I miss 'are'
Yeah that's weird, as you need the helping verb in English.
I mean technically if six are swimming, five are also swimming
Shisha dagim sokhim, lo khamisha.
Could this also be "Six swimming fish..."?
IS THE ASNSWER......~SIX FISHES ARE SWIMMING, NOT FIVE_ NOT CORRECT ?
The problem with your answer is the "fishes" becasue the plural of fish is the same "fish". But you can say "Six fish are swimming, not five".
THANK YOU SO MUCH.....I THOUGHT THE PLURAL OF "FISH" WAS "FISHES"
It can be,
If they're different kinds.
"Fishes" is also an older plural, as in the miracle of the loaves and fishes.
Fishes is used when you're talking about multiple kinds of fish. Fish is used when you're talking about multiple fish of the same kind.
I have plural male fish swimming and numbers that seem to be female . Would שיש דגות שוחות לא חמיש work?
Masculine numbers take what looks like the feminine form so, "שישה" is masculine and "שש" is feminine.
