Translation:They are not sleeping, they are standing.
How would you say in comparison "They do not sleep, she stands"?
'Zij slapen niet, zij staat.' (or 'ze')
@xMerrie - thank you! This has been a big help. I see the difference now between Staan and Staat. Thank you!
why not ZE STAANEN (STANEN) ?
'Staanen' doesn't exist :P
Most verbs end in -en but staan is one of a few verbs in Dutch that does not. Another exception is gaan (to go).
Oh, an exception. We don't have any stannen here.
