the use of pronouns
I am confused about this e.g. Me gusta la casa Te gusta el cuarto
Why is it 'la' in the first sentence, but 'el' in the second, why does it not be 'la casa' and 'lo cuarto', or 'ella casa' and 'el cuarto'?
Watch out. It looks like you're confusing the use of Pronouns and Definite Articles.
Me gusta la casa
Instead of using "Yo gusta" with the verb gustar, we use pronouns. So instead of Me gusta, te gusta, nosotros gusta, etc: we use Me gusta, te gusta, nos gusta, etc. The same is true with your second sentence.
The reason we use "el" and "la" in your sentences is because, in your example, they are functioning as DEFINITE ARTICLES, (ex. the word "the")
**Te gusta la casa
Pulling it all together.
Spanish uses the same words for "the" as for the third person masculine and feminine pronouns. By looking at how the word is used, you can tell if it reads as "the", or a pronoun.
Did that clear it up for you? happy learning!
