Looking to follow other linguists

amazingmahu:

I’m currently studying a few languages and I’m interested in finding other linguists and omniglots here on Tumblr.

Please reblog this if you are a linguist, study languages, or are multilingual and I’ll follow you!

One of the first thing that you learn when you start studying Spanish is that fenimin worlds end in -A and musculin in -O but this is not always true.
Here some example among many, of worlds endind in  -A but masculine.
What to do? Just memorize these cases and everything would be simplier :)

Many times, the strange article exists because it’s a loanword of some kind (el mapa not included, I believe).
So, el poema, el planeta, el problema, el clima “climate”, el cometa “comet”, el programa “program” are all loanwords from Greek.
el sofá and other words like el pijama “pajamas” are Arabic/Sanskrit loanwords
But the why is less important than just keeping it straight in your mind if you’re new to Spanish.

My German book answer key told me it should be “der Katze” and not “die Katze” and now I don’t know if I can trust the answer key
