"The cake on the plate is ours."
Translation:La torta nel piatto è la nostra.
‘nel piatto [fondo]’ means “in the [deep] plate”.
‘sul piatto [piano]’ means “on the [flat] plate”.
I think "nel piatto" translates to "in the plate", and "sul piatto" translates to "on the plate".
I'm not a native or fluent speaker , so i may be wrong. But i think "nel" is something like a contraction for "in the..." As it can be nel, nello, negli, etc. as would be the definite article it is replacing.
Can someone explain why I can't use 'nello piatto' her (as in nel lo piatto) la torta nello piatto è la nostra
lo is only used when a masculine noun begins with a "z" or "s plus a consonant" so with piatto it is nel
Thank you so much for reminding me of that. I completely forgot that was the rule.
Also, nel is a combination of the Italian word "in" and a definite article. So I don't believe you would combine nel with another definite article.
'nel' is a combination of 'in' + 'il', while 'nello' is a combination of 'in' + 'lo'. Basically two different articles in the second part. 'Lo' is used before masculine words that start with 'z', or 's' + consonant. 'Il' is used before masculine words that start with any other consonant.
why is the article "la" used in the second part of the sentence before 'nostra"?
The definite article almost always precedes the possessive word (except in cases when referring to singular family members, such as "mia madre").
Nostra -> feminine, nostro -> masculine.
Torta is feminine, it's comply with nostra.
Is there a difference in meaning wether I use "la" in the second part of the sentence or not?
Ok i got it right only forgot the second t in piatto didnt change it.:(
Il piatto not lo piatto. (The correct article for piatto is il)
Nello = in+lo. Nel =in+il.

Why isn't this le nostre?
