"Rosa", like "blu", is invariable, i.e. doesn't matter whether the noun is singular/plural/masc/fem.
Found the answer here: http://italian.about.com/b/2005/10/24/italian-colors.htm
I wrote "I pantaloni rosa non sono i miei" and lost a heart :( Is this actually wrong?
It has a slightly differente nuance, not translatable in English, you can report it.
"non sono i miei" sounds like yours are somewhere else, or that you were looking for them "non sono miei" is more generic.
I also noticed the article is sometimes left out before miei, suo or tuo. If it slightly changes the meaning of sentences, is it explained somewhere with some examples? I don't think it's covered in DL so far.
Yes it can be. Depends on the context. It can also be your family, or someone else's.
Like in "Natale con i tuoi, Pasqua con chi vuoi".
no, it just means "my [plural-noun] - my parents would be "i miei genitori"
What is the difference between red and pink? Is it just the extra 's'? Is it a pronunciation?
Yes, both spelling and pronunciation.
- red > rosso / rossa
- pink > rosa
They sound the same to me in the recordings. Any hints? Also, is pink > roso as well? and rose/rosi for plural?
why in one question if you say red it should be pink and other when you type pink it should be red , in both cases you loose mark i mean heart!!!??
You're apparently confused by the similarity between pink and red in Italian: pink > rosa Red > rosso
The difference between red and pink is that pink is red and white mixed together. ;-)
I still don't really understand the difference between Gli and I. It's gli uomini, but i pantaloni, why?
Gli is used before plural words starting with vowels or s+consonant, ps, z, y, gn, x, and a few foreign words. I is used before most consonants.
Need my pronunciation corrected! The program almost never approves of the way I speak Italian but won't/can't tell me what is wrong!!!
If you aren't using a headset, that helps a lot. I don't, and tend to get really frustrated by how many times I have to try an expression. If it actually is your pronunciation, then you should try listening carefully to the speaker over and over again while trying to imitate her. Break her syllables down and repeat them. Sometimes it's not easy, but it makes a huge difference.
In another question, rosa was either pink or rose. In this question, rose pants is not accepted.
So, are 'pantaloni' always plural? (like in English?) I thought that latin languages (like French) would say 'one pant' (as in, one pair). I guess I know the answer (yes, plural) but that surprises me...
There is actually a difference in pronunciation for all double vs single consonants. Very hard for a non native speaker to here but to an Italian it's very clear. Simply put, you "linger" just a bit on the double. Say "buon anno" to someone but pronounce it "ano" and you will get a funny look.
