Well, it's 2018. We'll try to be accepting of your love.
To be honest, I am fonder of my fridge than I am of many humans. My fridge gives me food; some humans just give me headaches.
I just keep putting more and more food into mine... it goes somewhere... gone forever!
I have only heard a cooler or icebox refered to as a nevera, never heard a fridge called that.
Just as refrigerator is shortened to the slang term "fridge," refrigerador apparently ca be shortened to "nevera." These terms may be used so interchangeably that either are acceptable as translations.
For instance, "teléfono celular" can be translated as "cellular telephone," "cell phone," and "cell," and I have seen them translated that way elsewhere on DL and Tinycards.
Yes, it has been called that by an older generation that remembers when fresh food was chilled by blocks of ice. Cold desserts were also known as icebox pies.
Hola ReinaRachel. Nevera, refrigerador y heladera. Diferentes países, diferentes nombres. Saludos
Hola Grace, gracias - Estoy aprendiendo - Perro es muy dificil a veces
Don't worry Reina, be patient, you will see that this will be better when time passes. Regards.
Some things can be omitted in Spanish if they're implied. For example, "canto" means "I sing" but so does "Yo canto". (The -o implies that the subject is "yo").
Its even more obvious with direct/indirect object pronouns when it can be omitted because the pronoun is NEVER omitted. (me/te/lo/nos/os/los for direct, le/les instead for indirect). The "a -whoever-" part just specifies who the pronoun is referring to. Its more clear if we use someone other than yo.
eg "A Anna le encanta tu nevera" is the same as "le encanta tu nevera" in the case where Anna is implied in the conversation already. If she's not, the "A Anna" part is absolutely crucial for understanding who is being talked about. I should also note that we use mi/ti with accents when the indirect object is yo o tu.
Hope that helps. Here's some more details if you want to know more https://www.spanishdict.com/guide/direct-object-pronouns-in-spanish https://www.spanishdict.com/guide/indirect-object-pronouns
Both are correct: Me encanta y A mi me encanta. It is the same. Here a native Spanish speaker
I just learned (you may think I'm silly but I don't care) that "me" is a spanish word!!!
My Spanish textbook says, for the verb encantar, "to delight, to enchant" and my Spanish dictionary says "to charm, delight." Although perhaps not something many would say, I tried "I am delighted by your refrigerator" and received two thumbs down from DL. I'm still going to submit it as a correct answer request, and wonder if the verb amor could also be used here, as in "Le amo tu nevera."
Why is it that when saying i like or i love you always say me gusta and me encanta and not yo gusta and yo encanta?
Hi itlva. These are verbs of feelings: like, fear, love,etc. In these sentences the subject produces an emotion or reaction or feeling (fear, happiness, boredom) on another person (obj. Indirect). Example: A mí me encanta la música rock. I like rock music or literally: rock music pleases me. "La música rock" = subject (makes emotion). "Me" =object indirect ( the person who feels or receives the emotion). "Encanta" = verb (says what kind of emotion the obj. Ind feels). I hope you understand me. Saludos
Can someone clarify when to use tú and other times tu? When is the accent supposed to be used?
Hi LouRodriguez1. You use "tú" with a verb because it is a personal pronoun: tú hablas, tú comes, tú caminas, tú duermes,etc. You do something, you do some action. You use "tu" with a noun because it us a posesive pronoun: tu perro, tu mamá, tu casa, tu libro, tu ropa, tu teléfono, etc. You do not do any action, only you tell that something is yours. Saludos
Well, I tried "I like your fridge", and it was rejected :-) To my opinion, it is MUCH more natural to LOVE your kids/wife/parents, not your fridge :-) Fridge does NOT merit love - it is peace of metal and plastic, right? :-)
Hi knv09. You are right, but in Spanish we love to say that we love all things. Saludos
If the person has two "neveras," would you say "Me encanta tus neveras"? Or does tu become plural only if talking about fridges belonging to multiple people?
Hi CLS686165. One person has many fridges: "Me encantaN tus (2,3,etc) neveras (tus-informal, sus- formal)". Multiple people and fridges: "Me encantan SUS neveras (las de ustedes o ellos). Saludos
