Actually, that's something I've wondered about. Do speakers of languages with genders not use the article until they're sure of the word? I.e., would a Spanish-speaker never say "Consígueme el ... ¿qué es la palabra? ..."? (I hope I got that right, my Spanish is a bit rusty) -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'. Everyone's just a big dork or nerd, you just have to find people who are dorky the same way you are." - overheard ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTaylor42
