‘-ISIMO(A)’ and g/c/z:

‘-ISIMO(A)’ and g/c/z To express extremes with the most adjectives, drop the final vowel and add the ending – isimo (a). The adjective must agree with the gender and number of the noun it modifies. La idea de Rosa es interesantisima . Rosa’s is very (extremely) interesting. When the last consonant is c , g , or z , spelling changes are required. c > qu rico (a) ri qu isimo (a) g > gu largo(a) lar gu isimo (a) z > c feliz feli c isimo (a)

Affirmative & negative words:

Affirmative & negative words Notice that alguno (a) and ninguno (a) must match the gender of the noun they replace or modify. Alguno and Ninguno have different forms when used before masculine singular nouns. If a verb is proceeded by no, words that follow must be negative. A double negative is required in Spanish when no proceeds the verb. However, if a negative word, such as nunca or nadie , comes before the verb, a second negative is not needed. Negative: Nada ~ Nothing Nadie ~ No One Ningun ~ None Ninguno (a) ~ Not Any Nunca ~ Never Tampoco ~ Neither Affirmative: Algo ~ Something Alguien ~ Someone Algun / Alguno (a) ~ Same Siempre ~ Always Tambien ~ Also Algo de tomar ? Por ahora , nada mas. Las chicas quieren algun postre , pero Carlos no quiere ninguin postre . No quiero nada. Carlos no quiere ninguino . Nadie quiere postre . Las chicas nunca comen en casa.

Pero VS. Sino:

Pero VS. Sino Pero & Sino are translated mostly as "but" or "but rather", but they are much more than that. They can be translated as "however", "nevertheless" etc. ​ Maria es muy intelegente pero nada simpatica . ​ Maria is very smart but not kind.​ ​ El dia esta sloeado pero hace frio . ​ It is a sunny but cold day. ​ ​ You can also find ' sino ' in the structure 'no sólo ... sino ' (which could be translated as 'not only...but also'). If what is being mentioned is an object, you would say: 'No sólo ... sino también ' and if what follows is a clause you would say: 'No sólo ... sino que ( también / además )'.​ ​


DOp /IOP/Se DOP: “what is being verbed ?” IOP: “to whom or for whom?” Me Nos Te Os Lo/La Los/Las SE: that the 'se' form of the indirect object pronoun can either refer to a third person singular or plural when both (direct and indirect object) pronouns are used .
