Wouldn't be a grand piano?

June 19, 2018

  • Piano grande = big piano
  • Piano de cola = grand piano

thanks, you helped me understand this one. grand piano is a name of an article and not the size of it.

Thank you, Have a lingot.

Technically, your right. Anyway big piano makes no sense...

January 24, 2019


It could be a big grand piano—maybe a concert grand (9-foot, for instance) instead of a baby grand (e.g. 4.5-foot). Or a studio-sized upright instead of a spinet.

Thank you. This is very helpful

Thank you!

And a lingot for you.

There is a type of piano called "a grand piano" so "we love this grand piano" is the expected translation.

January 25, 2019


This doesn't mean grand piano. See the other posts.

January 25, 2019


I guess i thought this would be "Encantamos este piano grande?"

May 17, 2018


Nope, because the English and Spanish structures are completely different. In Spanish, we don't like/love something/someone, somethin/someone pleases/charms us. Basically, the sentence is literally:

Nos encanta este piano grande = This big piano charms us ≃ We love this big piano

N.B. If you wonder why the sentence doesn't start with the subject, it's also possible to say Este piano grande nos encanta, but it's more common to put it at the end.

Why nos, and not nosotros?

December 6, 2018


because 'nos' it not subject case

I though nosotros was always for the beginning and nos is for the middle of somewhere of the sentence besides the beginning.

November 21, 2018


The direct or indirect object, in this case "nos," always comes directly before or directly after the verb. I haven't learned yet how to use it after or connected to the verb, but I know it is used that way sometimes.

We love this grand piano is a more natural way to say this in english.

March 20, 2019


Nope. A grand piano is piano de cola.

March 20, 2019


A "grand piano" is a specific kind of instrument. A "big piano" is not. This sentence is just talking about a big piano.

May 8, 2019


We like is the same like we love in this case, shouldn't be a mistake!

Why not 'A nos encanta este piano grande'

March 31, 2019


Why not " nosotros"??

April 9, 2019


It could be "A nosotros nos encanta este piano grande." The nos is necessary though as the indirect object pronoun in this sentence. Encantar is like gustar - with these verbs, the sentence translates literally as "to us the piano is pleasing."

Why is grand piano not suitable alternative to large piano?

In the UK we would never say big piano, it wouls be a grand piano, which is the term I use. My answer should be accepted.

May 24, 2019


This has already been addressed multiple times.

May 24, 2019


Could this also be translated: "We love this grand piano.)? If not, how would you say: "We love this grand piano."?

September 25, 2018


As mentioned above, 'grand piano' as a type of piano is piano de cola

November 8, 2018


Surely in English a big piano is known as a grand piano

March 20, 2019


Nope. A grand piano is piano de cola.

March 20, 2019


We used to have a baby grand piano in the front room and that instrument was really big. Not as big as a concert sized grand piano like they haul out onto stage for the concerts at the Philharmonic. I myself own a Baldwin Saint Regis baby grand. It. Is. Big. But I would not ever refer to it as a big piano. It's a grand piano. Period. Sometimes I detest DL.

December 17, 2018


This isn't referring to a grand piano. A grand piano is piano de cola.

This is a large or big piano.

    The Spanish sentence is ambiguous and does not make it easy to understand whether a big piano or a grand piano is intended here?

    January 16, 2019


    The Spanish isn't ambiguous at all. Grand piano is el piano de cola, as has been explained above by Alezzix.
