"It" in your language
 | 
Brazil BR_1_MonteCastelloBattle_Ger_0 
Does "it" exist in your language In portuguese we don't have this, so for all words ended up with an "a" is a female example: whale = baleiA So baleia is a she, so we would say after seing a whale "ohhh she is so beautiful" Same goes for anything, a pencil (lapis) for an example is a he so we would say "He broke while i was writing it" what about yours?

He says that in portuguese (and all the latin languages as spanish, italian, french, etc ...) everything is designated by a gender, people (ofc), objects, animals, and even immaterial concepts. The exemple of OP is the whale. In english when you say "I saw a whale today" you don't specify the gender of the whale. Meanwhile in latin languages a whale is always refered as feminin. (In Italian "Una balena", in french "Une baleine", etc ...) "Una/Une" is used to define the female genre. It even works for abstract concepts. "The republic" in french "La republique" ("La" is only for females), "A crime" in italian "Un crimine" ("Un" refers to male) etc ...

nice explanation ma fren
2019-11-27 21:53
still cant understand how the french could create the metric system, this 'illogical' grammar and then the way u say the numbers doesnt make any sense
2019-11-27 21:53
it is illogical by your view, not ours

assigning genders to inanimate objects should be illogical by everyone's standard. If one was to create a language, would it be a logical thought for that person to start referring to things as if theyre either feminine or masculine? In Dutch we also assign genders to objects, but also have 'impartial/neutral' objects, which we refer to with 'het' (it). Just because your language does that, it doesnt mean you have to think its logical to do so.
2019-11-30 01:25
Infact, I said it isn't illogical only by our view. Why all this explanation?

Because I think its weird to not think its illogical, just because it exists and you use it. Sure, you can get used to it, but that still doesnt mean its logical if you think about it. That's why I gave the example of a person creating a new language.

Historically there has always been at least 2 genders in the latin language (with a neutral gender and a few others), but every modern latin language kept those two basic genders
2019-11-28 09:43
French didn't invented this system, as it's latin it has been spread under the Roman Empire before the Franks invaded the gallo-roman regions. That's also why french seems a bit apart from other latin languages (ITA, ESP, POR, ...) as franks imported sounds and words from their original barbarian tribe. Also there's some ancient greek influence but that's another subject. You refer to the metric system but keep in mind that there's 1500 years difference between the events I mentioned previously and the invention of the metric system. Back in the later days of the roman-empire only a few knew how to write and there were a lot of language variations even in the latin world from one region to another. There were no real standardize language apart from litteral latin.
2019-11-28 15:47
That's because languages usually develop naturally over time and are not designed (big exception programming languages etc.). The metric system on the other hand has been designed to be simple and logical.

They have a lot of words of latin heritage but it actually comes from French as french lords conquered and "built" the kingdom of England 1000 years ago. Pleb was speaking a kind of saxon language but the lords and nobles French (Thus there's still official speeches from the UK Queen in French).

2019-11-27 17:14
but how can it say "it rains"? Imagine a cloud talking "I rain" it doesn't exist in french. Unfinished language.
2019-11-28 16:05
funny cause unfinished brains in France often say " ça pleut " "il" as it is used for unpersonal things and "ça" for personal stuff , with exception (if "il" can be misunderstood with someone , we forced to use "ça" like "ça pue" / it smells ) anyway french is more finished that u think
2019-11-30 01:16
"ça pleut" can't replace "I rain" or "you rain". Unfinished.

2019-11-27 17:14
We don't have an 'it' , we only use verb in cases such as 'It rains outside' or 'I love it'. And words also change depending on the gender, we have masculine,feminine and neuter gender. By the way, I know there are languages like Finnish which don't even have genders, let alone the 'it' pronoun. They indirectly express the gender of that object!

We don't have it as in english but words vary depending gender (male/female) and quantity (plural/singular). Using the first example on the thread, whale = ballena, is a female word but even with that characteristic we don't treat as 'ella' (she). So we say ''ohhh is so beautiful" without the need to add the gender (._.)_b

2019-11-27 17:56
Nothing wrong with using an article before ('La' in this case), that's the correct way to do it. The thing we don't use is personal pronnouns in that case like ella. It would also be correct to say 'esa' (that) or 'esta' (this) ballena (or their plurals too: esas, estas). I didn't use the article on the phrase's example translation because its not necessary there (._.)_b

2019-11-27 18:08
In French it was translated as "ça" which is the short for "cela". Cela/ca is closer to "This" than "It" but the idea is kind of the same.
2019-11-28 15:52
In Spain it's translated as "Eso" which means "that" but the film also has the name in English so we just call it "It"

to explain further: 'Het' is the same as 'it', when one for example says: "Its raining" 'It' is also the same for neutral pronouns of objects. But we also use 'de' for 'female and male' objects.
