"The shark eats."
Translation:Lo squalo mangia.
You use "lo" when the masculine noun begins with the letter "z" or with the letter "s" + a consonant. Ex: "Lo zucchero", "Lo squalo".
"Gli" is only used at the beginning of a sentence. It has the same function as "i," in that it is the plural masculine article "the."
I looked under the word for a hint and it said only "squalo" Why does Duolingo gotta do me like that and put "pescecane"? :(
I love the word squalo - sounds so cute - what harm could one possibly do you?
I think, unless I'm mistaken, 'the sharks eat' would be 'gli squali mangiano'.
Lo squalo is singular, and mangia refers to 'it'. Gli squali is the plural, and mangiano refers to 'they'.
Okaaaay...i wasnt ready for pescecane...and is not even in rhe category...geez.
I used lo squalo mangia and it marked me incorrect, saying the correct word was "pescecane"
Guess there are two words for this? Why is the above incorrect?
Can anyone explain,what the shark eats or likes to eat.I think they like to eat owls like DUO who loves to eat insects like us,right?
If squallo and pescacane are synonyms you shouldn't be counted wrong for one or the other unless its a listening comprension format question
No, because "Lo" is only used for masculine singular nouns. When it is converted to plural "Lo" becomes "Gli". I hope this info helped. ;)
You use lo whenever the object is male and begins with the letter "z" or s+ a consonant. (lo zucchero, lo squalo)
I know I'm like 3 years late replying to this comment but 'lo' is used before words that start with the letter 'z' or s + a consonant (e.g. lo zucchero - the sugar, lo squalo - the shark). I hope this helps!
