Translation:No, poetry is a necessity for me.
If "la poesia" can be "the poem", why can't this sentence be "No, for me the poem is a necessity"? (The context could be editing a book or something.)
Inconsistency again. In one of the previous sentences we had "poesía" without an article. In both cases the word has equally "general" meaning. I'm just getting desperate to see any system in this.
The suggested translation (android app here) was "No poetry is a necessity for me". It looks like one of those cases where the punctuation is a bit important..
me is used when yo is the object of a verb, and it comes first. For example, "Tú me amas" ("You love me"). mí is used when yo is the object of a preposition, in this case para (for). In English, we use me for both.
I left out the "no" so why is that wrong? Was I supposed to assume she was speaking to someone who asked a question?
I have learned that "mi" is possessive as in mi padre. Me pertains to myself but not possessive. I am confused as ever.
"Mi" is possessive, but "mí" (i.e. with the accent) is the equivalent of the English "me". The Spanish object pronoun "me" also refers to "myself".
¿Cuándo se debe usar "for" o "to"? Por ejemplo: "To me the poetry" o "For me the poetry". Gracias.
mountainvistar3, I'm sorry, but I was not answering your question. I was also wondering. Greetings.
that's okay, I am so confused sometimes anything makes sense or not!
In English it would make much more sense in this situation to use "to." Reported.
I'm not a native speaker of English, but I reckon it would be equally acceptable to write "to me" instead of "for me" in the context of this sentence. Can anyone comfirm that?
I spelled it neccesity by accident and they said it was wrong! Its a misspeling why does it not count
I could be wrong, but I believe they only count typos if you're within one letter. Because of the extra "c" and the missing "s", "neccesity" is wrong by two letters.
I'm with you, I think it should count, but it can be hard to draw the line, especially for a computer program. The best course of action with something like this is probably just to report it and see what happens.
