Ein Paar Schule = the article "ein" refers to Schule, which is a masculine noun and not Paar, right? Otherwise it would be eine Paar Schule, because Paar is a feminine noun. Can I consider this a rule?
"Paar" is a neuter noun and the article "ein" refers to "Paar", not to "Schuhe" (spelling!).
It's the same in English - "a pair", not "a shoes".
Thank you. I got same question :)
I was wrong thinkg about "Ein" was refering to "Schuhe". I was thinking, "Der Schuh / Die Schuhe, so Eine".
Alles klar jetzt :)
how to decide the gender of each noun? in my language it depends from the ending of the word. masculin, feminine, neutral? are there any rules or should I just remember each word?
For most nouns, you have to memorize the genders. However, in some cases you can tell the gender from the endings. See some rough guidelines here:
So why is it not "eine Paar Schuhe?" danke
Because "Paar" is a neuter noun. The article "eine" is for feminine nouns.
so paar is a noun? I thought it was an adjective
