Study Notes

Spanish Language

The Spanish language is widely spoken across the world, with over 460 million speakers. It's the second most native-spoken language globally after Mandarin Chinese. Let's explore some aspects of this fascinating language through its vocabulary, color names, days of the week, and months of the year.

Vocabulary

Gender

Vocabulary in Spanish is divided into masculine and feminine nouns, which may seem unusual considering English doesn't have gendered nouns. For example, the word 'la bicicleta' ('the bicycle') is considered feminine because it ends with 'eta', while'el automóvil' ('the car') is considered masculine because it ends with 'óvil'. There are rules to follow when assigning gender, such as singular countable objects often being feminine, and plural countable objects often being masculine.

Verbs

Spanish verbs change according to the subject pronoun used, indicating both tense and person. For instance, whereas the English sentence "I eat" would always remain unchanged whether you say "Yo como," "Tú comes," "Él come," etc., in Spanish, you need to conjugate the verb differently depending on who is doing the action - hence "yo tomo" (I take), "él toma" (he takes).

Colors

Color names in Spanish are learned by rote, so there isn't any underlying system like with English colors based on their first letter. Here's how they translate from English to Spanish:

Blue Azul
Green Verde
Red Rojo
