female author would be......autora?
duolingo asked me this question 2 times!?
Sí, the female version would be "la autora".
To me it sounds like altor.
Lol thats exactly what I typed too.
I though the Author of "The Giving Tree" Shel Silverstien was a girl for a long time until I saw the back of the book...
the audio sounded like el actor. any suggestions in re to hearing the difference?
The actor have a stressed k in the middle /ak-tor/, meanwhile the author sounds more a w after a /ahw- tor/. Hope that helps.
Thanks a lot! Honestly, I didn't know that! Dab For Life my friend! (dabbing)
I keep hearing the L in there like aLtor. Any body else?
I hate how they give you 12 easy cognates in a row and then spring the hard ones on you just when you're not expecting them.
I heard el altor
Duo is kind of like Mr Peabody? Ain't he?
I could swear it says "La autor". Anyway, can't author be feminine when discussing a female author?
The female version is "La autora".
Shouldn't the natural accent be on the last syllable? El au-TOR. That follows one of the rules of natural accents.
Terrible pronounciation on this one.
If you object tho authress you should also object to princess.
Authoress is archaic; princess is not.
it is like "author"without the t but can it be feminine or masculine depending on whether it has el or la in front
No, a female author is autora
author = autor/ autora
