"The boy has corn."

Translation:Il ragazzo ha il mais.

So what about "Il ragazzo ha mais"? Is this correct? Why or why not?


There are lots of rules in Italian when it comes to the use of Definite Articles, but I believe that for the most part they are needed with some exceptions. I found this helpful, hope you do too. http://italian.about.com/od/grammar/a/italian-definite-articles.htm


Shouldn't it be l'uovo, not il uovo, or are there exceptions to the elision rules?
