A little help

Here is the sentence, there is one error I can't seem to find:

Yo tengo una corbata rojo, la llevo todos las d'ias.

I think I need a me in front of the pronoun la, but I'm not sure. The apostrophe in front of a is an accent mark.

Lo mejor es:

Tengo una corbata roja, que uso todos los días.

No colocar el Yo, corbata es femenino, por lo tanto, no es rojo sino roja. El verbo correcto si tienes puesta la corbata es usar no llevar. Si usas llevar pareciera que la llevas en la mano, en ina caja o en lo que sea, menos puesta. Es mejor usar el que, pues si no parecen dos frases unidas por la coma, sin relación. Con el que, la oración es fluida.

Hi Cory
You have learnt your first valuable lesson here on the forum. Heidita is red hot where grammar is concerned. Still, it's nice to know we have experts looking out for us.

My mistake, Dylan and heidita, you are both correct.

"La" in this case is a pronoun, an object pronoun, and furthermore, a direct object pronoun. I misread, writing in haste. Good catch!

I agree with Cory, it must be "corbata rojA.

No "me" required, however, the sentence should be rewritten as follows:

"Yo tengo una corbata roja. La llevo todos los días."

It could be the following as well:

"Tengo una corbata roja. La llevo todos los días."

The comma should have been a period or semicolon and the "rojo" should be a "roja" to agree in gender. Also, the "la" is a direct object, not a pronoun. I hope that helps and don't mean to sound picky. grin
