The sentence can have either meaning, his/hers or yours. You have to know from the context whom the speaker means. If you speak to someone in the polite form (lei and third person verb forms), then you have to go whole hog and use the reflexive pronoun si and the possessive suo.
"suo" can mean "your" (formal singular) but it says it's a mistake. To me, it makes more sense to say "it's not yours" after "the sandwich is mine" instead of "not his/hers".
Is correct to also say "Il panino è mio, non suo"? I thought that the original "Il" covered all of that.
The voice sounds like it's saying il panino 'el' mio, is it standard to merge e and il together to el?
They mark "The roll is mine, not his" as wrong, even though 'roll' is given as one meaning of panino.
not quite sure, but it sounds better, lolol in spanish we would also say ....es el mio it is mine
I provided 'sandwich' and duolungo gave correct answer as being bun which isn't a listed definition.
I put 'The sandwich is mine, not yours' and it was marked as wring. I though Suo, like Su in Spanish, could mean his, hers or yours.
Does anyone know to whom I could speak Italian with? Is there a site? Grazie
Pro tip: wait until you have had some decent practice here and when going there skip lessons, go to practice, scroll down to chat, or help others with their english/spanish/portugese/ or whatever other language you know
just i have one cuestion..... since when the translation of panino means sandwich instead of bread, because originally i learn it that way
I think "panino" is usually used to mean sandwich, although literally it means "little bread" (as in, a roll instead of a loaf). In fact, you see it now in American restaurants that have a special grill to make Italian-style sandwiches --except they always say "panini" for one sandwich, which drives me crazy!
In this case, the proper english is his. Him would be for a direct object. As in: I love him or I heard him. His is possessive - His hers ours yours etc.
Isn't "panino" the word for lunch? Why didn't it warn me that this time it was going to be "bun"?
I don't think this is repeating, though it may be mentioned on other pages... "non il Suo" with capital 'S' is what makes it "not yours." Right?
I cannot fisish this session because the audio for this sentence does not play
"suo" can mean his, hers, its.
How can one tell which is the correct answer?
The sandwich is mine, not his, Il panino è il mio,non il suo. Which the sentences is masculine..
Come mai!!! Dicono che ho sbagliato.
