Is there any difference between "e" and "este"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ArguingInElvish

Is the full word more formal? Can I just use e forever?

Indeed, as the single e is faster, it is slightly more often used when speaking, especially in casual and informal environments. Sometimes este sounds better, but I can't think of specific examples.

It would be correct to write "sumele" Because we use to say "the sum"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/radionaive

'Sumele' is the plural for 'the sums', where 'suma' is 'the sum and 'sumă' is 'sum'

I guess I still donțt understand the difference between "doi" and "două". Can anyone explain in plain English? Example sentences would be VERY helpful!!
