Usage notes edit

The personal pronoun can also be used as a "dative of solidarity" or "interesse" in colloquial register, meaning that either the interlocutor or the emissor is inserted into the action even when they don't have a direct intervention, so either to gain the interlocutor sympathy or to show personal interest:

    • c. 1295, R. Lorenzo, editor, La traducción gallega de la Crónica General y de la Crónica de Castilla, Ourense: I. E. O. P. F, page 126:
      Disse entõ o conde a el rey dom Garçia: -Rey, nõ as por que teer nẽhũu destes que comigo som presos, que por mj̃ soo aueras quantos y som, et nõ lles faças nẽhũu mal, ca elles nõ che am y culpa nẽhũa.
      Then the count said to king Don García: «King, you don't have to keep as prisoners none of the ones that are with me, because just by me you'll find out how many they are, and don't yo do them any harm, because they are not to blame [to you] on this»
    • 1596, anonymous author, Diálogo de Alberte e Bieito:
      eche cousa de chorar
      It is [to you] a thing for crying
    Gustoucheme moito ese libro.I liked very much that book [to you].
    Onte funche por Ourense.Yesterday I went [to you] to Ourense.
