Is there a difference in how the singular and plural versions of hat are pronounced? Usually when the singular and plural versions of a word sound the same to me, I guess which they want based on whether the item is owned by one person, or by more than one. This time it didn't work. I guessed plural, and it was a single hat owned by more than one person. How can I be sure which is right?
True, but they may have a hat in common such as a uniform hat. People may well believe that their uniform hat is superior to the hat of another uniform style.
If so they might say Notre chapeau est bon. Over the years I have worn several uniforms. I can tell you that most distinguishing feature of each, in terms of comfort, was the hat. I'm sure I have said something along the lines of our hat is better during that period.
