They pass." If you want to use the nouns, you would say "The minutes and the hours pass." You can't use both "the minutes and the hours" and "they."
That makes no sense. The loro form is used because there are multiple subjects (hours and minutes), I suppose
ZuMako8_Momo, Your translation is not wrong since we have no context. In the daily speech if the sense of a phrase cannot be understood from the context the pronoun should be added.
there is an error in what she says; it's pàssano, not passàno.
still the same rap. Really no use of reporting anything since nothing happens.: our all time fave, USA vs usa.
