Hi everyone,


@Rain, the gender of "questo" and "quello" depends on the grammar gender of the thing/person you are referring to. For example, if you want to say "that (bag)", it will be "quella (borsa)", if you want to say "that (box)", it will be "quello scatolo" and so on.


@Lassi, Grazie mille! "Keep up the good work" in Italian is "Continua cosรฌ!"


Grazie a tutti e a presto!

Ofelia

Ciao Ofelia. Thank you for your explanation but i am still confused. Never mind. I will try to read more to understand it. I have one more question. "Questo per favore" and "Quello per favore". I know the meaning of these two phrases. "Questo" and " Quello" are masculine singular. I am a woman. So shall i say "Questa per favore" and "Quella per favore" ? Looking forward to your reply.


Grazie mille โ˜บ

Ciao Rain,


The gender of a word is almost never related to the gender of the speaker. Of course if the word refers to the speaker, than it depends on the gender of the speaker.

In other words, no matter who is speaking, a word has gender related to the thing/person/animal it refers to.

For example "borsa", "bag" is a feminine noun but you can use it either you are a man or woman.

For inanimate objects, you have to learn by heart the gender, even though there is some rule: for example most of the nouns that end in -a are feminine.


I hope this helps!

Grazie,

Ofelia

Ciao... I am absolute beginner of learning Italian. I have bought a book for learning Italian.. Some words are masculine and some are feminine... meaning that the word can only be used by guy if it is masculine word?

Hi Mary Jean,


Are you buying a ticket at the station? Then you'd say:

Vorrei un biglietto andata e ritorno in gironata da Firenze a Siena.


If you have more questions, feel free to leave a message here.

Buono studio!
