what's the rule for ele and ei? i know for voi, it ends in ti and noi ends in em for possessives and verbs, but whats the rule for ele and ei? what about tu and eu?
Some of it is gender.
eu = I
tu = you (sing.)
el = he
ea = she
noi = we
voi = you (pl.)
ei = they (masculine/mixed)
ele = they (feminine)
Romanian possessives are a little more complicated than in the western Romance languages:
This link explains Romanian verb conjugation patterns:
Ele is "they" when all of them are female. Ei is "they" when there is at least one male in the group, even if the rest are all female. If I'm talking about Chris, Becky, and Alice I would use Ei, because Chris is male. If I was just talking aboutq Becky and Alice, I would use Ele.
The second 'ele' is incorrect and should be removed, since it is not needed.
I agree with you that the second "ele" is not needed but, as a native speaker, I can't say that is also incorrect...
Yes, the sentence may sound robotic with 'ele' repeated, but it is certainly correct.
