Is there an easy way to connect the gender to the word if it doesn't end in -o or -a?
just got curious... why salt (in dictionary it's masculine) is feminine? Is there any additional rule?
I do not think there is "el sal" in Spanish, but then again, i could be wrong :) but La Sal juat means, "the salt".
i said la sal but instead, sang it. I guess i have to do this more seriously. lol!!
Estou aprendendo inglês e espanhol ao mesmo tempo e achei muito estranho "sal" ser feminino
La sal. You just have to memorize for many cases like this. From a linguistic engineering perspective, gender noun cases don't carry nearly enough of a benefit to justify the amount of time new learners will have to spend memorizing entirely arbitrary noun cases that come with exceptions and impossible to determine words like this. Even when you find a trick to determine the gender of most words, it just becomes grunt work to make sure your "red" is the right "red" or "roja" for a sentence, even if the actual information being conveyed isn't altered at all by the gender distinction.
