"Apakah gunting merah ini milik kamu?"
Terjemahan:Are the red scissors yours?
"Are the red scissors yours?" this is plural, whereas the question didn't show any plural word in its sentence. How is it?
As a noun, "scissors" (gunting) is always plural. Some other words with similar rule:
- Celana = pants (not pant)
- Celana pendek = shorts (not short)
- Kaca mata = glasses (not glass, it's a different noun)
Thank you. How about "gajah"? Once I discovered "the elephants" doesn't match with my answer "gajah-gajah", "beberapa gajah", does it also belong the same as scissor?
