Poor grammar!

I imagine that's because the code includes a string "Send a x to y" where x and y are randomly selected from the list of options in order to produce the relevant task. Not defending the grammar as such but it isn't hard to see how something like that can slip through.

    This seems to make a lot of sense. :thumbup:

    Exactly! Just like in other games you see "Pick up $n ${item}s", and forgets the case of n=1. Hence getting something like "Pick up 1 coins".

    Also, this can be tricky in English. We say "an hour" for example, because the "h" is silent.

    It's possible but then again, look at this!
