Is there any difference in pronunciation of "Wal"(Whale) and "Wahl"(Choice/Election), or are they just the same?
No, those two are pronounced exactly the same. The meaning comes from the article and the context. And the plural form differs: Wal - Wale versus Wahl - Wahlen.
exactly! What I hear there is "Wald" or "Wall" or something like that. But for sure not "Wal".
My mother language makes it hard to think of a whale as being referred to by means of a masculine noun. >~<
Haha not exactly a lady whale, but I feel an irresistible tendency to place a feminine article in front of it. :p
Deutsch:Ein wal ist kein fisch.aber der wal ist ein säugetier. Englisch:a whale is not a fish.but the whale is a mammal
