"It is pork."
Translation:C'est du porc.
So what other ways of saying the equivalent of "It is pork" are there? What is one saying if one says "C'est une porc", "C'est le porc", and so on?
porc is masculine
"c'est un porc" = it is a pig;
"c'est le porc" = this/it is the pig.
What's this meat? It is (some) pork
Quelle est cette viande ? C'est du porc = "some pork" as "an undefined quantity of a non countable thing".
In that case where you could add "some" without changing the meaning of the sentence, you have to translate to the French partitive articles: du (contraction of preposition "de" + definite article "le") or de la (in front of a feminine noun).
Thanks, but I still can't get it)) seems like this phrase needs context in this task
Context can only be:
it is the pork I cooked = c'est le porc que j'ai cuisiné
it is pork = c'est du porc
it is a pig = c'est un porc/cochon (we use both versions interchangeably for the living animal and the meat)
Because "pork" by itself means "some pork" (meat) so in French, you need the partitive "du".
thank you, but now I am more confused : 'it is a pig = c'est un porc/cochon (we use both versions interchangeably for the living animal and the meat)'
