Translation:We do not speak.
How can't they speak if they are saying they cant speak? I guess its over the internet or something
"How are your sisters?" "We don't speak."
Thanks for another example.
you are absolutely right
yup that's what I thought too hehe
It's like, 'You kinda just did....'
They could have written it down
You are right
Ikr! Even if you are in the olden days you can still write stuff down rather than talk...
I was about to say that!
That's exactly the problem with social media these days. Online interactions are becoming much more common than face-to-face ones.
Yeah, I don't think you're gonna run into this phrase on the street. Not literally run into it but... you get the idea
Thats what was thinking
why is this nosotras, not nosotros? The gender isn't stated.
Well, it is, with nosotras. The english meaning is "we (females) do not speak."
I thought it being feminine or masculine had nothing to do with sex, am i wrong?
It can be both. the sentence was just implying that it was females.
"We did not talk" is given as one correct translation while "we are not talking" is marked wrong. Err??
" We are not talking " would imply to be as present continuous which till now doesn't show up. But just for the sake of it.. We are not talking translates to " nosotros/nosotras no estamos hablando "
We do not speak even though we are.
We don't speak anymore, like we used to be.
If "nosotras" is used, wouldn't you also use "hablamas"? Not sure why hablamos is used in this instance.
Because hablamas doesn't exist. The subject can be changed to depict gender -- but the verb doesn't, the verb is conjugated based on: we, us, you, they, she, he, I
The verb ending doesn't change on the basis of the gender of the people/person speaking. It remains nosotros/nosotras hablamos
What. Just what.
I agree if they say we can not speak, they are speaking right then. Maybe they mean they aren't the chatty kind of people...confusing...
cant you say conversate as well because its the same as speaking right?
They could also translate it, "We are mute"
That is speaking
They tied my lips together so my only option for speaking is either texting or writing
You can say "No hablamos" right?
