I heard it wrong. I thought it was bebemos XD
HE SAID NOSOTRAS. He said it, I heared it, I writ it, and they wronged it. No fair!
Shouldn't it be "Nosotras" because od female cats?
So men can't have female cats. ;)
Nosotras has nothing to do with gatas. Change nosotras for women and men or boys and girls and you will see that both can have male and female animals.
Thanks - I get easily confused! But when would we use 'Nosotras' then? I think I'm missing somethig :)
Nosotras y nosotros is your we, same than ellos and ellas is your they and vosotros y vosotras your you (all)
And when we don't know the sex of the person we automatically use 'nosotros' but if we knew it was women, we would say 'Nosotras'. Have I got it now? (and thanks for your help!)
oops - 'of'
Youre thinking of nuestra/nuestro?
Its good you remmebered that, however thankfully, present tense verbs are much simpler
This is the weak portion of duolingo. Colombian gf perfectly understands me and says I pronounce well but not according to duolingo....
i was typing this while my cats were trying to walk on the laptop
Again. I cannot clearly understand the male speaker. It sounded like "nosotras" to me. I just checked again, he definitely said "nosotras", not "nosotros".
Can I say "own"?
No. Having and owning are not synonymous.
WHY GATAS, NOT GATOS? FEMALE CATS?
Yes in this case the cats are female.
This has been confusing me as well. I always learned to use gatos.
Yes, so have I. But I suppose there will always be exceptions to what we learned outside of the classroom... Good, or bad, do you think?
Nosotros (we of unspecified gender) tenemos (we have) gatas (female cats). If possessive were involved, then nuestro/a/s gato/a/s would have to agree, independent of who owns them.
I thought tenemos itself mean "we have". Shouldnt itf be tenemos gatas
It could be, but using the pronoun is also correct, and could be there for emphasis.
I said we have female cats because Gata is a female cat right?
I got it wrong when i typed in the right thing
I thought tenemos was masculine?
I don't think the verb tener has a gender. It's conjugated to mean: 'we have'. It will always be tenemos.
In "fast" talk, the speaker said, "Nosotros". In "slow" talk, he said "nosotras", which is what I wrote and I was marked wrong. No fair.
Now whats wrong this time with gato =cat?
