"He eats the salad."
Translation:Lui mangia l'insalata.
'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 vowels
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.
the other 2 choice are l'spuntino and l'salsiccia. Why would these not be lo spuntino and la salsiccia?
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.
Because 'Insalata' Started With A Vowel, And 'L'' Is Always Used Before Singular Words Starting With Vowels, Wether They Be Masculine Or Feminine.
l' uses for vowels in front of word, and la uses in sentences where word starts with consonant
I wrote this with little space and it was wrong...like this: Lui mangia l' insalata.
Is that the case in Italian? Because both "lui" and "lei" use "mangia", therefore you cannot assume the pronoun. Does Italian assume "lui" if it's omitted?
