"Le camicie dell'uomo sono grandi."

January 3, 2013


Was this a trick question? Doesn't the adjective have to adhere to the noun it describes (the shirt, female) rather than the man, and isn't "i" the plural form for masculine nouns?

it does. Le camicie is femenin plural. Grande is the singular form, so it should be plural: grandi. words on -e get -i in plural in both masculin and feminin.

I see, adjectives ending in -e always get -i in plural form, and the rule is just that the genders must match between noun and adjective. I was incorrectly looking at matching the endings. Thanks.

Is it understood that this actually means "too big"?

I thought that "grosso" was too big. I could be wrong, though.
