Le respondo

Hi, im reading a storing and it uses “le respondo” for “he replied”

Im confused at the use of respondo, which i thought was the yo form. Can anyone shed any light?

It looks like a typo to me, if it's supposed to mean 'he replied to him'. It should be 'le respondió'.
You may want to provide the sentence, in context, if you doubt there's a typo.

I agree with Rusty. Can you post the whole sentence?

Thanks, i think you’re correct its a typo:

The sentence from memory, im not with the story right now was”

“Buenos dias señor” - le respondo.

Or maybe its my fault, and it is infact the story teller who responded to him! Either way, thanks!

It is possible to narrate a story in the present tense and in first person. If that's the case here, no typo occurred.
