I somehow feel the need to press "Replay" over and over again. Forever alone.
Well Ed, if you feel like being a woman, you can use this sentence any time you want. For male users I recommend saying: "(Io) sono TUO." :)
or "Sono tutto tuo/tua." = "I'm all yours."
Have a nice day.
I entered Io sono tuo and Duolingo wouldn't accept it. I can't believe it's because the system knows I'm female.
Duolingo seems to think of every single situation students might face in their lives. I'm imagining a trumpet-like-achievement-sound when a woman says this to his man... Bottom line, keep the "owl" happy, people XOXO
That was the first thing that came to my mind lol Italian Jason Mraz - Io sono tua (tuo)
well we are the race of "men". if you say man then you can either claim the human race or the male gender, but if you say woman you are specifying the female gender only.
«Io sono la tua.» = “I'm the one who's yours.” would mean that the speaker is distinguishing herself or the addresse from a rival.
This left me confused too. I believe there is a rule that you can omit the article "il, la, lo, etc..." when the noun being described is singular AND referring to family.
In that case, this phrase just got more intimate hahah! Hope this helps! Ciao!
If a man is speaking to a woman, he will say Io sono tuo. If it is the other way, a woman talking to a man she will say Io sono tua
So, do we say "io sono tua" when speaking to a woman? Would it be "io sono tuo" when speaking to a man?
No, you say "io sono tua" when you are a woman and "io sono tuo" when you are a man. It doesnt matter if you are talking to a man or a woman
I'm confused; I'm seeing a lot of people saying that because it's 'io' that this means the person saying it is female... I thought that 'io' means I, only. In my mind I had - this person said to her/him that she/he is hers/his. I went back to the basics of Duo's Italian course to see if I could find anything but I couldn't. Can anyone please highlight were I can find this explanation on when 'io' has a gender determination, thanks in advance.
they aren't saying that ''io'' is female, they say that ''tua'' means that the person which is ''tua'' is a female because of ''tua'''s form
Io as a word doesn't have one form for masculine and another form for feminine. It's not the io that tells us that the speaker is feminine It's the tua that tells us that a woman is speaking. After reading the whole sentence, we see that (to repeat what you thought) "this person (now we know she is female) said to her/him that she is his/hers." And her direct words to him/her were "I am yours."
