from what my Spanish friend told me, Lo siento is used when apologizing for a small action, like, "I'm sorry, I don't have any sugar" where disculpe is more for when you're interrupting someone such as, "I'm sorry, but could you hold the door?" or when moving through a crowd and you bump into someone, "I'm sorry" or "excuse me" or "my bad"

So what is perdón used for then? Or are they interchangeable?

I think you can use them interchangably, but I use 'perdon' more when I didn't quite hear what someone said and need them to repeat it.

There's a Spanish word for that, "mande", even though google translate shows it as something different, it's a polite way of saying "What?".

https://www.duolingo.com/AndrewTorr3

A more more neutral version would be "cómo". I've only really heard mande used with my Mexican friends but it's not widely used in other countries (never heard it talking to family or friends from PR, Venezuela, and Spain for example). Just a heads up, people might be confused.

"Mande" is a formal way of saying "At your service" when someone calls for your attention; it literally means "command (me). It really sounds respectful and pleasant when someone answers you like that.

‘Lo siento.’ is not a literal translation of “I'm sorry.”. Literally, it means “I feel it.” ‘Lo’=“him|it” is a direct-object clitic pronoun for nouns of masculine and neuter (that is, undetermined) gender; and ‘siento’ means “I feel”.

"Lo siento" doesn't have an external gender: "lo" (it) is reffered to the thing that you feel sorry about and it's an undefined gender thing, since it can be used to masculine and non-specific gender words; "siento" is a conjugated verb, is the 1st person of singular of the present tense "sentir", verbs doesn't have gender neither. So, it doesn't concern the person who says this or who is saying to.

But, by the way, "la siento", with the "la" instead of the "lo" reffers to a feminine word or person, and it changes TOTALLY the meaning, because it stoped meaning an apologise and transformated to a common sentence. "La siento" can be used for example in this phrase: la herida es muy profunda, aún la siento = the wound is very deep, I'm still feel it.

In fact, the meaning of the phrase is that you "feel" the pain of the other person who are talking with you, so you "feel it". But I know it's not than common in English to say "Oh, I'm feeling it, bro" or something than "I'm sorry".

"yo siento" or just "siento" means "I feel". Lo siento as pointed out above literally translates as "I feel it" but it's a standard Spanish phrase for "I'm sorry". It's just a stock phrase you have to learn, a bit like if you say "pardon me" in English you're not literally expecting to be pardoned for a crime.

In the present tense, unless you're contrasting yourself with someone else, answering a ‘¿Quién…?’=“Who…?” question, or emphasizing yourself, the ‘yo’ is always optional, because it's always obvious from the verb. The same is true of the preterite (simple past) and future. But for all imperfect, conditional, and subjunctive tenses, aspects, and moods, the ‘yo’ (first-person singular) verb form is the same as for ‘él’, ‘ella’, ‘usted’ (third-person singular), so you may need to include the ‘yo’ for disambiguation.

The form ‘siento’ is unambiguously first-person singular, “I feel”.

“One feels it.” is ‘Uno lo siente.’

Spanish has a reflexive verb ‘sentirse’, which is used to describe how one feels about oneself, in expressions such as ‘Me siento {bien|mal|querido|aludido}.’ = “I feel {good|bad|offended|loved}.”

thank you very much , I was lazy, - I should have used the dictionary to delve deeper- yes, the grammar is definitely 1st person singl.

You're getting it right, then. In Spanish, when there's a diphthong of a low vowel (‘a’, ‘e’, ‘o’) and a high vowel (‘i’, ‘y’, ‘u’), the accent always goes on the low vowel. So, for example, ‘siete’=“seven” is pronounced ‘siéte’, and ‘veinte’=“twenty” is pronounced ‘véinte’.

When you have a high vowel (a/e/o) and the next or the fisrt is a low vowel (i/u), the accent is always in the high one. However, when you need that a "u" or "i" to be the stressed letter you must put an accent on it like "ú" and "í", then you can stressed it when you read it. If it hasn't got an accent, the low vowel is pronounced less strong than the high vowel. Just remember each word have also a different accentuation depends on if it's oxytone, paroxytone or proparoxytone, so maybe is other the stressed syllable, not the vowel-vowel one.

Look at this: http://www.profesorenlinea.cl/castellano/diptongotriptongo.htm it's in Spanish, but you can translate it, it has got an easy text, but read the example words in Spanish because when you translate it to English some words separated with - in parts get translated and change the structure of the original word.

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Camelor

'Lo' is a pronoun that means 'it' or 'he.' You'll learn more about these later.

I'll use an example. 'Yo lo Quiero' means 'I want it.' 'Yo quiero' = I want. The lo is 'it.'

These kinds of pronouns either go before the conjugated verb, like in the example I gave above, or they're attached to the end of the infinitive.

For example, "Yo quiero hacerlo" would mean, "I want to do it." You could also say, 'Yo lo quiero hacer.' It also means, "I want to do it." It's just a different way of saying it, both are grammatically correct.

The phrase 'lo siento' is not translated literally though. Literally, it's translated as "I feel it." However, it's used idiomatically as "I'm sorry."

"Is it too late now to say lo siento"

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Phuque.Ital

While this is a way to apologize like "I'm sorry," it's kinda cool to know that "sentir" is actually the verb to feel, and "lo siento" is a conjugation of that verb into the first person. While you're leaning a different language, keep in mind that they all have their own ways of labeling things, describing concepts, and constructing sentences. Understanding that will give you a deeper understanding of the language, rather than just matching the English translation to every new Spanish word you learn.

From what i have been told by many native Spanish speakers is that lo siento is more of my condolences or you have my sympathy. When you do something and you are apologizing the correct phrase would be desculpame - forgive my culpability.

Because you are talking about the thing without named it, it's like "him"/"it".The meaning is "I feel it", and the "it" is the pain of the other person that you are apologising to. "I feel your pain", "I feel it" "Siento tu dolor", "Lo siento". "Yo" is a personal pronoun that means "I", in Spanish is not necessary to put it since the conjugation literally say it with the different end that it has. "Siento" is the conjugation of "sentir" (to feel) in 1st person of singular. Yo can say "Lo siento" or "Yo lo siento". "Soy" means "(I) am", it is the conjugation of the verb "ser" (to be) in 1st person of singular. Yo can't say "I am I feel", so you can't say "soy siento".

That means "I feel", and it cut the object of the expression. However, you can say "lo siento" or "yo lo siento" and it means the same since the pronoun "yo" is included in the conjugation of the verb "sentir" ("siento" is the 1st person of the singular). But without the "lo" you miss the "it", and you aren't feeling whatever, you are feeling an specific thing, so you put "lo" and you feel "it".

"It" is the pain of the other one who is talking with you and the one who you are apologising to.

When you make a terrible mistake (accidentally or on purpose) or you hurt someone (physically or emotionally) and you regret it and are really sorry, you always say in Spanish "Perdóname" or the formal "Perdóneme" which means "Forgive me." It conveys regret, repentance, sorrow at hurting or making the blunder.

    Can somebody explain why Lo siento is used instead of Yo soy siento?

    Why is Lo used, where else is it used and why?

    My Spanish instructor explained it like so: lo siento is what you'd say if someone's cat just died, or they are losing their house. You really 'mean it'.

    That is not easy without context. Write several sentences which you would use with "sorry" or "excuse me" and we will write them down to you our more-used translations from our homeland. :)

    Although I seem to recall that they already were written in the thread so good answers about that question...

    Literally (word for word) "I feel it".

    • [Yo] Siento → I feel
    • lo → It

    "I am sorry" could be translated into "lo siento" or "lo lamento".

    "Yo soy siento" →"I am feel" (Both of them don't mean anything, just gibberish.)

    It is not using "lo" instead of "yo". "Lo siento" is the same that "Yo lo siento". "Lo" has nothing to do with "yo".
