what is the etymology of cal/cai ? Popular Latin was caballus, classical latin was equus. could cal be a contraction of caballus ? or has it another origin ?
Does the final "l" always become "i" in plural from?
not anymore. newer loan words don't show this behavior anymore but older words do, e.g. "miel" --> "miei". a similar effect occurs with final "n" for example in the word "spune" with the second person singular present indicative "spui"
The audio is wrong Duo :(
"Cai" not cal
I fall on a horse lol. :)
Get it? Cai means fall in Portuguese.
caí, cón tilde, tanto en español como en portugués.
