Here in Venezuela that word means the owner and it can pertain to the owner of a car the owner of a phone etc it can certainly mean landlord but it's like saying tuna when you mean fish. A tuna is a fish, but there are many other fishes. One can be the dueño of something without being a landlord.
I always like seeing strong and direct comments posted by people who know what they are talking about.
Not a lot of sentence contained this word in this occupation-section unfortunately.. :(
The landlord is not necessarily the owner, at least not in the US. I lost a heart because of this!
Two things first I'm pretty sure you have to own the land to rent it out to people and two when duo lingo is teaching you a word I would suggest going with what is first on the list unless it does not make sense.
As a tenant, you could be dealing primarily with an agent, manager, or building supervisor who is not the owner. Although legally those people might not be the landlord, most English speakers would understand the meaning.
The legal definition aside (since not all of us are becoming lawyers), "landlord" (in American English anyway) can be the person who rents out the property and not necessarily the owner. When renting a house in Austin, we refered to the person we gave money to who was someone in the retail firm hired by the owner as the landlord even though we knew the owner. I don't think we ever refered to the owner as the landlord (just as the owner) while we were there although it probably wouldn't have sounded weird.
Whereas, as a Tennant, you could be dealing primarily with Billie Piper, Freema Agyeman, and Catherine Tate (at least for a while). ;)
Isn't landlord "casero"? "Dueño" is more of an owner so indirectly it could apply to a home but not sure..
I learned this word in Mirai Nikki. "Yukiteru Amano es el primer dueño del diario del futuro." "¿Quién será el tercer dueño?" "Necesitamos eliminar todos los dueños de diario."
I wish there were other options. I hate getting it wrong just because i cant hear the word.
Because the word is "la dueno" which is feminine what is was masculine,how would it be outlined?
