DOH! There I go messing up agreements again. Thanks, Chileno! Is the stuff about "barcos de guerra" right? Is there a better way to word it?

La litera es una de las camas, cuando hablas del mueble que está compuesto por las dos camas, entonces es en plural: literas.

He comprado unas literas para la habitación de los niños.

You are talking about las literas and not barcos de guerras, the latter is incidental as las literas could be in your home. :-)

It is a subjective point of view,

Well, I was talking about two different things. Yes - I see now that my agreement with "las literas" and "pequeñas" was wrong.

AND, is it right to say "barcos de guerras" for "military ships"?

"Barcos de guerra" is the correct choice, Lou Ann.

Is this applicable to Mexico / the Americas too?
