"An apple of land" and this is why languages are so awesome!

If you skinned a potato and an apple, the only way you'd be able to tell the difference is taste and pH

What is the difference in French between There is a potato and It is a potato. Il y a pomme de terre

Isnt "une pomme " an apple?

Why not "It is a potato"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Learpholla

That would be "C'est une pomme de terre".

Is there a shorter word for potato?

I put "He has a potato." The Il is confusing me.
