Yes. All the words ending with consonant and with a vowel with accent (and i and u even without accent) don't change at the plural. Also the foreign words don't change.
il gas, i gas
il caffè, i caffè
la verità, le verità
la crisi, le crisi
la gru, le gru
l'hotel, gli hotel
(Maybe there are some exceptions I can't think of now, but there mustn't be many. :D )
Thank you. You have saved me from the embarrassment of saying things like hoteli and caffi ! I feel like my brain must be almost full with trying to remember and I've only just started! I feel like a little kid who has learned to talk just enough to have a certain grasp of the rules, but not the exceptions. I have a feeling that my Italian is still going to sound like "I runned" and "I goed" for quite a while yet! :D
Dear Karen, what a lovely way to convey how we all progress to various levels at various trajectories. Yet, you would still be understood! Buona fortuna. 1Mar19
thanks for the explanation! I was ready to challenge this as it was deemed incorrect.
Can't you leave the article,since this is a generalization? My sentence "We clean cities" was not accpeted because the article was missing
As if wash is accepted when it's to do with your room and not with a city. What do you want from me with your bizarre logic Duolingo? :(
This speaking section is terrible! It doesnt pick up half of what you say, even if you yell. Hate to complain about a fun app but it's frustrating. Any comments?
Yes, try speaking to Duo's web version, but only on Chrome browser! You will like the difference ;)
