    Hello again,

    I've come across two sentences that, if translated into Russian, will sound more or less the same only that my textbook says there is a difference:

    Bende para var - according to my book, "I've got money (on me / now).

    Benim param var - I have money (in general. Maybe I have a bank account or something like that).

    As I'm accustomed to checking and double-checking everything, I'd like a native speaker to confirm the above statements, lütfen.


    Thanks in advance.:)

    I confirm that.
    But I also find bende para var to be more informal/colloquial. And that's my two cents.

    You're a great help, Rallino.

    Thank you.
