Consider the following sentence:

I'm in your country, therefore I'll speak Spanish.

Notice the emphasis is on 'your'. How would this translate to Spanish?

  • Esto en el pais tuyo. It's a nontraditional enough statement to draw attention to the possessive adjective.

With a big accented TU. (Like you were about to shout it.)

Estoy en TU país, por lo tanto hablaré Español.

  • Haha. I must really be over thinking things. It's really that simple, huh? Jan 31, 2016 at 2:22
  • As a native speaker, I can tell it's just as simple as that.
