  • I don’t understand the nature of the conjunction in the following phrase:
    “comprou a casa dos avós ao tio”
    “Ao tio” is: from the uncle. How does “ao” indicate from?

    • In this case it has to be seen as a whole. “To buy from someone” is “comprar a alguém”. Sometimes, like in this sentence, the preposition a (here connected to the definite article “o”: a + o = ao) means “from”. Ela comprou a casa ao (seu) tio = She bought the house from her uncle.
