Translation:You are going to consider me your friend.
Thanks, this must obvious to you, but please help me understand what is the exact / literal translation of "su" in this case? And who does this "su" refers to?
'su' can mean --> your (of Usted), his, hers, their, or its. Basically 'su' means the object it modifies belongs to some one. :) Usually information is added to the sentence and context tells us to whom 'su' refers. In this sentence it could be just about anyone, but context suggests 'your.'
So the 'your, her, his, its' agrees with the object it modifies and not the person or people that possess the object? For example, if I said " They are going to sell their car" it would be "Ellos van a vender su coche" because even though ellos refers to multiple people, they only possess one car?
Oh come on DL, friendships don't form just because someone says they are now your friend :)
what's the difference between 'you are all....' and 'you all are....'? it would appear that DL considers the former wrong.
"All" does not appear in the Spanish sentence so both are incorrect. However, "you all" is a regionalism used, primarily in the southern US and areas of the West Indies, as the plural form of "you" and thus corresponds to the Spanish "ustedes".
These aren't the Droids your looking for.
.. And you're going to consider me your friend.
"you are going to consider me her friend"/"you are going to consider me your friend" work but "you are going to consider me their friend" doesn't??? am I misunderstanding "su" to mean something of the like of "her"/"him"/"their"?
Pfff... It marked me wrong for writing You are going to consider me YOUR friend, and corrected it to be HIS friend. Ridic.
