"Is he the ninth?"

Translation:El este al nouălea?

November 22, 2016



Can the "el este" not be switched to "este el" in the case of a question?


It can, but it doesn't have to. It is perfectly ok to have the same word order when asking a question in Romanian (with very few exceptions).


The pronunciation here for "nouălea" is quite odd...


She is the ninth translates to Ea este a noua but is he the ninth translates to noualea. Ninth is ninth. Why the acceptance of one form but a different word for the masculine?? I’m pretty sure Duolingo won’t be helping me. I don’t know why I signed up for PLUS, it’s a waste of money.
