can you leave off the pronoun and just say Да, готовлю?
We don't usually drop pronouns, but technically it's possible.
I used prigotovlyu. I'm still not clear on the difference :-(
I think я приготовлю means 'I will cook'
Готовить seems to be used to mean "was/were cooking". приготовить seems to mean "have cooked"
You're right: готовить is unfinished aspect (was/am/will be cooking), приготовить is finished aspect (have / will have cooked).
So gotovlju is for singular, and gotovim is for plural?
Готовлю is mainly "am cooking" from what I understand.
The verb gets conjugated based on the pronoun.
Most verbs follow a basic conjucation formula.
Why is there an л in the conjugation of the Я? It almost makes it look like it's past-tense, and I can't think of any other verbs that add an л before the ю.
Why can't I say ''мне'' instead of я?
мне is the wrong case. Here Nominative is demanded, so you have to use я, because "I" is the subject in this sentence.
Why isn't it ok to use приготовлю here
Does 'я' need to be capitalized as 'I' is in English? It does not seem so... Thank you.
