The word you'll confuse with pregnant is embarrassed, and you won't be the first!
hello rspreng i really get mixed up with pregunta. i keep thinking it means pregnant also. it sounds just like it.
because it has an "a" at the end it is most likely to be feminine. i got messed up too but i realized that it is feminine. hope this helps some people out.
pregunta es femenina.
I belive in the spanish language pregunta would be feminine because it ends with a. A good way not to confuse pregnant with pregunta or the other way around would be to look at the context. For example in this situation it has el or la in front of it. Since in the english language it would not make since to say the pregnant, it would have to be the question.
they are both ways of saying "the". All words in spanish are divided into feminine (la) and masculine (el) words. You just have to memorize them. There are patterns though, like how most words that end in "a" are feminine and most that don't are masculine
