This week I’m taking a day off from harassing people on the streets and focusing on the boring stuff (see title).
Zi (f.) – Day (Pl. Zile)
Săptămână (f.) – Week (Pl. Săptămâni)
Numbers from 1 to 12 are unu, doi, trei, patru, cinci, șase, șapte, opt, nouă, zece, unsprezece, doisprezece.
The indefinite article is actually just a variation on the number “one”: unu.
In English the indefinite article is “a/an”. We use un (from unu) or o for this.
So if you want to say “A woman” you have to say O femeie and not un femeie.
For masculine and neuter nouns Un works perfectly all the time.
Doi has the feminine counterpart două. Doi oameni means “two people”, however you must say două femei for “two women”.
Let’s take a neuter noun as an example.
Un balcon – Două balcoane
A/One balcony – Two balconies
The word balcony is not feminine, it is neuter but as you should remember, neuter means: “masculine in the singular and feminine in the plural”.
Doisprezece also has a feminine form: douăsprezece when counting nouns that are feminine in the plural form.
Lună (f.) – Month (Pl. Luni)
An (m.) – Year (Pl. Ani)
