Te tengo a ti
I understand that the phrase "Te tengo a ti" means I have you. Is this correct? If I had not had a translation I do not think I would have been able to figure it out grammatically. The pronoun usage has me confused. Is a ti simply used for emphasis? Can anyone please help? Thanks!
Yes, that´s what it means and I believe the "a ti" is added for emphasis, as in
¿A ti te gustan las manzanas? - Do you like apples?
Hello, and welcome to the forum. Yes, I'd translate it as "I have you" or "I've got you". It is redundant (it would be complete without the "a ti" at the end), but redundancy in this sort of situation is not incorrect in Spanish. It is used for emphasis, emphasizing the person who is had.
