"I am yours."
Translation:Sono la tua.
The wording on so many of these questions is ambiguous. I'm assuming this a female speaking to a male, but just by reading it as "I am yours" in English without any doesn't tell you enough. And yes, i realize that they included the word "la" in the answers, but to test myself i try to come up with the answer on my own before looking down so in my head i came up with the way i, as a man, would have said it; sono il tuo.
No difference. From my experience with Spanish, sono tuo, would be soy tuyo in Spanish. Just like sono il tuo, soy el tuyo. They're teaching complete formal Italian so you know exactly how it is. But most native speakers would rule out the article. Works same with the feminine.
Its simple. Tua (yours) is for when what "you" possesses is feminine. And "tuo" (yours) is for when what "you" possesses is masculine. The possessive pronouns depend on the object, i.e. the thing/person being possessed. - Io sono tuo (boy to girl) - Io sono tua (girl to boy) - Il mio cavallo mangia la carota (my (masculine) horse eats carrot) - Il cavallo mangia la mia carota (The horse eats my (feminine) carrot) :p Got it ?
So I asked my Italian speaking sister - the Tua\Tuo\whatever is about the subject of the sentence for instance: If two MALES talk to each other about a feminine object - one male will STILL say LA TUA Camica = YOUR shirt and if two FEMALES talk to each other about a masculine object - IL TUO topo = YOUR shirt :)
all of the above come from "TU" (meaning YOU) Tua (Feminine YOUR) - if you speak about something feminine (I.E. La Tua GONNA - the GONNA is feminine). Tuo (Masculine YOUR) - if you speak about something masculine (I.E. Il Tuo GATTO - the GATTO is masculine). Tuoi - (Masculine PLURAL your) - If you speak about somethingS masculine (I.E i tuoi GATTI - the GATTI is plural). Tue - (Feminine PLURAL your) - If you speak about somethingS feminine (I.E le tue GONNE - the GONNE is plural).
That's basically all the TU variations. there are also mio, Suo(your, but from Lei), suo (his,her,its), nostro, vostro(your, but from Voi), Loro(your, but from Loro), and loro(Their).
It's quite complex, but once you get the hang of it, it's actually quite fun. from there it's only to learn which word is feminine or masculine.
Im very confused.....how do you determine if "io" is masculine or feminine? Is it by who is saying the word? A man saying it would make it masculine, while a woman saying it would make it feminine? And if that is the case, how does this question make any sense without context? I mean, I know a lot of the questions on this app dont make sense. But this one isn't just grammatically strange, its that they've picked something that doesnt help anyone learn. This is very frustrating so early on in these lessons. Its already difficult enough to learn a language, let alone try to learn one with situations like this :/
