English/Italian Lessons: 15 - The Colors I Colori

Remember that in Italian nouns have "genders". Masculine and Feminine. Masculine usually is identified by the word ending in -o or -i. Feminine words usually end in -a or -e. Whereas there is only one way to say yellow in English, there are four ways in Italian. Giallo (male singular), Gialli (male plural), Gialla (Female singular) and Gialle (female plural). Example: Una Banana Gialla - the banana is yellow Due banane gialle - the bananas are yellow Quell'orologio ? giallo - that clock is yellow Quelli orologi sono gialli - those clocks are yellow The color pink is "Rosa" in Italian. It has an irregular application. Rosa doesn't change whether it is describing a masculine or feminine word, or a plural or singular. ----- Native Italian speakers can tell that I have an accent when I speak Italian. It stands to reason that I'd have an accent in one of the two languages I speak. I think that can be said of anyone speaking a language other than their native one. If you can hear my accent, you probably are either a native Italian speaker, or very accomplished in Italian. In that case I suggest paying more attention to the English being spoken if you'd like to learn the California accent of English. If you're here to just leave silly comments about something unimportant, feel free to, it seems like a waste of time, but I'll leave the perceived value of your time to you.
