Day 221 of My Italian Learning Journal*
Today, with the help of a Hinative.com member, Anasdav, I learned an interesting point of Italian grammar: the way English plurals are translated into Italian. I still consider myself as a beginner as I independently learn Italian, so there is still much for me to learn. Today I have learned what is referred to as “loan” words. For example, when using the plural “computers” and translating into Italian, the word remains singular as in “due computer” in Italian. An exception is the word “marines.” This is an excellent lesson to keep in mind.
