How do you say eat in Spanish?

In this brief article, we will answer the question, “How do you say eat in Spanish?” and provide information on what is Comerse in Spanish, what could be Comeria in Spanish, what would be Como and Comi as well as some synonyms for eating.

How do you say eat in Spanish?

Comer is used to say eat in Spanish. It is a verb because the Spanish meaning of comer would be “to eat”. Comer can be used in many verb tenses. 

What is Comerse in Spanish?

Comerse on the other hand would mean eating the entire food. Comerse is a reflexive form of comer. Comerse is usually followed by todo which means everything.

For instance, “¡Cómetelo todo!” would mean “eat everything”. Another meaning of it would mean to go and finish the entire thing. This imperative sentence can be usually used by elders on the youngest family members to finish the entire food.

If the younger members of the family want the elder family members to finish off the food, it would be important to use respectful language. So they can say, “¡Comaselo Abuelo!” which translates to “eat everything grandpa”.

What does Comeria mean in Spanish?

Comeria translates to “would eat”. Yo would be the word that can precede comeria which means “I”. 

So if someone asks you a question, “Would you eat?” which translates to Spanish as “comerías?” You can reply to them as, “I would eat” which translates to “Yo comeria”. 

If you have friends or family members along with you, you would need to use a collective way to address the question. 

So if the question goes, “Would you all eat?” which translates to “comerían todos”

in Spanish, you can answer as, “We would eat” which translates to “Comeríamos” in Spanish.

However, there is a catch here. The feminine form to say, “ We would eat” would be “Nosotras Comeríamos” whereas the masculine form would be “Nosotros Comeríamos”.

If you have a male friend or family member and want to speak on his behalf to say, “He would eat”, simply add Él before comería. So the sentence would go as “Él comería” (He would eat) in Spanish.

On the other hand, “Ellas comerían” would be the feminine form to say, “They would eat”. Whereas the masculine form would be “Ellos comerían”.

On the other hand, if you have a female family member or friend, you would say “Ella comeria” which would translate to “She would eat.”

On the other hand, if the word “will” is being used to indicate the future, the sentence would change again. 

So if the sentence is “You will eat”, it would translate to “Vosotros comeríais”. This would be the masculine form whereas the feminine form would be “Vosotras comeríais”.

Let us look at a way to use Comeria in a sentence as given below:

In English: He would eat anything given to him.

In Spanish: Comería todo lo que le dieran

What is Como in Spanish?

Como would mean eat in Spanish and denotes the present verb form. The sentence, “I eat” can translate to “Yo como” in Spanish.

For a plural form, “We eat” can be translated to “Nosotros comemos”. This would be the masculine form. On the other hand, “Nosotras comemos” would be referred to as feminine form.

On the other hand, “You eat” can be referred to as “Tú comes”.  The masculine form of this would be referred to as “Vosotros comes”. The feminine form of this sentence would be “Vosotras comes”.

“He eats” would be referred to as “Él Come”. On the other hand, “She eats” would be referred to as “Élla Come”.

“They eat” can be referred to as “Ellos Comen” in masculine form. Whereas “Ellas Comen” would be in feminine form

Let us look at a way to use the present verb in a sentence as given below:

In English: The lion eats the rabbit.

In Spanish: El león come la rabit (Feminine form) and El león come el rabit (Masculine form).

What is comí?

Comí would be the past tense of eat which would mean ate. So “Yo comí” would be referred to as “I ate”.

Comímos would refer to “We ate”. So the masculine form of this would be “Nosotros Comímos” whereas the feminine form would be “Nosotras Comímos”. “He ate” can be referred to as “El Comio” whereas “She ate” can be referred to as “Ella Comio”

Eating can be called comiendo. Other synonyms are consumir (consume), tomar (drink or eat), cenar, and devorar (devour).
