ASK A QUESTION How do you show possession in spanish in four different ways?
I am taking Spanish two in homeschool and I need help expressing possession in four different ways in Spanish.
That helps a little, except it has to be four different poossessions for each one of the problems I posted. I'm sorry for not punctuating the first two posts properly. I don't normally write correctly unless it's for my English school work. Thank you for telling me to punctuate everything correctly.
Maybe you mean this:
Mi casa es grande. (possessive adjective - short form)
Las reservaciones vuestras son a las ocho. (possessive adjective - long form)
Es la silla de él. (possession without a possessive adjective)
Tu coche es mejor que el mío. (possessive pronoun)
Can you give us your attempt at the answer first, and then maybe we can help you?
I'm having to retake the test for this section of Spanish 2 and the homeschool academy said I could get help from somebody or the Internet. I've been online all day looking for help and still can't find anything.
I'm not sure what you're asking exactly. Do you know what they are in English? Is it like his, hers, mine, ours?
The expressions I have to show are for my jacket, Pablo's shirt, our car, and your suits.
my jacket, Pablo's shirt, our car, and your suits.
Each one of these words can be looked up in the dictionary. We can't help with homework unless you've given it a try first.
Look them up and post your answers here. We'll take a look and help you with any corrections.
Here´s one for starters.
La camisa pertenece a Pablo.
The only thing it keeps pulling up is "mi chaqueta". Believe me I wouldn't be asking for help if I hadn't already tried. I've taken the test once and failed.
Here would be four different ways
to say that my parents house is blue:
1). La casa de mis padres es azul - My parent's house is blue
2). La casa suya es azul - Their house is blue
3). Su casa es azul. Their house is blue
4). La suya es azul. Theirs is blue
The only thing it keeps pulling up is "mi chaqueta".
You're right. That's a correct translation for "my jacket."
Thank ya'll for the help. I think I've got it now.
Since it calls for four tranlations would "la chaqueta de mi", "la chaqueta mia", and "la mia" be right for the other three?
