Just encountered the phrase 'voi mangiate il pollo' - from what I've been taught shouldn't it be 'voi mangate il pollo'

August 4, 2013


There is no form "mangate."

Oh yea I got it wrong, I thought the infinitive ending was -iate but its only -ate so the we ending is -ate which makes mangiate :-). Gottit

I also just got told that another translation of 'tu mangi il pollo' is 'mangiate il pollo' please can someone explain the difference

Tu mangi is one person, voi mangiate is more than one.

Oh yea forgot that bit, thanks :-)
