Usage notes

edit
  • The use of this pronoun, along with os, in ordinary spoken language is confined to the Philippines, Equatorial Guinea, and Spain, excluding southwestern regions of Spain and most of the Canary Islands. Elsewhere in the Spanish-speaking world, it is found only in oratory, legal and religious language. However, Andalucia uses its associated verb forms with Ustedes.
