Different from English, in Romanian the nouns have genders: masculine, feminine, and neuter. We find the gender by counting the noun:

  • MASCULINE: UN rechin - DOI rechini --- (one shark - two sharks)

  • FEMININE: O focă - DOUĂ foci --- (one seal - two seals)

  • NEUTER: UN avion - DOUĂ avioane --- (one plane - two planes)

"un" is the indefinite article for masculine and neuter nouns.

"o" is the indefinite article for feminine nouns.


Only until the rechin mănâncă o focă . . .
