SpanishEdit

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈentɾe/, [ˈẽn̪t̪ɾe]

Etymology 1Edit

From Latin inter, from Proto-Indo-European *h₁enter (between).

PrepositionEdit

entre

  1. between
  2. among, amongst

Usage notesEdit

  • Unlike most Spanish prepositions, entre governs the nominative and not the prepositional case when used with pronouns:
  • entre yo y mi hermano = "between me and my brother"
  • entre y ellos = "between you and them"
  • Because se does not exist in the nominative, however, the normal prepositional form is used instead:
  • entre = "among themselves"
  • entre y sus amigos = "between himself and his friends"
