Usage notes[edit]

As an affirmation, this term has in Spanish a usage that is not explicitly translated into English, since it could sound like a pleonasm, being that "positively", "affirmatively", and always related to a negation (explicit or not):

  • Él puede, yo no
    He (positively) can, I cannot.
    Esto es una fiesta.
    This sure is a party. / This is what I call a party.
