Plural Articles

We have seen the Italian definite article (il, lo, la) and indefinite article (un, uno, una) have different forms depending on the gender of the following word (masculine or feminine). Now let’s take a look at how the plural forms of nouns will also change the article to agree with them:

Definite Articles

i is the plural form of il
    the bars → i bar
    the restaurants → i ristoranti
    the senses → i sensi

gli is the plural form of both l' and lo:
    the articles → gli articoli
    the men → gli uomini
    the hotels → gli hotel
    the uncles → gli zii
