Nosotros and other commands
why are these so hard??? change different vowels for when its negative or positive. i took a quiz on it last week pretty sure I bombed that section......omg!!
Nosotros is not a command, it is a pronoun, we (or us).
It's not for negative and positive, it's for females (only women and/or girls is nosotras), males (men and/or boys is nosotros), or both (females and males is nosotros, too).
my teacher called them commands so I guess that is why i called them commands but thanks that actually helps!
Hm, I wonder whether they were maybe talking about something else? Check with your teacher.
If you want to learn Spanish or any language for that matter, you need to understand that there are genders. Nosotros is a pronoun for 'we' and it includes both males and females. Now Nosotras is 'we' for only females.
Hey guys, the OP could very well be talking about commands, especially if the teacher is talking about negative or positive commands.
They aren't that hard. You just use the yo form, drop the o and use the opposite nosotros ending. :) This is pretty much what the subjunctive is.
-er Infinitive = Comer: To eat
Yo form = Como: I eat
Yo form (como) - o (com) + opposite ending (amos) = comamos = let's eat
-ar Infinitive = Mirar: To watch
Yo form = Miro: I watch
Yo form (miro) - o (mir) + opposite ending (emos) = miremos = let's watch
To make it negative, just add "no" before the command. So: no comamos = let's not eat, and no miremos = let's not watch
THIS IS ONLY FOR NOSOTROS COMMANDS!
Espero que te ayudo! (Hope I help!)
I can see the connection, but it takes a few hops to get from there to "nosotros is a command." Again, I think the OP is getting some concepts jumbled--which is totally understandable and expected when you're learning a language! Talking with your teacher will help you sort it out, because they will know what they've covered recently.
thanks guys I have good clarification and appreciate the wisdom and incite!!!!! God Bless!!
As others have said, "nosotros" is a pronoun. This page has more on these "subject pronouns."
I know grammar can be confusing and boring, but when you're learning another language it is a very helpful thing to brush up on, even in your native language. Duolingo teaches most of the grammar by "doing" but luckily there are many other resources that break it down more explicitly.
