One does not sound the "t" in the masculine form of the adjective. One does sound the "t" in the feminine form. But--in my limited experience--I have found that persons who live in the southeast of France, e.g., Toulon, often sound final vowels while northerners living in cities such as Lille do not prove so musical in their pronunciations. Still, one would expect to hear "uh" rather than "ay" for the end of "forte" if listening to one of the southern songbirds.
The audio is obviously computer generated, so I'm guessing it may take longer to fix the program than just rerecording the sentence.
ok was wondering if i was the only one who heard that- maybe im not so crazy after all
Forte can mean loud as well as strong! So 'the woman is loud' is still correct!
Well, Duolingo is a wonderful free service for us all. The bug has been reported already almost 30 times. There are thousands of corrections the programmers (volunteers? ) have on their "to do" list. I thank everyone who has contributed so much work to DuoLingo.
For your information, I reported it already a number of times, the first time was in July 2012...
Maybe we've been abandoned! But this mispronunciation reminds me of my bête noire, namely when people say, in English, 'this is not my forté.' That is definitely wrong and should be pronounced 'fort' as should 'forte' in this sentence.
Fortée? This is what she actually sais, and it is wrong. And people have been reporting this bug for years? They tell us to stop the clutter.. Oh, well. Perhaps they should read the comments on this page before they tell us to .. well ..
