ASK A QUESTION Tiempo... Time or weather???
Just wondering about the word tiempo- is there a logical reason for it meaning both Time and Weather? It can be pretty confusing sometimes (see, there it is again! The word Pretty with two meanings!)
The same in English - bear (n) and bear (v), close (adj) and close (v).
theres many words in spanish thats have several meanings to them. and yes tiempo is weather and time
How did you know to use the word pretty in that context? Wasn't even confusing at all was it?
I don´t know why you´re saying this is confusing, because you understand the meaning from the content used, so we have: 1.El tiempo probable y 2. Es tiempo de irme.
This is rather confusing for Spanish students of English:
Tomorrow we are going to have good time.
this is what I often get One should think, ok, the "a" (good time) is missing, well no, they mean weather
Getting used to the context is certainly hard. It just takes practice. At first I was extremely confused when I heard the word se, because sometimes it is part of reflexive verbs and sometimes it is a conjugation of the verb saber.
The funny thing is, I can't even tell you when that stopped being a problem. The meaning just gradually became more obvious as I listened to more and more Spanish.
The word that really drives me nuts is mañana. It has two meanings, both time related. I often have to think about that one for a moment before I understand when they mean. However, that's still just a matter of context, so I'm sure that will become clearer too.
Both. Use this word in the context of the conversation/sentence. Context shouldn't be a major difficulty in this situation. I have to be careful when speaking/writing more than understanding (with this word) (vis: 'hora' versus 'tiempo').
