Are a blue shirt and blue t shirt different?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Barbarakay10

Please, only one comment with "right" is enough. We understood that it's right, no need for everyone to comment with "right". Just upvote answers when they are correct or/and useful. Give a lingot to thank the person.

If too many messages with the same content (like "me too", "thank you") it makes this forum hard to read, and we must scroll a very long time to find interesting questions or answers. It also make more difficult for people who want to try to answer your questions. So, don't do it, just use the upvote button.

Ok but you didn't need to get all sassy about it, people can speak when they want and how they want. #freedomofspeech

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

it not different it just this blue shirt I:^


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paul862466

Did you just azul my gender?


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

"azul" is used for both, masculine and feminine, the feminine and masculine forms are the same.

"azul" in "la camisa azul" is feminine, because "camisa" is feminine.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rico669486

If "camisa" is feminine, does that mean it's a woman's shirt? If so, what is a man's shirt? Is it "camiso"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gurpreet168572

I agree. If you look at it blindly, you would write ' a shirt blue' and get it wrong


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EstherD19

In (for example) the languages Spanish and French they say 'a shirt blue'. They would say that 'a blue shirt' in English is wrong.


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

yup, also in my country. so don't think that english is superior


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bryan525573

Is "the clothes" plural? "las ropas" was wrong. La ropa =the clothes?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cate18315

Only because in english we dont say "the cloth", "las ropas" isn't used.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gurpreet168572

Yes, la ropa does mean ' the clothes' la for the and ropa for clothes.

Don't we usually get a warning if we wrote the phrase in English rather than Spanish? I've seen that happen, though I don't remember the specific context, and I feel like, if I went as far as to translate it, I obviously heard it correctly.


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

We have it only if the software is able to recognize you've mixed the languages, it's not easy to program.

I hate when I push for a word and it doesn't come up on the screen


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

I find it interesting how sometimes the adjectives are after the noun they're describing in Spanish, while in English, using that form would be grammatically incorrect. for instance, "a shirt blue" would not really be right, but it's used in that kind of order all the time in Spanish.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/J.C.Fink

English often puts adjectives after nouns when naming geographical features - Lake Placid, Mount Pleasant, River Rouge


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

I just answered right and you claim its wrong.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Faith638432

I got this right and now your telling me i got it wrong!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AndrewEleazar777

Shirt... I forgot the r and couldn't stop laughing...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jerry924636

Why isn't it "Una azul camisa"?


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

First the noun, then the adjectives


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/duke.zubby

I did 'shirts' with 's'. Is that grammatically wrong? I got it wrong.


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

If you answered "A blue shirts" then, yes, that would be grammatically wrong.

Additionally, "shirts" is plural, but the Spanish has "Una camisa" which is just one shirt, singular, so "shirts" is not a correct translation.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Brandy602797

Why does it mark it wrong when the only difference is that i didnt put a period at the end? It doesnt mark the others wrong without punctuation.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LinaAli576927
