Marco, is that you'!. . . Marco said:

Didn't get you, Natasha. What do you mean for "is that you"?

:

Can we not write it as "tal es el amor que tengo a ti"?

Don't think so, but you're getting too deep for me. Search for "reduplication" and you'll see plenty more on the forum.

I think this should be the difference between English and Spanish. But what I wrote is close to English. If "te" is used here, then that would be duplicated word refering to "you".
But I need to read "reduplicated" in the reference.

Ese Diccionario de Dudas dice esto:

5.1. Si el complemento tónico es también un pronombre personal, la coaparición del pronombre átono es obligatoria, tanto si el complemento es directo como indirecto: Me castigaron a mí; A ti te dieron el premio (no 'Castigaron a mí; 'A ti dieron el premio).

But I just didn't get why there was no word between "te" and "tengo" if you translated it to "I have for you".

te is an indirect object pronoun, so (to my knowledge) it's always going to go next to the verb. I think you could also say:Tal es el amor que te tengo a ti.

Can we not write it as "tal es el amor que tengo a ti"?

Marco, the English sentence sounds better like this: Such is the love that I have for you. (Pretty close to the Spanish, actually.)

Thank you, Natasha.
Your translation sounds much better than mine. But I just didn't get why there was no word between "te" and "tengo" if you translated it to "I have for you". That is why I got confused when I was trying to translate it to English.

Cecy:

Are you writing a poem?

That "yo" definitely sounds unnecessary... and ugly.That "eso" doesn't quite add up. I'd write at the end: "...por ti. Tal es el amor que te tengo" (sounds almost like a poem).

Hi lazarus,

I didn't get the meaning of the last part. What does "tal es el amor que te tengo" mean?
"This is such the love that I have you"? It sounds weird unless I made mistaks in the translation. Would you please give me any suggestions?

Thank you,

Marco

I think that's pretty good. I don't think the "yo" is necessary here, though.

By the way, "until" has only one L.
