Il piatto è il tuo...I don't understand why is necesary to repeat piatto!!! Somebody tell me

February 19, 2014


We repeat saying "plate" only because the original sentence did. The original sentence might repeat it for emphasis. Thus, we do the same.

I am not convinced that it is necessary to repeat

Il piatto è il tuo = The plate is yours.

Piatto is twice because it's 'the plate is your plate', otherwise you're just saying 'the plate is yours'. Very small nitpicky difference...

I don't really see why the il is required in front of tuo. Can anyone explain?

Before a possessive an article is almost always needed: the main exception are most unmodified close family members in the singular (mio padre, tua madre, suo fratello and so on). Also, it's not needed in predicate position: "quel piatto è tuo" (that plate is yours) versus "quel piatto è il tuo" (that plate is your one).

What is the difference between tue tuo and tuoi?

May 16, 2018


The first being for a feminin noun , masculin and plural respectively. At least thats what i think.

Exactly as our friend said previously...I'll just add some examples.

  • Tua - Pron. posse. di seconda pers. sing. fem.

Esempio: La tua casa

  • Tue - (femminile plurale di tua)

Esempio: Le tue farfalle sono bellissime

  • Tuo - (maschile sing. di tua)

Esempio: Il tuo amico è molto leale

  • Tuoi - (maschile plurale di tuo)

Esempio: Quando i tuoi amici hanno figli

Why do I have to repeat piatto? I said Il piatto e il tuo.

Still no answer as to why we need the second 'piatto'

May 28, 2019


I didn't know that

Why is '...piatto tuo' wrong? Why does the tuo has to come before the piatto in this case?
