"In one year"
Translation:En un año
How do Spanish speakers differentiate between in "a" year and in "one" year?
"En uno año" is wrong. The correct form is "un". "Uno" is a pronoun and "un" is a determiner. A pronoun is a word that can stand instead of noun. So for example, in the sentence "I have one too", "one" is a pronoun because it can stand instead of noun (I have a shoe too). In Spanish, this sentence would be "Yo tengo uno también".
I see, I guess I was trying to use one as an adjective here. So you could say, 'uno año' i.e., one year, but you can't say 'en uno año' ... right?
