While some words in Italian can be used in the same way in English, other words require a bit more attention. We cover five specific nouns in this lesson.

Two Main Takeaways

  • There are five commonly used Italian nouns that are used in their plural form in Italian, while in English it’s more common to use their singular form.
  • For example, the word “capelli”, which translates to “hair” in English, is used in its plural form in Italian. That means that we need to use verbs and adjectives in their plural form when talking about our hair in Italian.
