If the sentence was "I am very lazy today", would this change the Spanish translation to Yo estoy muy perezoso hoy"?
Very good question. I believe you would be correct though I'm very tired so a second opinion just to confirm would be nice.
In Duo's sentence we are talking about a characteristic that the person normally displays so 'ser' is correctly used.
In your sentence however we are saying it is a condition that the person is displaying for today and not necessarily something they normally display. 'Estar' is used for these types of situations.
Thanks Michael. I enjoy reading your comments. They are always very helpful. Your replies to others have helped me in the past.
I found this confusing- the speaker is obviously female, but uses 'perezoso'- can anyone explain?
