Translation:La sua seggiola
Pablo, noté que eres de Buenos Aires. ¡Me gradué de Lincoln en La Lucila en 1968! ¡Fíjate! Vivía en Italia antes de la Argentina. Siempre usaba "sedia".
Can someone explain to me why i have to use this "La". Is this some sort of possessive pronoun i do not get?
whenever you use a possesive pronoun in italian the definite article has to come first. it is il mio libro not mio libro. the only exception to this is when you are talking about a single person whom you are related to (mia madre not la mia madre) it also cannot be... eh adapted i suppose is the right word? what i mean by that is you say mia sorella (my sister) but it la mia sorellina (my little sister)
It is confusing to me that we are using "la sua" when referring to "his". Seems like it should be "lo suo" since "his" is masculine.
Because the gender of the owner does not matter at all, it's the sedia which is feminine.
It's ambiguous out of context, but the noun "sedia" is the reason it is feminine. If it was "her bed" it would be "il suo letto" unless of course, it was "his" bed, which you would only know by context. At least that is my understanding.
I, too, used to get confused all the time, it's not intuitive, but go back to the possessions lesson which pretty much covers it.
it was confusing to me at first too, but i now know that la sua, il suo, and le sue can all mean his or hers. if you ask me its more of a convenience than a problem
This is how i remember it with the examples given above: lA suA seggiolA Il suO lettO
Suo, suoi Maschile/ sua , sue femminile... All the time this app is confusing during the translation!
We always use "sedia" and not "seggiola". Seggiola I'll say it twice in my life!
How can we distinguished "his chair" from "her chair" without context or write "His/Her chair". I know "seggiola" is feminine but it confused me without context that I could not specify the masculine for this example. Please improve this exercise.
Why is this sentence all female. La sua seggiola. When it is reffering to male. His hair. Im very comfused. I wish thete was a button that said 'explain this sentence'
