"Al doilea bou este gras."

Translation:The second ox is fat.

November 21, 2016



I said the "second bullock is fat". Ox and bullock are both castrated bulls. In Australia we had bullock wagons not ox drawn carts. the person driving them was a bullockie. They were the long distance form of transportation and were eventually replaced by trains. I think steer may mean the same thing. A working ox would not get very fat but a bullock bred for beef should.


Is "bou" pronounced like "bow" or "beu"?


Should be like the ou sound in "bow" (a knot tied with two loops and two loose ends). Also it sounds like "nu este gras." I reported it on May 22, 2018.

Edit: Listen to the pronunciation by Andreea: https://forvo.com/word/bou/#ro
