What is the Italian translation of 'You are friends'?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

'Sei un mio amico' is an Italian equivalent of 'You're a friend of mine'.

The verb 'sei' means '[you] are'. The subject pronoun 'tu' ['you'] doesn't have to be used because the verb form makes clear who's doing the talking here. The masculine singular definite article 'un' means 'a, one'. The masculine possessive 'mio' means 'my'. The masculine noun 'amico' means 'friend'.

All together, they're pronounced 'seh oon MEE-oh ah-MEE-koh'.

But if the friend's female, the phrase becomes 'Sei una mia amica'. It's pronounced 'seh OO-nah MEE-ah-MEE-kah'.

*The vowel 'o' of 'uno' tends to drop before a word that begins with a consonant.
You're a friend of mine in Italian is: Tu sei un mio amico.

Oceania is a general term for the island nations and territories in the Pacific Ocean. Each nation and territory has its own capital. There is no such thing as "the capital of Oceania."

How did the French language come to French Polynesia?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

When the Roman Empire ruled modern-day France, Latin was the official language. They ruled for about 600 years, so even after the Romans were defeated (486 A.D.), most people still spoke a form of Latin. The different regions developed different dialects, all Latin-based. As the Ile-de-France area (around modern-day Paris) gradually became the most powerful, its dialect started to spread. Eventually a national dialect started to develop and became modern French.
