Why is "Le homme" wrong, but "Le journal" correct? Isn't "homme" a masculine word too?
"homme" is masculine, but the article contracts with the noun, therefore you don't say "le homme", but "l'homme". Since the question gave "le" and not "l' ", the only answer is "le journal". (It is a bit technical, I know)
Actually, you bring up a very good point. No, it is not technical - it is simply the proper way to speak/write this two word phrase. It's also one I had skipped over in my haste to answer the question. This 'test question' was a thinking exercise. And for your reply, I'll give you a Lingot!
becase sometimes its la sometimes its le. It depends on if its a feminine word or a masculine word
why is it "journal" only when it could also be "homme"? it cannot be journaux because that's plural and "le" is for masculin singular, it cannot be pomme either because pomme is feminin in french. but i still don't get why it can't be homme? les journaux la pomme le journal le homme?
are you ever so tired you misspell "newspaper" as "bewsoaoer". because i do. whoops
