"The new boys have new shoes."
Translation:Nowi chłopcy mają nowe buty.
Why is it "nowi" for chłopcy and "nowe" for buty? A bit confused as theyre both masculine nouns. Something about being animate?
Could someone please explain to me why 'chłopcy' takes the adjective 'nowi' and not 'nowy'?
'Nowi' is for plural, while 'nowy' is singular (both forms masculine-personal).
Unfortunately the endings don't match with the noun, and i think that is what mislead you.
