Where is 'he' in the correct answer? "Lui mangia l'insalata" was marked incorrect
"Lui mangia l'insalata" just worked for me.
Why I cannot use 'la insalata' instead of 'l' insalata'? Thanks.
'La' and 'Lo' are used before words starting with Z or double consonants like 'Lo SQualo' 'Lo Zucchero' ; and 'La' is the feminine form of 'Lo'.
Remember the plurals:
Il / Lo > I (i)
La > Le
Gli is used in plurals before
So both il and la change to l' when the noun begins with a vowel? For some reason I was under the impression that only applied to masculine nouns.
Yes, l' is used with both masculine and singular nouns that begin with vowels.
Contrary to what AntnioCout1 said, "la" is not used with masculine nouns starting with z or s + consonant, only lo is used.
The sentence is " He eats the salad" and I translated as " Lui mangia l'insalata " and Duo says it is wrong. How is that possible??
Why is it "Lui mangia..." and not "Il mangia..."?
I think il means the. And lui means he.
He in Italian is "Lui" He in FRENCH is "Il."
Couldn't "Mangia l'insalata." be either "He eats" or "She eats"?
Yes but it is supposed to be implied
the other 2 choice are l'spuntino and l'salsiccia. Why would these not be lo spuntino and la salsiccia?
Good eye! Sometimes we're testing more than just your vocabulary ;)
Why is insalata masculine? I assumed it was feminine because it ends in "a"
'Insalata' IS feminine. The article reverts to l' in front of both masculine and feminine nouns starting with a vowel.
Why cant it be la instead of l'?
Because 'Insalata' Started With A Vowel, And 'L'' Is Always Used Before Singular Words Starting With Vowels, Wether They Be Masculine Or Feminine.
Why can not I say Lui mangio
Mangio is only used with "I/io".
Mangia is used with "he/she - lui/lei.
Where is the "he" in the translation, which was given as "Mangia l'insalata." Why is "Lui mangia l'insalata." not correct?
it shows another correct solution 'mangia l'insalata' but without lui in this case you don't know whether it's he or she ..
What is the difference between 'la' and 'l'? Help me out here.
l' uses for vowels in front of word, and la uses in sentences where word starts with consonant
He eats the salad can be translated as. Lui mangia l'insalata and mangia l'insalata. Both are correct.
Your answer shows - Mangia l'insalata. Yet your question shows as above. He eats the salad, making correct answer; also as above, Lui mangia l'insalata.
