"His suit"

Translation:Su traje

March 17, 2013



Strange that while Duolingo correctly gives 'el traje de él' as 'another correct solution' for 'his suit' here, it did not allow answering with 'de mío' for 'mine' in another place in one of these lessons.

Because it is "El traje de mí" or "El traje mío". Anyway, you rarely use this kind of sentences in this way. Usually, you say "Mi traje", "Su traje", etc. except if you want to emphasise on the owner.

Sjdps, good reply to AlanProbando, except that "el traje de mí" is not correct, just as "el traje de mío" is not correct either. It's either "el traje mío" or "mi traje".

Im one whos all about creative declaratives when I speak. I long for the time when I will command words in Spanish as such.

I like to gamble with DuoLingo's acceptable answer bank as well.

Why is "el traje del" wrong? Isn't the contraction of "de" and "el" mandatory?

February 15, 2015


"Del" is the contraction of "de" (=of) and "el" (=the), not of "de" and "él" (=he/him).

Oh yeah.. Thank you!

Handy hint to remember that: traje sound s like trench, like trench coat

¿Why is it wrong if I write "Suya traje sastre"? It gives suya as a translation for His and traje sastre as a translation for suit, but DuoLingo says my answer is wrong.

Suya/his/ her/ formal your can only be used independently of nouns and refers to a feminine singular noun. The masculine counterpart is suyo

This suit is his = ESTE TRAJE ES SUYO

His/her/your formal as an adjective to a singular noun is SU

His suit = SU TRAJE

Add an -s for plural nouns
