Why te and not ti? Because no verbs follow?

"Ti" is an object pronoun and is used as: Ti do il libro; "Te" is used after a verb as in "Io amo a te"

Actually it's the other way around: te is a direct object pronoun, ti is an indirect object.

ti is also a direct object pronoun (clitic) when used in front of a verb, as in this example.
io amo a te is incorrect. Amare is a transitive verb therefore no preposition is needed -> io amo te or io ti amo (clitic or unstressed pronoun).

If I'm understanding how the direct/indirect object pronouns work then using "ti" would be written as "ti penso solo". From what I can gather "ti" is an alternative of "a te", but precedes the verb. At least that's what my grammar book has led me to believe.

Why was " I am thinking only of you" not acceptable

November 10, 2013

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

The placement of "solo" is the difference between thinking of only one person verses having only one thought

November 29, 2018

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

Because there is no "am". And There is no reference to time so "thinking" doesnt work. it has to be "i think of only you" or "i only think of you"

Why can't "I think about only you" work?

This gentleman explains Italian rather well if anyone is having trouble with the clitic section.

But what if she was only thinking of tea (tè), not coffee? Would it be "di tè"?

Edit:I need to explain that this was an audio question (type what you hear).

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/craaash80

It needs the determinative article, so it should be "Penso solo al tè" :)

January 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Muttley71

That would be penso solo al tè. You need the article when you have a noun.
Ex. Penso alla mamma, penso alle vacanze penso ai miei cugini.

Where does ''about'' come to that sentence??

July 1, 2018

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

I guess you're asking why a instead of di? Well, both are correct, but have a different meaning:

pensare a—to think about

pensare di—to have an opinion about

July 1, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bob860250

I put "I'm only thinking of you" which was accepted but can have a different meaning to most of the above eg "I think only about you"

Why not: I only think of you?
