WE MUST BE SWIFT AS A COURSING RIVER!
WITH ALL THE FORCE OF A GREAT TYPHOON!
MYSTERIOUS AS THE DARK SIDE OF.. THE MoOOoooOONNnnNN. :)
It asked me this question when I had never heard or seen uomini.
why it is written uomini not uomi
"L'uomo" is an irregular noun when it comes to changing it to the plural form. It isn't very common to see this, but this is just an irregular change that must memorized.
When you say it isn't very common to see, you mean "uomini" right? But why do you say so? Men is a common word. Unless I understood wrong...
You're right in the sense that "men" is a word that is used very often. However, irregular nouns in general are very unusual within the language and are just things that can be learned only by pure memorization.
because UOMI does not exist =) it's un uomo, due uomini
That isn't very helpful. Is there some sort of rule or is this an exception?
My question too.
It's an exception. One of those words you just have to memorize
So, we are people is a wrong answer? Or it can be correct in a right context, using the same sentence?
wait! It didn't say Noi!
noi is irrelevant if you have "SIAMO" "noi" is no needed. siamo is already WE ARE
The previous question used 'uomini' as human beings, but in this question it was used as 'men'. With small sentences such as these, is there a way to tell which is being used?
It depends to the context
What's the difference between man and men?
Man is uomo, men is uomini. The O changes to I in the plural context.
Its hard to understand
it question shouldn't be "we are mens"?
"man" is an irregular word it changes to "mEn" in pruler unlike the words when we just add "S"
It is hard to understand
Love this language ♥
