Welcome to the fourth Slovene 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 when converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules - Slovene|
|I speak one language|
[singular form] jaz govorim en jezik
|we speak three languages|
[plural noun] mi govorimo tri jezike
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun] on obiskuje veliko držav
|they are happy now|
[plural pronoun] oni so zdaj srečni
|she has five red shoes|
[adjective + plural noun] ona ima pet rdečih čevljev
|I want a sandwich without onions|
[preposition + plural noun] želim sendvič brez čebule
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 Slovene 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.
