"It" as a Subject Pronoun
I'm just wondering if there is a way to say "it" as a subject pronoun. I know that usually subject pronouns aren't used, but I just want to know if there is a way. (I know "lo" means "it" but "lo" is a direct object pronoun.) For example, " It is red."
Aga, you would just say:
it is red = es rojo
It rains = llueve
It is funny= es divertido
We do not often use subject pronouns, but we certainly never use impersonal subject pronouns
Subject pronouns don't get a whole lot of exercise in Spanish so I expect I'd just say "es rojo/tinto" or whatever Red River comes out as. I forget. However if the context is clear, for example you've just been saying something about your credit card payments you could correctly follow up with "Lo es insportable." or some such.
...and what I meant to say too: "lo" is not a direct object pronoun (exclusively). "Lo" is a word which is used as a subject, as a direct object and as the definite article. The last is exemplified by phrases like "lo bello", "lo mismo" etc.
"Lo" is a word which is used as a subject
Sorry geo, you got that completely wrong, lo is never a subject pronoun.
