4.4 Change of gender in plural

This is really a strange phenomenon and the author doesn't know any language where something like that happens. There are words in Italian where the singular is masculine and the plural is feminine (change of article).

Examples
  il braccio => le braccia
  the arm => the arms
  il ginocchio => le ginocchia
  the knee => the knees
  il dito => le dita
  the finger => the fingers
  il labbro => le labbra
  the lip => the lips
  il ciglio => le ciglia
  the lash => the lashes
  l' uovo => le uova
  the egg => the eggs
