How do you say "extra". As in, I have 3 things, I only need 2 so the third is "extra".

extra → anplis

1. Mwen gen youn anplis.
    I have an extra one.

2. Mwen gen twa valiz men mwen sèlman bezwen de (2). Sa vle di mwen gen youn anplis.
    I have three bags but I only need two. This means I have an extra one.

3. Mwen gen yon valiz anplis.
    I have an extra bag.

    "youn plis" vs "your anplis?

    1. youn anplis or youn an plis means one more, another one, an additional one, an extra one

      I guess we would say anplis instead of plis.
