# What is the difference between “algo” and “alguna cosa”?

6 days ago

What is the difference between "algo" and "alguna cosa", since they both mean "something"? How do you know which one to use?

¿Estás mirando algo en la tele? Are you watching something on TV?

¿Es alguna cosa de comer? Is it something to eat?

¿Ha visto alguna cosa? Have you seen something?

Hay algunas cosas que no te he contado. There are some things I haven't told you.

In addition, when should de follow algo?

Te compré algo de comer. I bought you something to eat.
