In French is there a difference between the word for 'alone' and the word for 'lonely'? Because in English there is a significant difference, and I'm not sure the best way to translate 'seul'.
What's the difference between 'seul' and 'seule'?
One is masculine, the other is feminine.
Which one is feminene and which is masculen
Seul is masculine.
Seule is feminine.
Does this also mean single? As in without a boyfriend/girlfriend?
We would rather use "célibataire", but "seul" can also be used for this meaning.
If I am a female, it should be " Je suis seule", right?
How appropriate, Soul and lonely(Seule), when spoken, are the same.
I am guessing you meant sole in English (which means "one and only"). A quick googling says the origin of the English word Sole is:
"Solus" (Latin) to "Sola" (Latin) to "Soule" (Old French) to "Sole" (English)
So then how would "sol"(Latin for the sun) fit in, like solar?
They're quite different. If you do not notice the difference, you should practice these words:
Do both lonely and alone translate into this one word?
I'm confused. I answered with "alone" and got it wrong. The correct answer was "single."
The drop down options for the word suis also has 'am following' - wouldn't that be "je suit seul" (I am following alone) ?
Is this the same as "I am lonely"?
