I found:

Nosotros leemos el diario.

Newspapers are not men and women. Why is this sentence attaching el?

    Welcome to Spanish Language! See this answer, I think it will solve your question. Bear in mind that Spanish words have a género but not a gender (sex). Words like "el" or "la" just mean "the" in English,

El in this sentence is an article, the one ur messing up with is the pronoun.

The article has 4 forms, it depends if the noun is masculine, feminine and singular or plural.

Its like in English We read the newspaper, and diario is masculine and singular.


After I searched why, I found. Because:

  • Spanish has masculine noun and feminine noun.
  • Newspapers are masculine noun.
  • Even if it do not has gender, noun has masculine noun and feminine noun.
