Apparently the Italian expression is like the English one: http://www.wordreference.com/enit/second%20hand
why not secondo mano?
"Mano" is one of those feminine nouns that ends with 'o' = La mano
Maybe a little history lesson helps remembering:
I should have remembered "la ci darem la mano"
Excuse me, please can you explain what does your sentence mean?
Yes me too
In Spanish, a lot of words that end in -a and are masculine have Arabic origins. Does anyone know if there's a pattern/ reason to Italian words ending in-o despite being feminine?
Wondering why this is in a lesson on medical terms?
I guess you can hear information second hand.
What is the meaning of that something like "my, your, somebodies second hand" or " from second hand" like second hand shop.
I've heard second hand to mean used: not new
you are right, it is exactly that
In the UK used means second hand and should be marked correct!!
Would seconda mano also apply for second hand/used things?
