Tak, tak, tak...

Shouldn't it be "ona kocha cię"? Is there a difference?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheShinigamiRyuk

Not really. I put it in that form, and it counted it as correct.

It's not ideal. "Cię" is an unstressed pronoun and shouldn't be put at the end if there is another option.

I have the same doubt as Hemílio. Jaka jest różnica między "cię" i "ciebie"?

"ciebie" is the stressed version of "cię". Both "Ona cię kocha!" and "Ona ciebie kocha!" are perfectly fine, but the first one seems to me like a normal statement and the other a bit as if it really stressed love: "she LOVES you, man!"

"cię" generally shouldn't be at the end of the sentence, apart from the very short - 2, maybe 3-word sentences like "Kocham cię". Otherwise, at the end position "ciebie" should be used. Also at the beginning, which is rather rare anyway: "Ciebie kocham, ale jej nie!" (You - I love, but her - not!)

Dziękuję bardzo @Jallei! Perfectly clear now :)

Must ciebie precede kocha?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jellei

Well, in this sentence it really depends on the emphasis, all of the following seem probable to me:

Kocha cię. / Ona cię kocha. - pretty neutral sentences

Ona kocha ciebie. - probably said like "Ona kocha CIEBIE" = "She loves YOU, and not George! Go to her immediately, you fool!"

Ona ciebie kocha. probably said like "Ona ciebie KOCHA" = "What she feels towards you is LOVE."
