What is the difference between buenas and buenos?

July 12, 2013


Buenas is feminine and buenos is masculine

Por Ejemplo:

"Días" is a masculine word

"El día", makes it Buenos días because Buenos has to be masculine too.

"Noches" is a feminine word

"La noche", makes it Buenas noches for the same reason as before.

The 2 words have to match in gender.

I notice that 'noches' is translated as 'night', 'gloom', and 'sadnesses' - is this true in all dialects of Spanish, or does one country make use of different connotations more than the other? e.g., would a Peruvian-born speaker use 'noches' to mean 'sadnesses' more often than a Spain-born speaker might?

These are very rare uses everywhere. For all practice purposes, "noche" = "night".

Poetic usages, just like in English and just about all European languages. Probably lots of others, too.

Why not "buena noche"? Why is noche plural in this usage?

February 23, 2014


Both buena noche and buenas noches work, but buenas noches is more common.

Is "Buenas noches" used as a greeting? Or is it only used on parting as in English?

It is also used as a greeting.

Thank you Luis. I am going to live in Spain very soon and I don't want to get things wrong.

Whats the different between thank and thanks

June 1, 2014


"Thank" is a verb, "thanks" is a noun or a second- or third- person present tense transitive verb.

Noun: You could say "I gave my thanks to John", you would not say, "I gave my thank to John".

Verb: You could say, "She thanks John", or "You thank John", but not "She thank John".
