Why is yeux the plural of eyes when the singular is œil?
How did the plural and singular become irregular? What's the etymology behind the two?
I again got tricked:
- for not adding "http(s)://" at the beginning of the link.
- because the link contains an ampersand
Link corrected. However, searching in Google the mentioned two words allowed already one to find the link. ;)
I love the fact that the 2 words are different. I have trouble pronouncing the word "oeil" so I use "yeux" all the time. Of course, assuming there are multiple eyes.
How do you pronounce œil?
Also - if you have the number pad, you can make the œ ligature with Alt + 0156.
