1 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.1A.2-1 Punto di partenza As in English, numbers in Italian follow patterns. Memorizing the numbers 0–30 will help you learn 31–100.

2 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.1A.2-2 In Italian, the number uno changes to agree with the noun it precedes. The forms of the number uno and the indefinite article are the same (see Strutture 1A.1). una matitaunamicaun quadernouno zaino a/one pencila/one frienda/one notebooka/one backpack

3 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.1A.2-3 Note that venti drops its final vowel when combined with -uno and -otto, and that the addition of -tre requires an accent. These patterns repeat in numbers 31–100.

4 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.1A.2-4 Numbers that end in -uno may drop the -o before plural nouns. cinquantuno anniottantun amiche fifty-one yearseighty-one friends

5 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.1A.2-5 Cè and ci sono In Italian, use cè (there is... /is there... ?) and ci sono (there are... /are there... ?) to talk about the existence of people or things. Use cè with singular nouns and ci sono with plural nouns. Cè una sedia? Is there a chair? Ci sono tre sedie. There are three chairs. Cè un cane in biblioteca. There is a dog in the library. Ci sono libri ditaliano? Are there Italian books?

6 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.1A.2-6 To ask how many? use quanti with masculine plural nouns and quante with feminine plural nouns and place ci sono at the end of the question. Remember, because quanti and quante are plural forms, use ci sono. Quanti studenti ci sono? How many students are there? Quante matite ci sono? How many pencils are there?

7 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.1A.2-7 Use molti with masculine plural nouns and molte with feminine plural nouns to mean many. Ci sono molti studenti. There are many students. Ci sono molte matite. There are many pencils.

8 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.1A.2-8 Add non (not) to make cè and ci sono negative. Non cè una gomma. There isnt an eraser. Non ci sono molti esami. There arent many exams.

9 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.1A.2-9 Ecco Unlike cè and ci sono, which simply state the existence of something or someone, ecco draws attention to the presence of an object or person. Ecco is invariable. Ci sono sei professori ditaliano. There are six Italian professors. Ecco i professori! Here/There are the professors! Cè un dizionario in biblioteca? I s there a dictionary in the library? Ecco il dizionario. Here/There is the dictionary.
