"The keys, please."
Translation:Las llaves, por favor.
The "o" for masculine and "a" for feminine is more like a guideline than an actual rule... Obviously not every word is going to end in an o or an a, but they all need a gender. Also, there are -o feminine and -a masculine words, too. It can seem confusing, but with some practice the genders will come naturally after a while.
There are lots of exceptions. Why this particular word is one I do not know.
I always learned "claves" not "llaves" - is this a difference with Spain vs. Mexican spanish?
The pronunciation sounds like a soft g sound in the beginning of "llaves". I thought the double l sounded like a y... ????
I put por llaves por favor and i got that because i just tapped on the words to get the spanish word and copied it but i did that and got the answer wrong. Can somebody please explain it to me?
'Por' means 'for', not 'the'. You need 'las' for 'the' in this sentence. The rest is correct.
