"An animal is eating."
Translation:Et dyr spiser.
In English the usage of an or a relies on vowels or consonants.
Eg- words beginning with AEIOU will always be An "An apple, An orange" Consonants are almost always "A banana, a cat, a dog"
But some people will use "An" for softer consonants such as "H (HEY-ch)" sounds"
"An H.D TV" but NOT "An helicopter"
I always presumed their was no such rule for genders in Danish or any other language though.
