está not in the dictionary?
I was looking up the difference between esta and está and could not get a definition for está
It seems amazing because it is used allot.
Here is the difference:
Está - conjugation of the verb estar third person of the subject pronoun. el,ella and usted. Exemplo: Ella está aqui. - She is here.
esta - demonstrative pronoun - this table - esta mesa
I hope this helps.
Typically, dictionaries only have head entries for the infinitive form of verbs. To provide head entries for all conjugated forms of verbs would require several (largely redundant) entries for English and, roughly, a hundred for Spanish verbs.
Está is a conjugation of estar (to be), so look there.
Thanks 4 the replies
I looked up estar and it has the info I need.
It is not up to me, but they could have a link to estar.. there have been links for other verbs, maybe it is an oversight
looks to me like others could use the information as well.
By the way, this is not a paper dictionary. One of the benefits of online resources is that they can go beyond a paper dictionary.
This post did remind me to look in my Collins translation dictionary (paper version).
It is in there.
You use Está, like the conjugation of be in the past (was).
For Example: He was = el está, She was= ella está.
Esta is for "this" in femenine .For example : this table = Esta mesa
This house = Esta Casa
Look up "is" in the dictionary.
"Es o está"
