"The woman is eating meat."
Translation:La femme mange de la viande.
April 8, 2018
Because partitive articles are all formed with the preposition "de" + a definite article:
- du = de+le, is masculine, knowing that the contraction is required for euphony reasons.
- de la is feminine
- de l', when the following word (masculine or feminine) starts with a vowel sound.
why is is mange de la viande but mange l'orange? when do you use "de" with manger?
