"I am not a girl."
Translation:Eu nu sunt o fată.
A Romanian keyboard would be nice to type the words with those extras on the vowels.
I agree, I had a few almost corrects because my keyboard wouldnt show the u accent thingie
I have a romanian key board enabled. Press and hold on a letter to get the accent. You can download on in your system language settings.
You can change your settings on the computer and phone to be able to quickly switch between keyboards, some can even use multi keyboard at the same time.
What are the rules when it comes to removing the accents over letters, like with fată and fata. Thanks.
fată = girl
fata = the girl
Feminine nouns usually take the feminine article -a, so it overrides the ă. Apă to apa, casă to casa, lampă to lampa, &c.
Yes. It's a little inconvenient, but it also really goes to show how similar Romanian is to the rest of the Romance languages.
Use un with masculine words like bărbat, and use o with feminine words like femeie. It gets a little more complicated with definite articles, but for now that's all you need to know.
Here are a few examples to help you pick up the pattern:
o femeie - a woman
un bărbat - a man
un băiat - a boy
o fată - a girl
a farfurie - a plate
un tort - a cake
un scaun - a chair
What is the correct word order? Sometimes they use Eu nu sunt and other times Eu sunt nu
Eu nu sunt. The other one could be used for "Eu sunt, nu altcineva" "It is me, not someone else". In Romanian the negation typically precedes what is being negated. For this sentence it may seem otherwise, but one could interpret it as a denial of the state of being a man, woman etc.
May I say "un fată"?
