Is "fork" in portoguese a male word? In italian it's female.
"forchetta" ends in a, so it is feminine. "garfo" ends in o, so it is masculine. The femininity or masculinity does not really depend on the meaning of the word.
Thanls, thats great help xx
Yes, it is a masculine word.
It's a dinglehopper!
What's the meaning of "dinglehopper"
It's from the Little Mermaid.
But why is it masculine?
I honestly haven't noticed a pattern with masculine and feminine nouns. I just try to remember the genders of words.
Mostly ends in "o" = masculino; ends in "a" = feminine. Nouns and articles. the boy = o menino (masculine) a menina (feminine) the water = a água ; the bread = o pão; the dog = o cão,o cachorro (masculine) or a cachorra, a cadela (feminine)
Okay, thank you!
Some Portuguese words like garfo are completely different than the same word in French or Spanish. Yet many others are the same which makes learning tricky.
The audio is quite unclear and even sounds muffled. (No, it is not a problem with my phone.)
Also, words should be in a resonable context. This would help greatly in understanding which words are unclearly pronounced.
