  5. "La amistad"

"La amistad"

Translation:The friendship

February 28, 2016



In case anybody else is getting tripped up like I was, it's "el agua" or "el alma" despite those words being feminine because the first A of those words is stressed. In the case of "amistad" the accent is on "amistAD" so it's "LA amistad". Hope this helps!

Darn. Those Ds are so soft in Spanish.

Did anyone else notice that amistad is friendship and that there was a famous slave ship with the same name....weird in an unpleasamt way

This isn't a complaint or anything...but I find myself often having to complex these terms myself....Sure just translating La amistad=the friendship is great...but to enunciate ones understanding of the language is to use them in practical sentences, not grand titles. ex: My teacher thinks that we have a good friendship...again not a complaint...but when you really want to learn a language like spanish with complex and grammatical sentence structures....I'm not sure how helpful this exercise truly is.

general armistad is my friend

In most of these we would leave out 'the' in the English version. But Duo has conditioned me not to take risks, so I put it in...

It sounds kind of like "armistice". Do they have common roots, I wonder?

The common root is am, which is related to "amor" in Spanish (because we love even friends) and "amity" in English.

I made that same mistake, hence I guessed "the agreement". Google translate says "armistice" translates to " el armisticio"

Why was The friend wrong?

Because friend is "amigo" and friendship is "amistad". Two different nouns.
