basics one of italian
I'm a bit confused. Shouldn't it be "Io sono una donna" to say "i am a woman" instead of "Sono una donna"?
I think they explained. Because "Sono" is the conjugation of "I" you don't have to write io. Same goes with "You" and "they" etc.
(io) sono (tu) sei (lui/lei) e (noi) siamo (voi) siete (loro) sono
I would add that, the form without the personal pronoun is not only grammatically correct in Italian, but also more common. In Italian if you "add" the personal pronoun, very often you do that for emphasis.
