French ACRE, same meaning. from Latin ACERBUS. I still have my very old Latin-French/French-Latin dictionary with me after more than 65 years !
Is this by any chance where English 'acrid' comes from?
Romanian "acerb" :-)
I have heard about Acerbus before, now it makes more sense! Thank you!
sorry but acre in romanian and in french comes from latin acusativ acrem from nominative acris while latin acerbus gave french acerbe . Now acris and acerbus have the same root.
How do we know here that "sunt" means "they are"? Why can it not mean "I am" in this case?
Because of the form of the adjective.
Sunt ud și acru. - I am wet and sour. (masculine)
Sunt udă și acră. - I am wet and sour. (feminine)
Sunt uzi și acri. (3rd person, plural, masculine)
Sunt ude și acre. (3rd person, plural, feminine)
Sunt uzi și acri (with only one i at the end of acri). ;)
you are right... sorry, it has slipped me
Thank you for the clarification! :)
Thank you so much! :)
And also it can be Are they or am i too
