Stressed Ownership


Recommended Posts

You can use them invariably when you want to express ownership over something, weather real property or circumstantial ownership used in colloquial tone.

So for what reason would you decide to use stressed ownership over regular? I'm sorry, I'm just struggling a bit over this about the difference between regular words used for ownership and stressed form...

Stressed ownership words can come handy to stress both the object and your ownership. For instance:

-Mi coche es rápido.

-Mio es mas rápido.

Note that in the second sentence we are already in context - we know that the second speaker is talking about cars. Another example:

Esta es mi chaqueta y aquella es la tuya.

This would not sound natural if I mentioned the "chaqueta" again. Instead, I replaced it all with "tuya". Hope this helps!
