Sample text

B refers to the book as ‘this one’, éste, since it is nearer to him. A confirms that it is ‘that one’, ése (nearer B) and then she asks for a blue book that is not close to either speaker, aquél, ‘that one’. 3. Neuter form A neuter form of the demonstrative pronoun exists: esto (this) eso (that) aquello (that) 1 The neuter form refers not to a specific object but to an indeterminate idea; it is therefore neither masculine nor feminine. 52 Demonstrative adjectives and pronouns 2 The neuter form carries no accent.

Comparison with English numbers is useful up to point, but there are many differences between the languages in both the way numbers are formed and in the way they are perceived. 34 Numerals KEY IDEAS ● Spanish, like English, has cardinal, ordinal and collective numbers ● In Spanish numbers are adjectives (except for un millón and collective numbers): many of them have masculine and feminine forms ● All Spanish numbers (except uno/a) are plural and so are used with the plural form of the verb: ¿Cuánto es?

1 Subject pronouns KEY IDEAS ● ● ● Subject pronouns stand for the person, thing or idea which is the subject of the verb The subject pronoun is normally implicit in the form of the verb: thus voy means ‘I am going/coming’; comieron means ‘they ate’ The major difference between English and Spanish lies in the frequency with which subject pronouns are used: in English they are used automatically, in Spanish they are used in only a limited number of situations: for emphasis, contrast, avoidance of ambiguity and when they stand on their own: –¿Juegas al tenis conmigo?
