"She eats an orange."
Translation:Ella come una naranja.
how do you distinguish between objects that are feminine and objects that are masculine?
Look at the ending. Femanine usually end with d, ion, z, a (DIonZa) Masculine usually end with l, o, n, e, r (LONER) these, I learned from school
I do not know any rules but in general most words ending in "a" are feminine(or the plural "as". Someone posted that most words ending in L-O-N-E-R are masculine but I know there are "-ión" and "-ción" words that seem to be mostly feminine. Your going to just have to keep a few basic generalities like I mentioned in your head and memorize exceptions as you find them.
I figured there were some exceptions, it was throwing me off a little. THANKS!
Usually, words that end with a are usually feminine. Words that end with o are usually masculine.
The loners rule is a great method but I recommend to memorize the word rather than guessing.
It all depends on a person's liking and whatnot.
No, you are misunderstanding it. You can say in Spanish Ella come una naranja (literally She eats an orange) or Ella se come una naranja (literally She eats to herself an orange), both means the same. It would be different if you say Ella te come una naranja (literally She eats to you an orange) or Ella le come una naranja (literally She eats to him an orange).
"Anaranjado" means "oranged" or "turned orange", talking about something colored. Of course, "naranja" is a color like "orange".
"Nah-RAHN-kha" (or like "Nah-RUN-kha", the "r" is soft and the "a"s are like in "mama").
What the flipping heck the other time i got this question wrong it said to put a como there next time but now its telling me to put a come there
