I've seen sentences with "...sono pieno" and "...sono piena", so from what I can tell "sono pieno" is used if the person speaking is a man, and "sono piena" is case it's a woman, is this correct?
You're right! :)
Marziotta- is there a more correct or formal way of saying "full" in this context? (such as "I am satieted" in English)? Do people REALLY say "sono piena"???
I wrote "non, grazie..." Why is thar wrong? Why do I should use "no" insted of "non"? Thanks!
Non meants not , not no
Actually, according to my Italian landlady, when a woman says "Sono piena," it means "I am pregnant." The correct expression for a woman is, "Sono satsia, grazie."
Sto pieno isn't correct?
I thought that too, after all isn't "full" a transitive state?
I allways say this too when i am in a restaurant and the waiter asks me if I want the bill ;-)
The verb is incorrect. Italians use 'avere' with pieno, not 'essere'.
Is not "intero" an alternate translation meaning=
When I was in Italy (Trentino) I was said that "piena" is an unpolite way to express it and that I should use "sazio/ sazia" instead...
Perchè, mi ha dato errore " ti ringrazio"???
That doesn't sound very polite! Do Italians really use that phrase? We were taught to say, 'No more, thank you' when we'd had enough to eat.
Yes, we do, and I don't understand why it's considered impolite. We also say "No more, thank you" (Basta, grazie), both are equivalent
There is also the expression: 'mi sento pesante' (I feel heavy), which is used to refer to the same thing. However, at this stage of learning the language, the literal translations works fine and is a good exercise.
I just say, grazie sono pieno come un uovo :-)
Previously I've seen "sono piene", then " no grazie, sono pieni". There's also piana and piene. How can you tell which to use?
But this is sono pieni, how do you tell the difference
I put sono piena as I am a woman. Why is that wrong?
Why is it incorrect to say, No, grazie, io sono pieno?
why can't i use "piena" as if I were a girl
It takes awa the hear because of comma..
I am a woman so isnt it correct for me to use "sono piena"?!
