"The woman eats a plum and an egg."
Translation:Femeia mănâncă o prună și un ou.
the indefinite article changes depending on the gender of the noun. There are three genders in romanian: Male, Female and Neuter.
Male: Un băiat (a boy) - Doi băieți (two boys)
Female: O fată (a girl) - Două fete (two girls)
Neuter: Un ou - Două ouă
Thanks. I knew there was male and female, but didn't realize there was a specific neuter nominal gender (I figured if neither male nor female, it could be either.)
Yeah, romanian kept neuter from latin. There isn't a helpful rule to figure out which is which, besides counting them as in my previous example. But, you must first learn them as they appear. For natives is easy, but we learned their form before knowing they are X gender and they count in the X way. :)
