Welcome to the fourth Bulgarian lesson about the plural. This time we will learn about the singular form and what it looks like in the plural, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of emergency phrases. To hear the pronunciation, just click on the sound icon.
The plural is the form which refers to more than one object or person. For example: I speak two languages the plural here is [languages] because it refers to more than one [language]. The examples below use plurals in different ways and places to demonstrate how they look when converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules - Bulgarian + Pronunciation|
|I speak one language|
[singular form] Аз говоря на един език [Az guovorya na yedin yezik]
|we speak three languages|
[plural noun] ние говорим три езика [niye guovorim tri yezika]
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun] той посещава много страни [toy posyeshtava mnoguo strani]
|they are happy now|
[plural pronoun] Сега те са щастливи [Syegua tye sa shtastlivi]
|she has five red shoes|
[adjective + plural noun] тя има пет червени обувки [tya ima pyet chyervyeni oboovki]
|I want a sandwich without onions|
[preposition + plural noun] Искам сандвич без лук [Iskam sandvich byez look]
The following is a list of examples showing both the singular and plural form. This demonstrates how the plural is used with humans, objects and animals.
Now it's time to practice your Bulgarian by looking at these phrases which are related to emergencies. Be prepared when traveling abroad, just in case you need help or by offering help to someone else. I recommend writing these expressions down on a notebook before traveling.
