Wouldn't the plural gender of ׳טעים׳ agree with that of ׳יין׳ ?
So it'd be ׳יינות טעימות׳?
yes, יין is masculine.
if יין is masculine then why is the plural יינות and not something like
Because it's one of the irregulars.
then if I see a new word,how will i know if its an irregular
Check a dictionary or wait for duolingo to correct you and then memorise it.
I totally agree! To me that'd sound better but in this sentence o don't understand why it has an ending like if it were masculine
I feel there is no need to use the plural of wine and beer in this situation. 'The wine is tasty' can indeed refer to a collection of wine. To me, it also seems like the most natural way to say this.
You would use it if you are in a wine tasting and you want to say that (all) the wines are tasty. Or if you're a waiter in a restaurant and someone asks you what's better - the wines or the beers.
Maybe it is implied that there are more than one kind of wine on the table?
I agree. I never heard of היינות before. I always used the sinigular
Greatfull for learning the pronounciation of this one! I didn' t know the vocal changed from ai to ei when making the word wine to wines!
why is the ending of wine masculine?
