why not, "no, yo soy perdon"

5 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/JustinAlca

When you say "yo soy" in front of something, it means it is permanent. As if saying "yo soy persona"

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/David174705

That was my understanding too. So by that guide, I would say Soy soltero, or I am single, but I wouldn't say Soy caliente, because being hot or cold changes frequently.

So, 'estoy caliente' then?

I think you can't use perdon that way, it'd be like saying "no, I'm pardon" in english. You have to say, "no, perdon". But I am by no means a native speaker, so take that as you will.

lo siento means "I feel it" 'lo' = it and 'siento' = "I feel" it translates to 'I am sorry'

5 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/David174705

Think of the different times you would say I'm Sorry in English. I am told that Lo Siento is the type of sorry you would say if you heard someone was sick, or that a family member had died. Perdon, as I understand it, might be what you'd say when bumping into someone, and disculpe perhaps if you passed gas at church! I would love to hear from someone who knows for certain. I think it's an unusual example where we have less words to describe these situations in English. We usually have so many different ways of saying something in English.

https://www.duolingo.com/adia.dixon

"Yo" is not necessarily needed here...it is implied. It's sort of like saying "sorry" instead of "im sorry". They translate to almost the same thing

No it doesn't, it means "I feel it". It's the closest approximation Spanish speakers will commonly use to the English expression "I'm sorry" but it doesn't actually mean the same thing.

No yo soy siento should of been correct

https://www.duolingo.com/Casiquire

No it should not have. "Siento" means "I feel". You're saying "I feel for you" or "I feel it". Also "soy" is used for more permanent situations, like saying "I am blond", not a temporary condition like feeling sorry. Saying "yo soy siento" means "I am I feel it" which is pretty illogical.

Soy is used to express something about yourself that has lasting effect, like your name, your sex, your occupation, your general disposition, etc. Estoy would be used for effects of temporary nature, like you're feeling sick, your location at the moment, etc. Both generally mean 'I am'

Same here:(

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Casiquire

That's because "sentir" is the word for feeling. You're essentially saying "I feel for you" or "I feel it". You're not saying "I am sorry" since the Spanish don't really have a single word commonly used with the same meaning as sorry. (This makes sense when you think about it--what does "sorry" even mean? I sympathize? Why wouldn't it be a verb? No other language that I know has "sorry" as an adjective unless you're trying to say you're a sorry person in general, or an unfortunate person.) Yo estoy siento basically means "I am I feel" which doesn't really make sense.
