at least she has all those cell phones and a pet elephant to keep her company.
Since it's "sola" does that mean this sentence must refer to a feminine speaker?
ya was wondering that as well. but enjoyed the distraction to get the answer. :)
here use sola is mean the person is a female. so if it was a man then will be solo?
Cue Celine Dion's song: All By Myself
"...All by myself Don't wanna be All by myself Anymoooooooooore!..."
Although Celine has been one of my top favs, I've always prefered the Eric Carmen version.
Just had to kick me while I'm down Duolingo... jeez im just trying better myself here!
"Sola" implies that they are female. I would assume if this were a real person speaking to you face to face, you would know their gender, but in this context that is the only way you know just from reading the sentence.
would there be a different way to say 'i eat and sleep alone' or would it be the same wording
Am i correct to assume you should be able to change 'eat' by 'dine'? Or is there a better word to translate 'dine' by?
¿Qué es la diferencia entre solo y sola? When used as an adjective, "solo" is the masculine form and "sola" is the feminine form. A man would say: "Estoy solo (I am alone)," a woman would say: "Estoy sola." So we know that Duo's sentence was spoken by a woman. If it was spoken by a man, it would be: "Yo duermo solo y como solo." Ésa es la sola diferencia.
When used as an adverb (meaning only/just) it is always "sólo" (or more recently "solo"). Example: Sólo quiero lo mejor para ti. (I only want the best for you). For more info see: http://www.spanishdict.com/translate/solo
No solamente is more a kin to saying 'only'.....solamente para ti - only for you.
Instead of "duermo sola y como sola", can we say "duermo y como sola" like we do in English?
My dog sleeps on my bed. How do I say this is Spanish without it sounding like he sleeps IN the bed?
They're assuming a female is speaking, yes? Since I am a man I would use solo, would I not?
I DON'T THINK THAT IT'S DEPRESSING.....I THINK THAT EVERYONE SHOULD RESERVE TIME FOR THEMSELVES.....EVEN THOSE WHO ARE MARRIED WITH CHILDREN......HELPS KEEP WHAT'S LEFT OF YOUR SANITY...
