Usage notes[edit]

  • Unlike most Spanish prepositions, entre governs the nominative and not the prepositional case with pronouns. Thus:
  • 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:
  • entre = "among themselves"
  • entre y sus amigos = "between himself and his friends"
