Now the pasta packages make sense!
I know, right? Where I am, it's 50/50 as to whether they're called farfalle or bow ties. I always thought it had something to do with farfel.
I know right! I saw the word and though immediately of the pasta
The butter flies??
It would be good pasta if it was made with butter and shaped like flies !
No but the burro (donkey) does so
how do you say "farfalle" in singular?
pretty little butterflies!
Yeah, but the Romance language words sound so much prettier: farfalla, mariposa, papillon...whereas English is stuck with "butterfly."
It should be "La burromosca" to match the translation butterfly! hehehe
Why doesn't Le farfalle also translate as "butterflies' as well as "the butterflies"?
could someone explain the difference between (pardon spelling)
Where do I use them, I think they are all plurals of 'the' Thanks (:
I and gli plural masculin, le plural feminin. When you find the article lo its plural is gli and i it's for il, le for la
These links should tell you all you need to know:
Whats the difference between farfalla and papillon!?
I think papillon is a bow tie or cravate, and they borrowed the French word for butterfly to describe it.
Papillon is referring to a piece of men's accessory - the thing they sometimes wear instead of a tie
Whats the difference betweem la el and gli i
Pour pronunciation,sounds like she has an S in her last word.
farfalle is also the name for a specific shape of pasta, in English often referred to as bow-ties. Since this is the food section, what is one supposed to think?
In English we call them bow-ties, but they also resemble butterflies, after which they are named.
It seems like a glitch that Duo gave you this question while you were specifically covering food.
I was marked wrong because I did not capitalize the definite article "the" in my response. The correct answer is incorrect, Duolingo!
Farfalle is called bowtie pasta, and I het into fights over whether it is nowtie or butterfly. Now I can tell them this very simply.
I live in the USA, and I've seen it both ways, farfalle vs bow tie. It depends on the brand.
Here in Germany it's always "farfalle".
What is the difference between gli and le
"The butterflies" and "butterflies" is the same??
In terms of out-of-context vocabulary, no. In terms of in-context usage, that depends.
Something is going rong with anser i write it write and it seams like wrong answer
