Introduction

Imenice [nouns] se odnose na osobu, mjesto, stvar, događaj, tvar ili pojavu.

Nepromjenjive imenice [invariant nouns] su imenice koje imaju isti oblik u jednini i u množini.

Form

Nepromjenjive imenice ne slijede opće pravilo o tvorbi množine, već imaju isti oblik u jednini i u množini. Dakle, ako imenica ima samo oblik u jednini, u množini joj ne dodajemo -s. Razlikuju se prema članu koji im se prilagođava te dolazi ispred njih.

Najčešće nepromjenjive imenice su: clothes, fireworks, glasses, goggles, jeans, outskirts, scissors, series, thanks, trousers

Dodavanjem konstrukcije a pair of prije imenice, smatramo tu imenicu jedninom jer se prema njoj odnosimo kao prema jedinstvenoj cjelini.

Example

Nepromjenjive imenice u množini

  • A pair of scissors is on the office desk.
  • This advertisement is about a new series.
  • Your old pair of goggles is used in the musical.

Nepromjenive imenice u jednini

  • Scissors are dangerous for babies.
  • New TV series about famous writers are going to start.
  • These goggles cost a fortune!

Use

Nepromjenjive imenice koriste se jednako kao i imenice u množini.

Summary

Nepromjenjive imenice [invariant nouns] su imenice koje imaju isti oblik u jednini i u množini te trebamo koristiti pravilan član ispred njih kako bi ih razlikovali. Ne prate opće pravilo tvorbe množine.

Najčešće su: clothes, fireworks, glasses, goggles, jeans, outskirts, scissors, series, thanks, trousers

Naprimjer:
— “I bought a pair of jeans.” / “I bought two pairs of jeans.” = Koristimo istu riječ za jedninu i množinu.
