Thats exactly what I put (more than once as I didn't stop to read why my answer was wrong!). (I am English though :). )
Same here.. can't stop laughing! I really can't live without tea! Let's see how long the chain of posts gets.. ;-)
The preposition "senza" can be used with the preposition "di" before personal pronouns (senza di me, senza di te etc.) and demonstrative pronouns (senza di questo, etc).
Great question! You can say "senza te". As a matter of fact, there are beautiful songs in Italian using this phrase.
Mina - Io vivro senza te https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dWj7DqfPNQ&feature=youtu.be
Pino Donaggio - Io che non vivo senza te https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNERhjghT7g
There's also "La mia vita senza te". Bit more modern.
And e più ti penso by Andrea bocelli + Ariana grande
There should be more songs refrences on duolingo!
So, what is the grammatical case for "senza di te" rather than just "senza te". This comment is welcome, however, it seems "iffy", and, below you say that "senza te" is ok in song. So, back to my original "Q", what is the grammatical rule for use of "di"? Anyone?
everyone here is talking about tea but thanks duolingo for giving me stuff to tell my crush
"Io che non vivo più di un'ora senza te..." is a famous canzone italiana....
Oops, I walked straight into the tea trap as well! That's what being British is all about, I suppose....it's obviously time for a cuppa to stimulate the grey cells.
That was my question. Would a native speaker distinguish between tè and te.
I put 'it is not possible to' ... rather than 'I cannot' ... and it counted me wrong. Doesn't this mean the same thing?
Well... http://italian.about.com/library/fare/blfare157a.htm shows some examples, but not this one particularly.
There would be a little accent line on top of the "e" to show that it's tea and not you. And I suppose an Italian would be able to distinguish between the pronunciations!
Non posso vivere senza di te, ma non posso neanche vivere senza il tè!
https://youtu.be/_bQGRRolrg0 I couldn't help but thinking about this song!! Non posso vivere senza di te!
Non posso can be "cannot" or "can't" Duo. Do not (Don't) be ridiculous.
Nearly caught me too. Only saved by it being a tiled listening exercise.
