"La camisa amarilla"
Translation:The yellow shirt
jeffrey, because you have a verb and there's none in the sentence to translate. the shirt IS yellow = la camisa ES amarilla.
Couldn't it have given me a pass on The yellow blouse.? I guess it could have been referring to a man but..
Why does the color come after the noun? Because then I have to switch it around and have no idea how to order it when writing it myself. It is like saying, "The shirt yellow." ??
It is like that. In Spanish adjectives go after the noun. In English is the opposite. Just think it that way. Just flip them over. You will get used to it.
I thought it was saying "la camisa a María." have to work on my hearing.
It needs to be "the shirt is yellow". I checked with google translate and la camisa amarilla is the shirt is yellow also my Spanish teacher said it didn't make sense because she thought it meant the shirt yellow it shouldn't be backwards in this particular sentence I lived in mexico for 12 years I know how to speak fluent Spanish so fight me.
yes, the adjective changes to match the noun it is describing, since camisa is feminine yellow becomes amarilla, if it was describing say a shoe; zapato, which is masculine, it would be el zapato amarillo :)
"The color red" is translated "El color rojo", "El color rojo" is translated "The color red" but "La camisa amarilla" is translated "The yellow shirt" here. Why "The shirt yellow" is wrong?
Yellow in this sentence is describing the shirt. In Spanish, adjectives go after the noun they are describing. In the case of "the color yellow", yellow is not an adjective. Plus... why would you ever say "the shirt yellow" in English?
bc it doesnt make sense... dont translate words, translate the whole sentence together so it makes sense even if you have to move a few words around
The "ll" is its own letter in he spanish alphabet and is pronounced like "y", so "amarilla/amarillo" is pronounced like "amariya/amariyo". Any instance of two l's together is pronounced like a y - llaves, ella, etc.
I kinda understand why they would mark "the shirt is yellow" wrong. Can someone help and tell me why it was wrong!?
my spelling was just a little of and they said I was completely wrong ',:< (mad face)
