"Somos nosotras."

December 15, 2012


Is this a phrase that's commonly used between Spanish-speaking people? Can someone provide a context that this phrase would be used in please?

December 26, 2012

Two women are visiting their friend; they knock on the door, the friend says "Who's there?" and they respond "Somos nosotras" which in English would be "It's us".

"It's us" makes sense...but this exercise also said this means "we are us." There is no time in English you would ever use the term "we are us."

January 7, 2013

Yes, that is right! "We are us." is not English.

January 12, 2013

What does "we are us" mean?

December 15, 2012

it is us, remember... like ... it's me, hello

December 15, 2012

The English in the translation is faulty. Should be "It is we." (Like "It is I"). One uses the subjective rather than the objective form of the pronoun.

December 19, 2012

It should take both at the very least.

Why doesn't it mean that we are just females?

December 18, 2012

"we are just females" is from "it is us." Say you (as a female) and another female were in a conversation, and someone asked, "Who are women?" "It is us (with the feminine "us," or in this case, nosotras.

i would assume "somos nosotros" would mean "it is us" if there was a guy in the group?

January 12, 2013

doesnt somos mean we are not it is??

December 22, 2012

So as a man you would never say this only a woman would?

January 3, 2013

Correct, only a woman in an all-female group.

January 6, 2013

Thanks, though what if it was a mixed group (i.e. one male and one female)

January 8, 2013

Than you or we must use the masculine: somos nosotros.

January 14, 2013

yeah What does it mean? ohhhhh((

December 15, 2012

it's like saying- "hey..!! It's us..."

December 16, 2012

Does this sentence really make any sense?

December 18, 2012

It does make sense - it means 'this particular group- we - are women.- as- It's just us - your girl friends - no men around.

December 18, 2012

i agree.. this seems to be a colloquialism rather than a direct translation

December 28, 2012

Some things in spanish are irrational. In english this is true also, but why would one say good day, to mean good morning. And this, who say we are us. That is obvious.

I take spanish at school and I was taught that it's "nosotras somos" (the subject pronoun before ser). Is that the same thing as "somos nosotras"? If not, then which way is accurate?

January 3, 2013

"nosotras somos" means "we are" but "somos nosotras" means "it's us".

January 6, 2013

I don't understand why this doesn't translate as "We are". Would that be "nosotras somos" (i.e. the other way round)? If not, how would you say "We are"?

January 26, 2013

Ok... I am kinda confused... is "Somos" feminine?
