Welcome to the fourth Galician 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.
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 wehn converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules - Galician|
|I speak one language|
[singular form] falo unha lingua
|we speak three languages|
[plural noun] falamos tres linguas
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun] el visita moitos países
|they are happy now|
[plural pronoun] están felices agora
|she has five red shoes|

|I want a sandwich without onions|

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 Galician 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.

|Call the ambulance chame unha ambulancia|
|I need a doctor necesito un médico|
|Where is the closest pharmacy? onde está a farmacia máis próxima?|
|Are you okay? está ben?|
