How would you say " Yes the bellhop brings the suitcase to your room" using an indirect object pronoun?
How would you say "Yes the bellhop brings the suitecase to your room" using an indirect object pronoun?
Could not the "your" in the English be an impersonal form? ...by that I mean that in this case not referring at all to the suitcase of the person who asked the question.
In other words, couldn't the answer "Yes, the bellhop brings the suitcase (sic) to your room" represent an reply telling what bellhops in this hotel do?...It is not necessarily the case that the bellhop will bring a suitcase to this particular guest's room at all -- the guest might not even have one along. Well..far-fetched, I suppose, but...a different translation might be the result.
Si,el anfitrion le lleva la maleta a su quarto
Welcome to the forum!
If you are planning on a direct translation, there is no indirect object pronoun.
Subject - the bellhop
Verb - brings
Direct object - the suitcase
adverbial prepositional phrase - to your room.
Are you sure you mean an "indirect object pronoun" and not a "direct object pronoun"?
You could substitute a pronoun for the direct object: "A bellhop brings them to your room". (direct object pronoun)
Maybe this is what you mean?
Also the word anfitrion and huesped are being used slightly different by the different spanish groups.all meaning host or bellhop.
"Yes the bellhop brings the suitecase (sic) to your room"
Sí, el botones trae la maleta a su cuarto/habitación.
Using a pronoun for the direct object:
Sí, el botones la trae a su cuarto/habitación.
The construction could be rewritten as "se la trae" (dative of benefit) but it works perfectly well without the rewrite.
Hey, Dabruce, the previous poster is correct in that a sentence analysis does not always work between languages, but in your sentence it does. You are also correct to use "indirect object pronoun" as a term; it is not considered redundant.
"Yes the bellhop brings the suitcase to your room" in and of itself contains no indirect objects, be it pronoun or noun.
If you want to say: The bellhop brings your suitcase to your room **for you* , then you need to add the indirect object pronoun.
The standard word for "bellhop" is "el botones". "host" is "anfitrión" and "guest" is "huésped", just to clarify.
