Because it's the one specified in the example? And you saying that this sentence is racist, due to the fact that it's stated that the dog is white, then that must mean YOU value black people over white ones, making YOU the racist. Racism doesn't just involve black people, you know. Jews, Asians, Arabs, and, yes, even white people get affected. Grow up!
Any way to input accent on the mobile version? My keybord does not have them (a keyborad dock for a tablet)
I'm not sure about keyboard docks but if you hold down the key on the screen it should give you accent options for that letter. If not, perhaps try going under 'settings' and change the keyboard to a language you want (ex. Italian Keyboard). I hope I have helped. c:
Why does this sentence and other similar ones have "Il"? The direct translation of "The my dog is white" seems strange to me.
I know that bianco is for masculine words and bianca is for feminine. What about the word verde? Would you say il mio cane è verdo or il mio cane è verde?
"Il mio cane è verde." (My dog is green.)
"La mia scarpa è verde." (My shoe is green.)
Verde doesn't change in the singular.
"I miei cani sono verdi." (My dogs are green.)
"Le mie scarpe sono verdi." (My shoes are green.)
The -e changes to an -i in the plural for both masculine and feminine forms.
"Bianco" is agreeing with the masculine word "cane", but "cane" can be used for male or female dogs.
I literally almost added an extra letter to dog (n). Native english speakers would understand.
My dogs (all three of them) are white with black spots, and each one has a big ol black patch on their butt.
