Translation:Which one is red, which one is white?
can someone explain how to tell the difference between "blond" and "blanc"? i can't hear any difference.
When is it appropriate to use lesquel, lesquelles, quel, quelles, lequel and laquelle?
Quel, lequel = singular, masculine
Quelle, laquelle = singular, feminine
Quels, lesquels = plural, masculine
Quelles, lesquelles = plural, feminine
- Mon ami vient à la fête.
Lequel ? OR - Quel ami ?
Mes amis viennent à la fête.
Lesquels ? OR - Quels amis ?
Mes amies viennent à la fête.
Lesquelles ? OR - Quelles amies ?
Mon amie vient à la fête.
- Laquelle ? OR - Quelle amie ?
Why is it incorrect if I write, Which one is red and which one is white? Usually in Enlgish we wouldn't use a comma to comibine a sentence. Is this something usually in French?
Still not sure when to use quelle vs laquelle (and the others eg quels vs lesquels)
In this case, the objects referred to are masculine (so, lequel). It would be valid to use laquelle if the objects were feminine.
"one" in English does not have a gender.
In French "lequel" is masculine and "laquelle" is feminine, depending what you are talking about.
- in front of a pile of socks (une chaussette, des chaussettes, feminine): laquelle est rouge, laquelle est blanche ?
- in front of a pile of hats (un chapeau, des chapeaux, masculine): lequel est rouge, lequel est blanc ?
So, if it doesn't specify something feminine, the default is always masculine?
Red is "rouge" in describing both masculine and feminine nouns (le chaussette rouge, la chapeaux rouge) The only time the spelling changes is when the noun is plural (rouges)
Its very difficult to differentiate lesquels from lequel from the pronunciation
Is there a fault in my English? I put one's instead of one is, and got the whole thing wrong.
I typed "which is red and whichbis white" and was corrected.. Explain please
It looks like rhymes: "Which one is Red, which one is White..." // The Russian Revolution, right?
I typed Which is red which is white
I believe, in english, is acceptable......
So 'Lequel' would always translate as 'which one'? One of those french things?
