Du implies that the noun has no article, or it can be translated into some. Je mangedu pain translates into I am eating bread orI am eating some bread. Je mange le painmeans I am eating the bread.
Very confused with the difference between beer and butter lol, like I think they may sound different when you say them but they are spelled a bit different and that always confuses me with these audio and type questions ahah
When it comes to "Je mange du beurre"
How can I know if it is either "I eat butter" or "I eat some butter" ?
You can know based on the context. If the context indicates that the sentence is describing an action, then it's the latter. If it's describing something someone does in general, then it's the former.
In the translation they make it seem that "beurre" the verb form of butter, as in, to put butter on something. Is this word also the noun? I can see it is meant to be in the context but the translation bubble fails to say that.
