I found the chat on this webpage to be extremely helpful: https://en.m.wikibooks.org/wiki/German/Grammar/Pronouns It lists all pronouns in all cases, genders, and number (singular or plural). Notice, however, that the lady column on the right (possesives) only lists stem. That is because the ending on the possessive changes worth the case and gender (just like adjectives, or the articles "der" and "ein". For the dative case plural, for instance, you would say "den Großeltern" for "the grandparents". Therefore, you would use "unseren Großeltern" for "our grandparents".
In the same way, the dative "dem Hund" would use possessives "meinem", deinem", "seinem", "unserem" in dative, and "der Straße" (dative feminine singular) would use possessives "meiner", deiner", "seiner", "unserer", in the dative case..
But we write Die Eltern, according to this, in dative it should be der eltern
Nominative: die Eltern Genitive: der Eltern Dative: den Eltern Accusative: die Eltern
You are thinking of the feminine gender. For example, the nominative die Frau becomes der Frau in the dative case.
But die Eltern is not feminine, it is plural. It becomes den Eltern in the dative case.
i think this is dative... i presume helfen just calls for the dative. usually i think of the dative as doing something TO something and in this case you're not "helping TO our grandparents" but you are "[giving] help TO our grandparents"' if you think of it that way
I don't feel like the dative case is well explained on Duolingo. Can someone please explain to me why it's unseren and not unserer?
masculine dative: unserem
neuter dative: unserem
feminine dative: unserer
plural dative: unseren
Großeltern is plural.
Nominative: die Großeltern (plural) => Dative: den Großeltern (plural) Means unseren , not unserer
Am I wrong?
Can anybody explain me the difference between "unseren, unserer and unserem"? I honestly don't get it.
`Why do we have write ' unseren ' with an end ' N'? I think that it has to be without 'N'? #Unsere
We are helping to our grandparents was not accepted? I am not a native English speaker of course but I think it is correct
