I know for a fact that milk is one of the most digestible forms of calcium, potassium, and Vitamin D. The potassium in milk can help lower blood pressure and the calcium is essential for building strong bones and teeth.
Adult mammalians in general are lactose intolerant. Milk has the opposite effect on lactose intolerant animals, inclusing humans. It may even interfere with nutrient absorption from other foods that are ingested at more or less the same time.
I thought it sounded like "carne". I was not surprised that our meat doesn't drink milk, but I wasn't sure why the subject came up.
If you listen carefully, she says "eh" at the end of "cane". For "cani", it's pronounced "caneeey". The "e" at the end of "latte" and "cane" is pronounced the same in the recording.
What is the difference between "nostre" and "nostro"? They both mean ours so I don't know why they are spelled differently.
Its all about agreement. For example, in English we have subject-verb agreement. Italians have 'possessive-subject agreement.'
Its because the ending has to be changed depending on wether the word before or after is femine(e) or masculine(o)
Just a pointer from something I've been wondering about for ages, in my italian class we use lo for masculine nouns, which is more modern? 'Lo' ir 'il'
Actually, "lo" is only used for certain nouns, I think it was when they started in a vocal or in Z, but I'm not quite sure.
Lo is used before nouns that start with "s" and followed by another consonant or with a or z. E.g- Lo sperone Lo zingaro
What's the difference between 'cane' and 'cani'? Obviously one is plural, but which one? So confusing...
I'm confused. When are you supposed to use nostro, nostra, nostre, or nostri? (I know this has nothing to do with the question but it has been bugging me).
It depends on the thing that belongs to us.
La nostra caramella - our candy/sweet. (singular feminine noun)
Le nostre caramelle -our sweets/candies. (plural feminine noun)
Il nostro cane - our dog (singular masculine noun)
I nostri cani - our dogs. (plural masculine noun)
Thank you. Just 2 quick Q:
1) When do you use 'bere'? &
2) Can you also say "Il nostro cane non può beve latte"?
1) when you need the infinitive 'to drink' (it's a little irregular, bere not bevere as you might think)
2) No, because you can only have one conjugated verb, after that come the infinitives or (if you're using avere or essere possibly the participles).
If it helps think of può as 'he/she/it is able' then tack on the 'to drink'
It means the same thig but thats not what it says, its worded differantly
The woman speaks too fast and doesn't give enough time for the answer Grrrr :(
