I think Er is pronounced like "EH-AH" and Ihr like "EEH-AH", if I understood your doubt.
I disagree with the unique translation " you all see" ... "you see" is also correct
Yes. "See" is a stative verb in the meaning in the meaning "perceive with your eyes", and doesn't usually form continuous tenses. See also http://www.perfect-english-grammar.com/stative-verbs.html .
So how might you say this instead? Say if you were asking an estate agent 'How many houses are we seeing?' Cheers.
I'm Confused. I thought Ihr used for plural you while the verb "seht" is used for he/she/it. Ohh and also for ihr!! O.k i got it I think
It is confusing, I know! "Ihr" is indeed plural (informal) "you", but it is conjugated differently to he/she/it. This is the conjugation for "sehen":
In general, if a verb is "somethingen" then er/sie/es will take "somethingt" and ihr will take "somethinget". Even when the du and er/sie/es forms are irregular (like here), the ihr form is usually regular, as are the wir and sie forms.
I think the "ihr" form takes -et only after -d and -t (ihr redet, ihr haltet), but otherwise just -t (ihr übt, ihr lauft, ihr sagt, ihr seht, ihr backt, ihr holt, ihr kommt, ihr plant, ihr hupt, ihr hört, ihr rast, ihr hievt, ihr boxt, ihr setzt).
So then it has the same ending (but possible a more regular vowel) than er/sie/es: er übt, läuft, sagt, sieht, backt/bäckt, holt, kommt, plant, hupt, hört, rast, hievt, boxt, setzt.
Because "to see" is not the same as "to look at", and German makes a similar distinction (sehen / sich ansehen), as do other languages such as French (voir / regarder).
One is more passive, the other implies more direct attention.
It's similar to the difference between "hear" and "listen" (hören / sich anhören, zuhören; entendre / écouter).
The above translation is correct. My sentence was marked wrong and the correction is given as: You all see sixteen houses.
"You see sixteen houses" and "You are seeing sixteen houses" have the same meaning and both sentences are grammatically correct and should be marked correct.
Since the update, I can't see where I have made a mistake. When I press 'Check' the correct answer covers what I have put, so that I am unable to see where I have made an error .
I use Chinese pronunciation, finally get it correct is yier, mean one and two
