Why is this sentence is "da sola" necessary instead of "sola"?
"Da solo" is closer to "on one's own", "solo" is alone; both would work, just like in English, although "da solo" is better because it implies independence rather than loneliness.
Would then "on his/her own" be better than "alone"?
Or "by herself"--it seems that both "on one's own" and "by one's self" can reflect the self-sufficiency meaning, whereas "alone" (or even stronger, "all alone") emphasizes the loneliness aspect.
Thank you very much for your explaining @f.formica !
In the woods. Now i must bring her a basket of food while wearing my bright red cape.
Does not accept "Nan" either.
Granny still not accepted
what's wrong with Gran?
one can also say " my granny lives alone".
Grandma is accepted
We would say Nan or Gran in Uk why is it not accepted
In English 'granny' or 'grannie' is also often used
It doesn't accept "gran". Jesus.
Nan means grandmother
