"complimentaient" - I would have thought that "compliment..." would agree with "sa peau", singular, and not "des lèvres" and "de magnifiques cheveux", plural. Is it because "complimentaient" is in a que clause with lèvres and cheveux?
Dictation exercise B1
This an inversion of verb and subject often used in literary text like this tale -
complimentaient agrees with everything that comes after - les lèvres et les cheveux.
Bonne Continuation !
I had a similar question about why "que" was used instead of "qui" since what follows is a verb, not a noun, but now I see why!
