What is the best translation for "dimelo"? Is it a contraction of other words or is it slang?
Someone told me that this means "say it to my face" or, "say it while looking at me" but i don't understand the origin or root of the word. Help!
di = say/tell (from decir)
me = to me
lo = it/she/he
dimelo = tell it to me (or tell me)
Hope this helps!
But, then, does "say it to me" mean "tell me" ? ....As in, for example, "tell me what you want" or "what you are talking about" or "some-other-'it'" . (...........after the "what you want" or "what you are talking about" is understood and can be replaced by the 'it' pronoun, of course.)
I can imagine a small child excitedly tugging on another's arm wanting to know, perhaps, some secret just whispered by another child. ¡Dimelo! ¡Dimelo!
