Translation:En tomat

so, it's 'en tomat', but 'et jordbaer? It's very confusing for me, so I'll just have to try to memorize. How do I know whether something is masculine or neutral?

As you said, you'll just have to memorize these... Sometimes, gender corresponds with the physical gender ("en gutt"), but a lot of words are just about knowing it. As for 'et jordbær': all berries will be neuter, since 'bær' is neuter. So it's "et blåbær" (a blueberry), "et kirsebær" (a cherry), "et bringebær" (a raspberry). And so on!

If only the English language had never (mostly) dropped gender xP
