Danke, I was wondering about that.
So would the article always be "die" ?
In the nominative and the accusative case, yes. In the dative and the genitive case, it would be den and der, respectively.
Älter, technically speaking. Eltern is identical to English 'elders', and even though English and German both use the plural, even for one parent (one of the elders, ein der Eltern), there is still a singular form there.
It's plural only. There is no singular form, so there is no masculine, feminine, or neutral.
If it helps, I've heard in other discussions that plurals can almost be considered their own gender when it comes to many nominative pronouns. Often plurals follow the feminine nouns for deciding what ending to use for possessive pronouns, at least as far as I know.
"Dein" means "your", and works for Masculine and Neuter nouns "Deine" also means "your", and works for Feminine AND plural nouns.
Other possessive pronouns like "Mein/Meine", "Euer/Euere", "Unser/Unsere", and "Ihr/Ihre" work the same way.
Eltern itself is weird to me because it's the first word I've seen in this language that is always plural. So far I have been using feminine pronoun forms for Eltern and things seem to be working okay. I hope this helped!
I can see the word Reis and I know how it is pronounced. And I know it means rice. But she so sounds like she is saying reise...
She is definitely saying reise. When you click on the word alone it is just the one syllable
Can we also say "Essen meine Eltern Reis?"
Because "Ich liebe dich" can also be written as "Liebe ich dich" right?
Am I way off?
What if a person only has a mom or a dad(single parent), can he/she say meine Eltern?
I grew up with a single dad my mom died when i was 2 i am also a single mom never married
Eu não disse a frase completa e identificaram como correto, favor corrigir esse erro
eat - ear -- now, that's a clear typo... This is a bug. If the typo makes a regular word, it's considered as wrong translation, and I guess it's not checked if it can be a possible typo. It's frustrating, and extra frustrating when learning on a smartphone where typos are very frequent.
I guess this is not the place where I should report this problem, but not knowing where, I decided to report it here. Please move it where appropriate. Thank you.
