Don't you ever stick your sandals in your hat at the beach? Or am I the only one who does! :)
You think they use a random sentence generator? I though they were very imaginative.
I had "on" too, but that is wrong. 'on' is mostly su ( but than again not in" on the plate", there it is nel piatto.... big sigh!!!)
No it means in always. Something I feel we've all been having issues with is that Italians wouldnt say something is on a plate like we would. They would say something is in a plate, the same way we would say something is in a bowl or in a cup.
I guess it's all about context. From what I know, "nel" can mean on OR in, but you have to use the one that fits best, depending on the sentence.
Basically, nel is in+il. In has same same meaning in either Italian or English.
no, it always means "in". but different languages have a bit of a different perspective on certain things. for italians, the food is in the plate, the same way you would say it is in a bowl in english. same goes for languages like french or german. english is kind of an exception amongst european languages as it considers food to be ON the plate. so, the word always means "in", but sometimes you can not translate stuff litterally.
That must be one fabulous hat. A Sombrero, perhaps? A Fez would probably be too small for sandals, but you could always turn it upside down and put your sunglasses/pens in there.
That would depend on the size of the guy's feet. Trust me, my sandals wouldn't fit in a 10 gallon cowboy hat. :P
It was my understanding that when the subject was clear we did not need to use a personal pronoun before the noun to show possession: But i was wrong when I answered My sandals are in my hat. Yet, earlier, in another question, there was no personal pronoun used to show possession
How about "on the hat"? I know this program is free, but it should be "correct".
I agree. The app should teach the difference between in and on - for the most part it seems like nel can be translated as either, but i guess not always? Also, when is nel used as opposed to nello?
My understanding is nello is used for words beginning with a z (zoo) or with s+consonant (e.g. st as in stivale) nel is used for words beginning with a s+vowel or words beginning with a vowel.. Hope this is correct.
I see I'm not the only one thinking hats and sandals should never meet. Hat for thinking sandals for dancing, to paraphrase a well known phrase!
The phrase in question is 'Head for thinking, feet for dancing' or 'Up there for thinking, down there for dancing.' It originates in Liverpool I believe.
Plenty of Irish folk went to Liverpool. :-) Maybe some Liverpudlians went the other way?
I agree Mike and I find that to be the case so often . I suppose by now I'm just supposed to Know which gender the following word is so that I can work out if it's nel or nella .
The voice said, nella. As i slowed it down, and it definately says nella
I am not learning English, therefore a typo in sandals should not make the answer wrong
Why are we shoving our shoes into our hat? That doesnt seem very sanitary to me...
