Why is σε not required in this sentence?

August 15, 2018

  • There are two ways to use the word δίπλα.
  • Α. Δίπλα σε (+ A)
  • Β. Δίπλα + personal pronoun in the genitive case
  • When it is used with the preposition σε, the complement must be specified in the accusative case.
  • However, when it is followed by a personal pronoun in the genitive case, the complement is implied. Eg:
  • Το κομοδίνο είναι δίπλα στο κρεβάτι. = The nightstand is next to the bed.
  • Το κομοδίνο είναι δίπλα του. = The nightstand is next to it.
  • Το παιδί κάθισε δίπλα στη μητέρα του. = The child sat next to its mother.
  • Το παιδί κάθισε δίπλα της. = The child sat next to her.

I hope this helps. :-)

Ιs there a difference in meaning between "δίπλα από" and "δίπλα σε"?

To me, a native speaker δίπλα από εμένα, δίπλα σε μένα, δίπλα μου have the same meaning (next to me) but one of them might give more information regarding position.
