But what does this have to do with Animals? That's the section that I'm currently in

I think that this sentence could be translated "That is a big apple".

I think aei_kei is correct; you have two different things here: '[vo seb] baRaa hai' = "[that apple] big is" 'vo [ek baRaa seb] hai' = "that [a big apple] is" Note in the second sentence that modifying adjectives come before nouns in Hindi, just like in English.

Your sentence should rather be "वह एक बड़ा सेब है," I think. I can't quite explain the difference though. Sorry. :(

I have a question: the letter "ड़" (as in, for example, "बड़ा") is sometimes pronounced like an "r" (which sounds (to me) like the Spanish "r") and is sometimes pronounced like an "l". Are both ways to pronounce that letter ("r" or "l") interchangeable?

ड़, pronounced "ɽə", is a "retroflex flap." The Spanish "r", just like "र" is, pronounced "ɾ"; they are both "alveolar flaps." However, I am not sure how to explain what exactly makes "ड़" different from "ɾ."

Thank you!

The "retroflex" part means that the tongue is making contact with the roof of your mouth at a point farther back in your mouth than for an "alveolar" flap. It takes a bit of practice to get your tongue so far back where it sounds distinctly different, (and it might sound a bit funny at first) but you get used to it eventually.

Do any of you excellent people know how to type the ड़ symbol with google input tools? Or any other tool?
