10. Els vins (when it's monosyllabic and ends in vowel, it usually makes the plural as -ns too)

I have to stop thinking in Spanish (it's unes and not unas !!!)...

For vi, it seemed to me strange to make vis (because as in French it's vin)

Zoroa is a French native speaker. I don't know if he speaks another Romance language.

I know French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Latin and a bit of Romanian.
I know Franco-provencal, as it is the local language spoken where I live.

Ok :) This will be useful when I explain phonetics or examples.

Question....

Postby Strigo » 2003-11-04, 22:05

Are we going to take grammar first, and later to pronunciation?
(Heheh, it seems I'ma bit anxious, we're just in the third lesson) :oops:
Another thing :

A friend from Lleida told me the can use the double negation "pas" in Catalan, as in French.

Is it right?

Actually I had that doubt too... how does the "pas" work in Catalan?

Actually, I prefer to take a bit of grammar first so you get to learn a bit, and then go to pronounciation, when you already know a bit of the language. Catalan pronounciation may be complicated, but regular.

But if you want, we can do pronounciation now, it's up to you :) You can also ask other things even if we haven't learned them yet and I'll answer them.

Yes, it's right. It is used sometimes, but not as much as Occitan and French. It is used when you want to emphasize something:

No ho he fet pas jo - It's not me who did that.

Also, some expressions use 'pas':

No pas menys de 3 milions de persones - Not less than 3 milion people.

Of course, Northern Catalans use it much more than Southern Catalans.
