"The girl eats the egg."
Translation:La ragazza mangia l'uovo.
The definite article is L' (elision of LO) before any vowels with the exception of i+vowel and y+vowel: l'albero, l'erba, l'isola, l'ora, l'uva.
It's written as LO before s+consonant, z, gn, ps, pn, x, and the aforementioned cases of i and y: lo squalo, lo zucchero, lo gnocco, lo psicologo, lo pneumatico, lo xilofono, lo iodio, lo yogurt.
It's IL in all remaining cases.
Questions .. 1 you said L' before any vowel...exception of i+vowel. Q.i+consonant is lo ? Example pls?
2 ...exception of y+vowel Q2. Y isnt a vowel...why mention that? Scratch that q2... Y is sometimes a vowel https://blogs.transparent.com/english/vowel-sounds-is-the-letter-y-a-vowel/
If you use the word "one" after "there are," the phrase becomes "there is one ... ." Perhaps you meant "Why say all correct sayings? You give the impression there is more than one correct answer."
Coryad, often there IS more than one correct way to convey the same meaning.
