Spanish vocabulary: Amor (Love)
So, here's my first Spanish Vocabulary post at Persona Paper.
Today's word is " Amor ", " Love " in English, " Amour " in French!
" Amor " is a masculine word, so we must always use masculine articles and/or adjectives.
For example: " el amor " (" the love ") ("el" is the masculine article), or " un amor bonito " (" a nice love ").
According to the Real Academia de la Lengua Española (Royal Academy of the Spanish Language), the origin of this word is from Latin language: amor, -ōris. ( Amor, Real Academia de la Lengua ).
