"No, no es mi camisa."
Translation:No, it is not my shirt.
because that would be, no eso no es mi camisa
It is different from that even in english. that shows that it is close and you are most likely signaling it, It does not imply the same meaning.
I have not yet learned how to say "that is" in Spanish, but whenever someone says "no es" something, or "es" something, es means "it is." The "it" is hidden.
Got this one right after "Disculpe, tu camisa por favor". Sounds like dialogue from a very polite robbery.
They mean the same thing to me. There is a way to say "No, the shirt is not mine" = "No, la camisa no es mía"
There's a difference. The subject of the lesson's sentence is "it." The subject of your sentence is "the shirt."
Translated into English, this would be a double negative and grammatically incorrect. Therefore, I contest that 'It's not my shirt' should be acceptable.
But, does anyone ever ask you if something is yours? What do you answer? Most people would say "no" first, and then clarify. Thus the extra "no" at the beginning:
Mom: "Whose shirt is this?" (holds up a shirt)
Everyone: (mumbles "no" s or "I don't know" s or shrugs)
Little sister: "Hey Sara, is it your shirt? You said you lost one."
Sara: "No, it is not my shirt" (or "No, that's not my shirt")
Allieo90210, this is simply incorrect. There is no double negative here. The first no is the answer to the question, which is "No" in English. The second no is for "not," creating the negative verbal construction. Two possible answers to the question "Is it your shirt?" are these:
- Yes, it's my shirt. (Sí, es mi camisa.)
- No, it's not my shirt. (No, no es mi camisa.)
There is no double negative here, no matter how you interpret this. The two consecutive no's have totally different grammatical functions and both are required. Duolingo should not accept a single no here.
I said, " No, this is not my shirt" and it said that I was wrong. I think it's perfectly fine. I do have a problem with that as both should be allowed.
I thought that I used the word blouse for camisa in another exercise. They are somewhat interchangeable, although not all shirts are blouses.
These discussions are often so helpful, I appreciate everyone's comments!! I also thoroughly enjoyed reading Allieo90210 and HolyT's bickering in this thread. Allieo90210 I think you meant well but HolyT got you beat every time. Just sayin'.
