  5. "Two thousand dollars"

"Two thousand dollars"

Translation:Дві тисячі доларів

November 10, 2015



Why is this not Дві тисячі доларі?

I thought numbers that end in 2, 3, 4 were nominative plural, and all others except 1 were genitive plural.

EDIT: Never mind, didn't think this through. Of course 2000 ends in a zero.


Actually the last number determines if it's і/и or ів. And two thousand ends in thousand so it would get genitive because it's greater than 4


Well, it does work with "нуль доларів", but I guess it's a coincidence, should be just because it's "тисяча доларів", kind of ends in "thousand" as grey236 said :)


Shouldn't it be "два", instead of "дві", though? I thought "dollars" was masculine, and "hryvnias" would require the opposite, because it was feminine?


The word "thousand" is feminine, and there are two of the thousands, not dollars, so дві matches the gender of "thousand".
