Why is it "den Tisch" instead of "der Tisch"? I want to understand, please.
At least now I'm relating the direct object with the accusative case. Good thing I paid attention to my English grammar classes.
I just cannot hear the difference between "magst" and "machst". And either word would make sense here (especially considering some of DL's other sentences....)
I have the same problem. I put both words into Google Translate and hit the speaker button and heard a minor difference, but they still sound almost identical to me. The "ch" in machst is pronounced like the ch in Loch Ness Monster. The g in magst is pronouced more like a K from the back of your throat. Very similar sounds. I wonder if native German speakers can hear a distinct difference.
I'm getting confused on when to use Mag, Magst, and Mog (sorry no character to use). I now know that I and He "mag" but when do I use Magst and Mogt?
ich mag, du magst, er mag. wir mögen, ihr mögt, sie/Sie mögen. In Apple: ö = alt+u followed by o. ß is alt + s. In windows: shift+"+o. ß is alt+225.
This indefinite article "den" is from dative, right? Because the verb "like" is followed by a preposition, object indirect, right?
"Den" is a definite article. The indefinite counterpart of "den" is "einen."
"Den" is accusative. "Dem" is dative.
"Den Tisch" is the direct object, not the indirect object.
