  5. "Pure lui ha uno specchio."

"Pure lui ha uno specchio."

Translation:He also has a mirror.

March 9, 2013



What is the correct pronunciation of pure? The audio above gives what I thought was correct (like "poore") but the audio in the lessons say "piure" or "pyure" like the English pronunciation of pure. I reported it but is there a regional difference?


Now the audio above has changed! It also sounds like the English pronunciation of "pure" I think it should be like "poor eh"


I got this wrong offering Also he has a mirror.

Searching the WordReference.com forums I found Concordo con tutti coloro che hanno scritto ma aggiungerei che, di solito, "pure" comporta un leggero rafforzamento di significato, una certa enfasi. (native Italian speaker). He says he agrees with what has gone before (that "pure" and "anche" mean the same, so my transation should be accepted) but "pure" does add una certa enfasi (a certain emphasis). Perhaps. But absent any context the words mean the same and the answers should reflect this. I shall suggest "Also he has a mirror" be accepted .....


Did you report it in the report field? I am not so sure that suggestions made here are implemented.


Also he has a mirror - is accepted (Feb 2016)


"He has a mirror also" was not accepted, but seems very similar to the accepted "he also has a mirror" and "he has a mirror too".


He too has a mirror is accepted


Why is he even has a mirror not acceptable?


I'd like an explanation for that too ,please


Did you try " Even he has a mirror".


Does this mean he has a mirror in addition to other people that have a mirror, or he has a mirror in addition to other things he has?


Why is it not "un' specchio?


"uno" before nouns start with "s" or "z".


Why is " Even him has a mirror" incorrect ?


What she said does not sound at all like the italian words


"He also has a mirror" is not necessarily interchangeable with "Also he has a mirror." Compare "He too has a mirror, like her" with "In addition to a comb, he has a mirror."
