"Non ti posso nemmeno parlare."

Translation:I cannot even talk to you.

Unfortunately, the "hover hints" do not even list "even" as a possible translation for nemmeno...

"I cannot talk to you either." Is this a possible translation? If not; how would you say that?

"I cannot talk to you either" = "non posso parlare nemmeno a te";

"I cannot even talk to you" = "non ti posso nemmeno parlare";

the two Italian sentences seems the similar, but they have very different meanings.

explanation: "nemmeno", "neppure" and "neanche" can be adverbs (=not even) or conjunctions (=neither/not either). they are adverbs when they're nearer the verb, they're conjunctions when they're nearer nouns and complements.

other examples: "non ci conosciamo nemmeno" = we don't even know each other - "nemmeno io lo voglio" = neither I want it - "Io non lo voglio nemmeno" = I don't even want it.

I hope to be understandable.

Non ho nemmeno un'idea

Well I had the same translation... any explanation here?

This sentence totally confuses me. Can someone please explain it?

Ti = "a te" = "to you" (indirect object pronoun)

non posso parlare = I can't talk = I cannot talk

nemmeno = even

Hope this helps.

EDIT: I corrected my mistake, thanks hybridpro.

ti = a te

So 'a te' can also be used instead of 'con te'.

I'm trying to imagine a context for this… “This meeting is highly improper. I cannot even talk to you without drawing attention from the authorities.”

The hover hint would help more if it had for "neanche" the possible translation of "even," the word that the system is looking for.

I am finding these tricky until I started linking non... nemmeno, non... neanche

September 15, 2013


wouldn't it be clearer to just say: "Non posso nemmeno parlare a te."

See above comments for the difference

Can it be translated as "I cannot talk less to you"?

March 13, 2017


"I even cannot talk to you." was marked wrong and I am wondering why.

Can someone please explain the difference between 'nemmeno', 'neppure' and 'neanche'?

The woman speaker pronounces the letter 'P' as a 'D'. Reported! No problems with the male speaker. He is easy to understand.

Stringing together the hints word by word how about....I'm not allowed to talk to you.
