I’m confused as to why I got an example wrong. The example was “un œdipien complexe” which the quiz labelled as an incorrect placement of the adjective. It is my understanding that œdipien is the noun and complexe is the adjective. None of these fall under the common exceptions nor s œdipien is not a proper noun, so I am confused as to why the proper order would be “un complexe œdipien.”
Un complexe = a complex (noun)
complexe de supériorité , d'infériorité, or Œdipien in this example
Œdipe (Œdipus) (noun) -----> œdipien ( adj.)
Hope this helps!
I made the same mistake. With complexe being both a noun and an adjective it's confusing to pair it with such an obscure adjective in œdipien. It doesn't seem appropriate for level A0. I'd rather encounter vocabulary that will be useful outside of mythology.
