Le -> feminine plural (le gatte - the cats) La -> feminine singular (la gatta - the cat) Il -> masculine sin. (il gatto - the cat) I -> mas. plur. (i gatti - the cats) Gli -> mas plur when the noun begins with a vowel (gli insetti)

I don't know if this may help but Gli is when its plural like .... Example; (Gli insetti )is PLURAL so it is (the insectS) if its not (gli insetti )and It is le insetti (I think) then its the insect it is SINGULAR

For masculin we use il and the plural is i Example: il ponte(Maschile Singolare) i ponti (Maschile Plurale)

For Femminile we use La and the plural is Le Example: La casa (Femminile Singulare) Le case( Femminile Plurale)

Maschile which starts with o,h,a,u and st,z,ps,y Singulare : l'amico Plural: gli amici

Singulare: L'hotel Plural:gli hotel

Is apple a femminile???

I translated "the apples" as "i pomi" and it's incorrect. What's the difference between "la mele" and "il pomo"?

The page is bigger than my screen! Therefore I can never see your correction of the plural article of 'mele'!
