But why is it wrong to put "i am not a boy" instead of "i am not a girl"?
Because definite articles in Romanian are gender-specific. We use "o" for feminine nouns and "un" for masculine ones, therefore "o fată" was the only correct option.
I was just wondering the same thing...
Duolingo said that if i put "I'm not a girl" its wrong, because it's supposed to say: "I AM not a girl". Does it make any difference here?
what is the difference between "o" and "un"
When the noun is in singular, "o" is for feminine noun genders and "un" is for masculine and neutral noun genders.
O fată - două fete; Un băiat - doi băieți; Un lucru - două lucruri
(A girl - two girls; A boy - two boys; A thing - two things)
why there is no option for fetiță ?
Fetiță would be "little girl". The ending "ță" in this case is a diminutive suffix added to "fată" to make it "smaller". I hope that helps.
Thanks, this is a new word for me.
