Stupid women's pants. I hate it when they don't have pockets and my smallish cell phone is too big for some pockets.
The easy solution that allows you to be clothed is to wear men's pants.
Mia plej aĝa filino ŝatas porti pantalonojn por farbistojn. Ili havas poŝojn sufiĉe granda por porti Ipad-on
Yeah but men look silly carrying a purse around so just carry a purse everywhere. MWHAAHAHA!
Yes, they just wanted to make it clear to people who speak British English that they weren't talking about underwear.
I rarely hear anyone under 30 use the word trousers these days in standard conversations. Just an observation.
As an American, the only time I hear "trousers" is when I'm watching British TV shows.
I always hear everyone say trousers (except my Caribbean family). But I do live in England and 'pants' would mean underpants, esp briefs
Yeah, in England pants means underwear, and trousers seems to be fairly common. In the U.S. people mostly say pants as it carries no implication of underwear and trousers sounds like something your grandfather used to say.
Not in Lancashire it doesn't. The usage here is the same as in the US. Perhaps this pants as underwear is a new development and the US keeps the older form. My parents always said "pants" for trousers but my grandparents called them "breeches".
Same here, I'm from a Lancashire family and I've always used pants to means trousers. I have to watch my step when I want to go clothes shopping down south!
Hey, english is not my first language. So I have a doubt, "pantalono" is given as trousers. Does that mean that it's a singular noun and not plural? Or is "trouser" the singular form? Then "trousers" should be "pantalonoj"...
Spanish and French (at least) use pantalòn/pantalon, singular form
Why poŝojn and not poŝon? (as the result is nil, we should not use plural, ĉu ne ?)
Dankon Rae. It not logical, but very acceptable! :) I'm not a native English speaker and still need to improve. Btw, Google translated from French to Esperanto as poŝon (singular). So, I guess, Esperanto is flexible enough to accept the 2 possibilities.
Language does not operate on logic. It is not mathematics. Language operates on convention.
Yes, I agree. This is why Esperanto is easy to learn due to logical conventions!! Hehe
