whats the difference between el gatos and la gatas whereas both are plural.
They should written as "los gatos" and "las gatas". Anyway, in general, Los gatos refers to all male cats or a mix of male and female whereas las gatas refers to all female cats.
Here's a good article on dealing with plural forms in Spanish
It's kind of difficult for English speakers to get used to Spanish, as every noun has a gender, even seemingly nonspecific ones. In general, the rule is nouns that end in -a are feminine (la) while nouns that end in -o are masculine (el).
Don't worry you'll get used to it quickly.
- Los perros - las perras
- los ninos - las niñas
- las chicas - los chicos
- el nino - la niña
Study the rules, but pay attention to the gender patterns . . . o . . . a
as vcel said... both of them are in plural but the unique difference is that: "Los gatos" is for male "Las gatas" is for Female
Hi. I am Spanish, from Madrid. I am going to try to help you: I don't know why you are using the singular articles "el" and "la" when you refer to plural nouns "gatos" and "gatas", however must be "los gatos y las gatas", since in Spanish always the noun must agree with its article. This treatment is different to the English language: For example: "the cats" maybe translated in four possible forms: La gata, las gatas, el gato, los gatos. Hope that helps
