Sometimes she wears the hat, sometimes I wear the hat- therefore it's our hat. :)
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?
No difference (or, very little difference) in the way they're pronounced. But, remember that the pronoun has to agree with the plurality of the noun. So it's "notre chapeau" and "nos chapeaux", but not "notre chapeaux".
agree with you, especially since our hats makes more sense than "our hat" people dont share hats
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.
"Notre" is for singular nouns and "nos" for plural. "Notre chat", but "nos chats".
Thanks for that about "Notre and Nos" It's what I guessed but nice to have confirmation!
Is there a difference between hat and cap? I thought they were interchangeable.
Is there somwhere that hives a nice table of the conjugations of these possessives? Getting most right nut just guessing really!
le chapeau = hat
la casquette = cap
All caps are hats but not all hats are caps.
The words are different both in French and English. Duo wants to make sure you know that.

In English, there can be a very large difference. A cap is just one of the many, many types of hat that exist in the world.
