      whats damay termana mean?

      1. motricio profile image61
        motricioposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        I'm sorry but damay termana doesn't sound like a Spanish sentence.
        Can you please verify, it could: dame y termina?
        neutral

    I want to learn these words, please, for starters:

    I
    Me
    My
    Mine
    You
    Yours
    He
    Him
    She
    Her
    His
    Hers
    They
    Them
    Theirs
    Our
    Ours
     
    Formulating sentences seems tricky.  It seems that Spanish is speaking in reverse compared to how I would say it in English.  What's the reason for this and what are the exceptions?

      His   =   El(Possessive pronoun) [His hand - La mano de el/ Su mano]
      Hers  =   De ella(Possessive pronoun) [Her hand - La mano de ella/ Su mano]
      They  =   Ellos(Pronoun) [They are - Ellos son/ Ellos estan]
      Them  =   Ellos(Pronoun) [I saw them - Los vi a ellos/ Los vi]
      Theirs  =   De ellos(Possessive adjective) [It was Theirs - Era de ellos]
      Our   =   Nuestro(Possessive pronoun) [Our future - Nuestro futuro]
      Ours  = Nuestro (Possessive adjective) [Is ours - Es nuestro]

      motricioposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      mmm yes is reverse but only for questions.
      Grammar convection for a present tense sentence would be:
      [Noun]+[Verb in present]+[Complement]
      IE: You + are + a teacher
      Spanish: Tu + eres + un profesor

      But for questions:
      [Verb in present]+[noun]+[Complement]
      IE: Are + you + a teacher?
      Spanish: Tu eres un profesor?
      -Same grammar rule, pronunciation changes in Questioning intonation, but no change in structure.
      You could change structure as English, but it would sound rare.

          Thanks for posting these words in spanish. Just a bit of information, here in our country, most of those words are very much alike the way we say it in Filipino. One advantage of being colonized by Spaniards for almost 300 years is that we get to adopt most of their Spanish terms in our Filipino dialect.
          I myself thanked them so much because I get to learn to Speak Spanish from self study. It has not been very difficult for me because of some similarities on our language.

          Por eso en este momento, yo consigo la paga buena como un Filipina que es un español que habla a agente en un centro de la llamada.

          (That is why right now, I am getting good pay as a Filipina who is a Spanish speaking agent in a call center.)

          Que Dios te bendiga!

    Thnx Izzy. When I get home i'll add the remaining ones and the examples smile

  18. motricio profile image61
    motricioposted 7 years ago

    Stop   (Verb: To stop) parar/detener [Stop the car - Deten el carro]
    Go     (Verb: To go) Ir [I go on Tuesdays - Yo voy los martes]
    Now    (Time adverb) Ahora [I need it now - Lo necesito ahora]
    Then   (Time adverb) Entonces [And then it stopped - Y entonces se detuvo ]
    Here   (Place adjective) Aqui [Here it is - Aqui esta]
    There  (Place adjective) Alli/Alla [There it is - Alli/alla esta]
    Come   (Verb: to come) Venir [Come here Ana - Ven aca Ana]
    Stay   (Verb: to stay) Quedar [Stay here Ana - Quedate aqui Ana]

    Over   (Different uses, 1st to start: time adverb)
            Acabado/terminado/culminado
        -> [Is over - Se acabo/termino]

    Should  (Unreal tense/Conditional) Debería
            [Should i go - Debería ir?/Sera que voy?/Suppositions]

    Should not  (Unreal tense/Conditional-Negative form) Verbo+[ía]
            [Or should i not? - O no debería ir?/Suppositions]

    Could  (Unreal tense/Conditional-Permission ask) Podría/pudiera
            [Could i go? - Podría ir?/Permission ask]

       -> + Should [If i could go, I should ask Ana now]
            [Si pudiera ir, debería preguntale a Ana ahora]

    For the remaining ones I think it should work
    But I recommend you to stick to the conjugation table for the present  tense first, because if you mess tenses uses, you would get confused when you need to speak.
    Conjugation table will teach when to use verbs termination and you will learn also to differentiate between a regular verb and the irregular verbs, this is very important thing as it is in English also for Spanish.
    Start with verb To Be in present tense, is the most used in both

    I have a question. Why is it that people who speak Spanish always put an upside down exclamation mark or an upside down question mark in front of sentences?

    Example: ¡Buenas noches!
    Example: ¿Cómo estás?

    Just something I always wondered, thanks smile

    1. motricio profile image61
      motricioposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Alessia is a gramar rule for Spanish
      In exclamation grammar and also questions, you need to use opening and closing.
      English doesn't aply that grammar rule, we can use only a closing.
      - IE: Any other questions?, ¿Alguna otra pregunta?

    In spanish:

    Me da muchísima pena con su comentario tan fuerte, se supone que entre gustos no hay disgustos y veo que arremetes y atacas de forma grosera a un personaje del cómic.

    Espero que lo analices desde otro punto de vista.

    Cuando ellos hicieron los esfuerzos en realizar comics, dibujos animados y hasta producción de cine y televisión acerca de Supergirl, ¿no le parece que esos esfuerzos no valen nada?
