"Those are good names."
Translation:To jsou dobrá jména.
Why is it dobrá (feminine) and not 'dobré' which is neuter... since jména is a plural neuter of jméno?
Yes. Feminine singular = dobrá, plural = dobré Neuter singular = dobré, plural = dobrá Have a look at these interesting sites: http://www.locallingo.com/czech/grammar/ http://www.czech-in-prague.cz/load/pdf/czech_an_essential_grammar/3-1-0-9
Because that means "those names are good", which is slightly different.
A different syntactical structure. This has been discussed many many times here.
those are (good names)
(those names) are good
Can someone explain why "to" is correct here? Why is "those" in singular neutral? In my mind, "those" refers to "dobra jmena," a plural neutral noun. So, why wouldn't it be ta? Thank you!
Singular to is also used when identifying plural things or persons: Co to jsou? To jsou pomeranče. What are those? Those are oranges. (Page 86 in the grammar I mentioned above: http://www.czech-in-prague.cz/load/pdf/czech_an_essential_grammar/3-1-0-9 )
