Dessa = that...so Dessas = those Desta = This so Destas = these.
Does "Eu gosto dessas cores" = "I like those colours over there" / "I like those colours you have" or "I like these colours here" / "I like these colours I have"
Or does/can it mean both???
I imagine that a real person wold understand and that it's only on DUO that it matter?
The jump from level 10 to level 11 is SOOOOOO hard!
So this implies more of a conversation with someone vs. a straight declarative sentence ... I like these colors that you have on.... which implies those colors that you have. Right? Otherwise if I am saying I like the colors that I have (these colors here by/on me), I would use destas.... Is this close to right?
It is my understanding that "estes" and "estas" with a "t" in the middle mean "these" (near me, the speaker), while "esses" and "essas" with the double "s" mean "those" as in those near you (to whom I am speaking). Then, "aqueles" and "aquelas" mean "those" (over there, or even someplace else like at the mall, not near either the speaker or listener), though apparently in spoken Brazilian they are mixed up a bit just to make it more confusing.
