comment Comparing two opposing things
This may be scemantis, but in English you also cannot compare opposites; you can only contrast them. Which is what your statements actually do. "My friend is more intelligent than you" is actually a statement of contrast, not of comparison.

comment Marmot vs Groundhog
For things like this, where a word is only used in an area where Spanish is not natively spoken, it's common to use the native (English, in this case) word. I could very easily see a Spanish-speaker living in the northern U.S. say "Ayer vi un Groundhog".

comment Standalone Gerunds in Phrases
I agree. In Spanish, the infinitive is used alone--at least in most cases.

comment What is the significance of the gender of a noun in Spanish?
@JoJo: English sometimes does use gender on objects with no sexual organs. "She sure is a beautiful ship!"

comment What is the significance of the gender of a noun in Spanish?
There is one case where English is less ambiguous than Spanish WRT genders, and that is the third person pronouns. Spanish uses only "su", where English uses "his" or "hers". It's one case where I can get back at my Spanish speaking friends for teasing me when I make gender mistakes... when they say "his" when they mean "hers"...

comment What is the significance of the gender of a noun in Spanish?
I think this is far too broad for a single question. You have 4 or 5 distinct questions here. Many of them are very good questions, but need to be asked separately (some of them have). I encourage you to focus on one specific aspect per question; and by all means, ask as many questions as you like!
