SER TUYO -o- SER TU

¿Cuál tiene razón o posiblemente las ambas traducciones son correctos y estoy lazado hoy)

Soy tuyo chica (I´m yours girl
o
Mi chica ++yo soy tu hombre (my girl I´m your man

También una pregunta para los españoles , ++¿Cómo se cambia el significado de la oración romántica con la adición de "YO". ¿Se hace más cariñosa?

Muchísimas gracias por adelantado

Soy tuyo, chica (I'm yours, girl)

Mi chica, yo soy tu hombre (my girl, I´m your man)

"Tuyo" and "tu" have the same differences than "yours" and "your".


When one writes a pronoun in Spanish, is either to add an emphasis on the sentence or to avoid a possible subject confusion.
In this case, it is a "possessive" emphasis: I am your man, no one else is (or can be).

¡Bien! No encuentro la palabra 'tuyo' antes ahora. Me gusta.

Es correcto?: "Es tuyo. No lo quiero."
