ASK A QUESTION What does ¿Cómo no? mean ?
What does ¿Cómo no? mean ?
a: No voy a la fiesta (I'm not going to the party)
b: ¿Cómo no?!! (Why not? / What do you mean you're not going?)
a: ¿Te gustaría ir al cine? (Would you like to go to the cinema?)
b: Cómo no!! (Of course I would)
a: ¿Cómo no te gusta el chocolate? (How come you don't like chocolate?)
b: Oh! It's too sweet for me...
You mean like: ¡Sí! ¿Cómo no?
Then it would be for when we say in English: Sure! Why not?
It can also be used as sarcasm.
Arrested person: Soy inocente! (I am innocent)
Police Man: Como no! (Of course you are)
Try putting it in the "Translator" and see what you get.
"Como no" can also actually mean "of course". I had heard the phrase a few times before knowing it meant that, and man, how misleading. :p
Yes. You often hear waiters saying it after you've ordered, as a way of saying 'certainly'.
Of course. Yes.
It means "Why not?" in that context. As in "Sure, why not?" (Sí, ¿como no?).
