am I wrong if I say that in the feminine form there is NO difference between VARZA = cabbage and THE cabbage ? etc ?


cabbage - varză
the cabbage - varza

Notice the breve on the last letter. Final "ă" becoming an "a" as the definite article is the most common pattern in feminine nouns.


many thanks. I had not noticed it. I should not make theses mistakes anymore now.


Be aware that "ă" and "a" are pronounced differently. AND that most Romanians unfortunately are careless with the special letters, replacing "ș" with "s" etc. It's an obstacle for language learners.

Ă = "uh" (like the "e" in "the") and "A" = "ah"
