They once were blind but now they see. They once were short but now they're long
You used the plural "pastas" here, instead of the singular "pasta". Why am I getting this? The verb is in plural here : "sind"
In English "pasta" is an uncountable noun, and "noodle" is a countable noun:
- The pasta is long
- The noodles are long
- The pieces of pasta are long
All nouns, regardless of their gender, take 'die' in their plural form: 'Der Mann' ('The man') -> 'Die Männer' ('The men') 'Die Maus' ('The mouse') -> 'Die Mäuse' ('The mice') 'Das Buch' ('The book') -> 'Die Bücher' ('The books')
How come somtime it translate nudeln like pasta and some time lika noodles?!
No, because pasta is not plural. You can say "The pasta is long" or "The noodles are long", but not "The pasta are long". Pasta is uncountable, while noodles are countable.
the verb, if it was singular, it would be ist. since it is plural, it is sind.
verb of be used as "sind", so nudeln is plural, why it rejects when I say "pastas" then
Because "pasta" in English is a mass noun (uncountable), not a count noun like die Nudel.
You can't have "one pasta, two pastas".
The normal speed audio says "Die Nudeln sind lang but the slow audio says "Die Uhren sind lang.
I wrote: The pastas are long. What is the problem with it? You don't say tha pasta in plural?
Correct. pasta is a mass noun (uncountable) and has no plural.
You can't have "one pasta" or "many pastas".
You can have more or less pasta.
It's like "water" or "rice".
It's essentially arbitrary. You have to look up the grammatical gender of a noun in a dictionary and memorise it.
I typed The Nuddles are Long and it said i was wrong that the correct answer was The Nuddles are long so how am I wrong
it said i was wrong that the correct answer was The Nuddles are long so
It would surprise me if the system gave you the incorrect word Nuddles as a correct answer.
Are you sure it wasn't noodles? (small N, two o's, one d)
