Spanish Pronouns Personal Pronouns Yo and Tú
Pronouns are used to substitute nouns. We use
for yo I and for tú you. The most common place we'll use them is before the verb.
Yo estoy casada. (f) - I'm married.
Yo estoy despierto. (m) - I'm awake.
We don't have to say
and yo before the verb, since the verb tells us who is performing the action. In the examples below, tú and yo are left out without changing the meaning: tú
- I want to eat. Yo quiero comer.
Quiero comer. - I want to eat.
- You want to leave. Tú quieres salir.
Quieres salir. - You want to leave.
Usually, we leave
and yo out when no emphasis is required and where no confusion is possible, as: tú
Necesito un bol. - I need a bowl.
Estoy feliz. - I'm happy.
Estás contento. - You are happy.
