So it seems like temporada means season as in "deer season", while estacao is season as in "Fall is my favorite season". Is that right?
Yes... for something that lasts for a period (like deer season), use temporada. Example: temporada de caça às gaivotas. But you will hear people saying, for instance, a temporada do frio (=winter) começa em junho, because frio "cold" is something that wil happen during a certain period.
english question... why "season" needs the article "the", but the previous exercise with "summer" was ok without "the"? thanks
by adding an S it does not mean plural, but the second singular person. temporada is third singular person.
Are all singular 'it' subject nouns (season, horse, shelf, kitchen, etc.) then conjugated with 3rd person verbs?
Are plural subject nouns (seasons, horses, shelves, kitchens) also conjugated with 3rd person plural verbs?
