Question for braulio:

Is this "What is it?" in the sense of "What is this?", or in the sense of "What is wrong?"

brauliobezerra 2010-06-06 18:03 link permalink

What is this.

And I can confirm Portuguese, Spanish and French mean the same thing. But I guess I adopted this sentence just for linking purposes. Does it feel unnatural? I could change it.

FeuDRenais 2010-06-06 18:07 link permalink

"What is this?" would be much better. What you have now is not unnatural, but the most common use for this expression is in the context of "What's wrong?" or "What's happening?" (without the context, I assumed that it had this meaning)

e.g.: Your friend looks worried, and you ask him "What is it?"

In the majority of cases, I feel like this would be the meaning. I don't think we'd have to fix much though. It looks like a lot of the languages here have the right translation :-)

Cainntear 2011-05-06 11:42 link permalink

"What is it"

"What" and "it" are both weak/unstressed words, so "is" takes the tonic stress in the sentence. Because "is" is stressed, it can't be contracted.
