Przyznał, że zakochał się we mnie.

English Translation

He confessed that he had fallen in love with me.

Can somebody explain the “we” preposition in this sentence please?

“We” is just another form of “w”. It is used when followed by a word that starts with a consonant cluster – such as “mnie” here – and its purpose is making the clusters easier to pronounce.

That’s also why we say:

  • we wtorek (not: w wtorek)
  • we mgle (not: w mgle)
  • we Francji (not: w Francji)
