Q: What did the terrorist shop say ?
A: Ich bin Laden.
Haha das ist zu lustig!!
Could you use the word besitzt here for owns, instead of hat?
I would even say that's more exact.
What is the difference between Geschaft and Laden?
They can both mean "shop" (e.g. "Schuhgeschäft" = "Schuhladen"), but they are not always interchangeable.
Hat means has but many words have multiple meanings. He has a shop is pretty much the same thing as He owns a shop, at least where I live.
What about gehört and besitzt?
gehören : to belong
besitzen : to own
Es gehört mir : it belongs to me
I mean, if you own a shop, it also belings to you....
Yes but you'd turn around subject and object in English as in german: He owns a shop, the shop belongs to him. You can't say he belongs the shop. Same in German.
Though saying "he belongs to the shop" could be used as a turn of phrase to call him a workaholic
I thought shop was Geschichte
doesnt that mean story or history??
In other questions, laden means stall
So why einen again?
The noun is masculine and it's in the Accusative.
Hat means has and not own?
If you say you have a shop, it implies you own the shop.
Ehat is the difference between laden and geschaft?
Laden moreso means 'shop/store' whereas Geschäft also means 'business'
Obama Bin Laden!
'He has a shop' should be accepted surely?
'He keeps a shop' is current UK English usage, if a little old fashioned and should be allowed.
You can keep a shop without owning it... I think owns/has are the only reasonable english correlates in this case
My understanding is that "keep" is more of a verb analogue for "work" or "tends" or "operates"; not so much for owns/has (e.g. someone may own a shop, but not work there, instead hire others to work for them)
He has a “Laden!”
According to the german english thesaurus, Laden means warehouse or a storing facility, whereas Geschäft means store or a trading facility. The correct form should then be "Er hat ein Geschäft".
Then the thesaurus is wrong. "Laden" means store or shop. A storage facility is "ein Lager"
Why is there never a question related to sex or a add with sex in it.
