ti and tu?
what is the difference between ti and tu?
and also, does ti have an accent on the i?
and also, are they used differently?
i would greatly appreciate it if someone answered.
First of all, look at these sentences:
You are nice This is for you.
"You" hasn't changed, right? Now with "she":
She is nice. This is for she.
What's wrong? Why do you have to say "her" instead of "she"? Well, "tú" and "ti" are the same thing:
(Tú) eres simpático Esto es para ti.
When you use most prepositions (except "entre" and "según"), you must use "ti"; without preposition, you use "tú". People who don't have these changes in their language, have to learn to cope with the English "weird" changes "I/me", "he/her" and "she/her", and so must you in Spanish.
Paralee does a fantastic job explaining the uses of "ti" (speaking about direct and indirect objects) in lesson 2.3. Check it out. I would encourage going through all of the lessons of course.
Do you mean the difference between ti and tú?
ti has no tilde. (pronoun used as object of preposition) ("you" informally)
tú (personal or subject pronoun) used as subject of verb in sentence, clause, phrase. "You" informally.
tu (short form possessive adjective meaning "your" informally)
