I've always had problems differentiating between the audio "pain" and "pomme". This question really confused me

Paying attention to the articles helps me. "pain' being masculine and 'pomme' being feminine, the articles are different.

I guess "un pain" wouldn't make much sense.

Why not? You can eat a whole loaf of bread.

Could du pain also be translated some bread?

I'm starting to think the french have a very limited diet.
