"We are not listening to them."
Translation:My ich nie słuchamy.
Can this not be stated as 'Ich nie słuchamy' ? Is 'my' always necessary? Also, putting 'ich' at the end sounds strange.
"Ich nie słuchamy" is more emphatic than "Nie słuchamy ich" but both are correct.
No. "słuchać" takes Genitive, the Genitive version is "ich".
"je" is possible for Accusative. But even if the verb took Accusative, it would change to Genitive as it's negated here.
why is the "my" necessary? I wrote "ich nie sluchamy" but it was counted wrong, the "my" underlined as wrong because missing.
The most natural way to say it is probably "Nie słuchamy ich". My next choice would be "My ich nie słuchamy", which emphasizes 'we' by putting it explicitly in the sentence. And basically those are the only two word orders I would use here.
"Ich nie słuchamy" is like "Them we do not listen to". Very strong and really not natural emphasis on 'them'. Basically, putting a pronoun in a different case than Nominative at the beginning of the sentence is rarely natural.
I thought "nie sluchamy ich" was my first try, but I am not really shure :o/
But thank you for the explanation. That helps.
