"La fruta es verde."
Translation:The fruit is green.
Adjectives that end in -o will almost always change to -a when describing a feminine noun. Since 'verde' does not end in an -o, it does not change. This is also true of adjectives that end in consonants. For instance the word 'dificil' (difficult) would not change. With some adjectives / nouns that end in -és or -or, an -a will sometimes be added, such as inglés/inglesa and doctor/doctora.
Hi, i was wondering if you could help me, when saying "the black shirt" it would be "la negra camisa" so why for a sentence like this does the "es" change the sentence structure? Because it would be "la camisa es negra"? Thanks in advance.
The usual grammatical structure for Spanish is 'article' 'noun' 'adjective'. So 'la camisa negra' is correct. Additionally, 'la camisa negra' is a sentence fragment. The sentence structure, 'article' 'subject' 'predicate' 'adjective', is used in both Spanish and English. 'La camisa es negra' and 'The shirt is black' both follow the same sentence structure. Hope that helps.
I took green as a color, not as a condition of ripe or unripe. A native speaker will have to chime in as to whether the color word 'verde' is also used to mean 'unripe'.
Why is "blue" one of the listed translations for "verde"? Is this a glitch or is this an interchangeable meaning?
Thanks from your link I went to another Spanish link and saw this word what does it mean coñasasasaso I wonder there is no translation for this.
I keep hearing bebe instead of verde... even when I slow it down. Is there any way that I can tell the difference in the future or do I just have to depend on context clues? And if so, what if there's a sentence like "The green lizard drinks water" where "verde" and "bebe" are right next to each other? I'm worried I won't be able to tell if there's an adjective or not.
jdixon- el lagarto verde bebe agua. i'm not sure I understand what you mean. Those words are pronounced differently. As long as you know that verde is green, and with the R in verde, you heat a sound that isn't in bebe.
So verde also means blue so which one would i choose our how well they know cause blue and green are both colors??!!
"the fruit" can be either singular or plural.with the same verb form. isn't either answer correct?
What is the difference between verde and verdes? I know that they both mean green, but how do you use them?
singular noun -> verde (el vestido es verde) plural noun -> verdes (los vertidos son verdes)
