gente f (plural genti)
gente f (plural gentes)
For usage examples of this term, see Citations:gente.
- (persons forming or belonging to a particular group): povo
- ^ "gente" corresponds most closely with the English meaning of the word "people" as "a group of two or more persons." In Spanish, as in English, this word does not typically have a plural, since it is a collective noun. The plural is used in several common idiomatic phrases, however, or, rarely, in literature (e.g. don de gentes). Note that the other common meaning of "people" in English, which does have a plural, "a group of persons forming or belonging to a particular nation, class, ethnic group, country, family, etc" does not correspond with "gente", and "pueblo" should be used to convey that meaning, which may be singular or plural.
