Has anyone mentioned, Greg, that "ti" would only be used following a preposition. Other such pronouns are:

a mí

a ti (the one you are interested in, I guess this isn't "other":--)

a sí

And have you yet come across conmigo, contigo, and consigo. I really like those!!

There are threads here in the forum that can help you understand why a Spanish-speaking person would say something like this, too:

¿A ti te gusta español?

Este es tu libro. (tu - yours) ¿A que hora te despiertas? (reflexivo - despertarse)

tu is a short form possessive adjective (your...familiar)

tú is a personal or subject pronoun used as a subject of the verb

ti is an object of a preposition pronoun

te can be an object of the verb pronoun or a reflexive pronoun (used with pronomimal verbs-it is not restricted to reflexive use only)

I123 gave you examples for all execpt tú.

Esto es tu libro. (tu - yours)

Why isn't this...?

Éste es tu libro.

I thought esto was used when we don't know what specific noun "this [one]" specifically refers to. Here we know its antecendent (libro).

Some examples:

Esto es tu libro. (tu - yours)

compré este libro para ti. (para ti - for you)

No te conozco (I don't know you)

¿A que hora te despiertes? (reflexifo - despertarse)
