What is second person singular?
When I am reading my studies it may put it in the second singular. What does that mean in Spanish ?
In grammar, the word person refers to how the subject of a sentence relates to the conversation.
- 1st person is the person/thing doing the talking (I, we / yo, nosotros).
- 2nd person is the person/thing who is being talked to (you / tu, vosotros)
- 3rd person is the person/thing who is being talked about (he, they / él, ellos )
Whether a person is singular or plural depends on whether there is one or more than one involved. Words like I/yo are first person singular, whereas words like we/nosotros are first person plural.
Hope this helps.
It means it is talking to you as a singluar person. For example, you are reading this post right now.
