"Sì, lo so."

Translation:Yes, I know.

That would be "Si, lo conosco". Conoscere and sapere both mean "to know". Sapere is used for knowing facts and information, and to know how to do something. Conoscere is used to know people, places, famous people, works of art, songs, etc.

So which is better: "Conosco un po Italianno" or "So un po Italianno"?

Can't this be translated as yes I know him?

February 27, 2013


That's what I thought. For example http://italian.about.com/library/fare/blfare116a.htm gives 'lo' as direct object pronoun for both him and it.

No. Sapere can be replaced by "to possess an information saying" while conoscere means "to be familiar with". The sentence "I possess the information saying him" makes no sense. Compare it with "I possess the information saying it." On the other hand "lo conosco" could mean both him and it.

I checked it out, The meaning of 'Lo so' is "I know it / this".

"I know" also accepted (because there's no context)

I said: yes, I know that, and it was marked wrong. How should i say that then?

August 10, 2017


why the lo. Can't this be Si, so. what is the point of the lo here?

I'll bet a native speaker would say it sounds funny.

Is io (letter I) and lo (letter L) the same?

June 27, 2015


I have learned to be very careful. At first I made many mistakes because in the font used by DL l and capitol i ( I ) are too similar. Their new style for mobile devices is a bit better.

Aren't Si La Sol musical notes?

January 31, 2019


Yes! Until you made me look it up, I had no idea the history behind them was so interesting. Be careful, as they differ over time and between countries. I think I've seen the Ut/Do variation in printed music.
