i havent seen it on here but demasiado actually does translates to "too much"
Would a non native speaker of Spanish know what I was talking about if I uttered these words "Es simplemente demasiado", to me it is saying "it is simply too"..................,would I be saying "too much, too many, too few, too late, etc ???
It almost seems to me that "demasiado" by itself would almost be considered, "excessive", whether it's time, need, numbers, etc. I believe what is in excess would be apparent with context. I am also curious though.
«demasiado» by itself automatically means "too much," but if you say, for example, «demasiado tarde» it would mean "too late."
P.S. I believe it would actually have to be «demasiadamente tarde»; could a native speaker confirm please?
I don't know about Spanish but in French (which is a very close relative) you can use the equivalent of "demasiado" or "too" alone like that. Like kivini 008 says, the context would give you an idea of what it is.
Could this be used in a positive context? I.e. someone being overwhelmed by generosity?
Is "demasiado" never used to refer to people? Duo doesn't accept translations using other third-person singular pronouns than "it."
Isn't "You are simply too much." valid? Usted es simplemente demasiado. <<
wow i did an English mistake. I spelled to instead of too cause i was in a hurry this afternoon, it's stupid how it punishes me for to instead of too, i feel like duolingo shouldn't punish you for a simple English mistake like this!
Well, it thinks that you are misunderstanding the word «demasiado». Computers are not smart; they are just programmed to act as such.
yes you have a point, i will just have to learn to deal with it, for a free program I shouldn't complain, i still give this program 10/10
I wanted to put It is too simple at first. Would that be "Es demásiado simple"
"too simple" = «demasiado simple»; in this sentence, we have the word «simplemente», which is the adverb "simply"
in another sentence demasiado was translated as too big and yet when I used that here, DL marked it wrong. Why?
