Earlier I saw bel used for masculine beautiful. Can someone confirm if it is only used when beautiful precedes the noun. In this sentence it wasn't allowed.
When "beau" precedes a masculine noun starting with a vowel of a non-aspired H:
Thank you again for your help.
Why not "joli"?
This is easy: beau = beautiful
Joli can mean beautiful too, and 'chapeau' is gender neutral.
"joli" and "beautiful" are not interchangeable, and "un chapeau" is a masculine noun.
I thought it can be " Votre chapeau est joli "
Pretty ≠ Beautiful?
why can't i say vous instead of ton
Why can't I say vos chapeau?
votre chapeau = your hat = singular
vos chapeaux = your hats = plural
I love the rhyme in this one.
Shouldn't the second correct sentence be "Votre chapeau êtes beau"? "Est" is not correct verb agreement. Yes?
The conjugation of "être" has to agree with "chapeau" in this case, not "votre". Threfore " est " is used, not "êtes"
My Kindergarden French teacher to me (and the class) that "Beau" meant "Handsome" and "Belle" meant "Beautiful." I wrote "Votre chapeau est belle" and it was wrong. Is there a reason why she put it that way?
Yes, she was referring to people.
Ohhhhh... Thank you I should have guessed :)
Why is it ton chapeau est BEAU and not ton chapeau est BEL
"bel" is only used with nouns beginning with a vocal!
