"The women eat a fish sandwich."

Translation:Die Frauen essen ein Fischsandwich.

January 24, 2013



Why can this be "Die Frauen essen einen Fischsandwich" and also "Die Frauen essen ein Fischsandwich"? Why can it be either ein or einen?


Because 'Sandwich' can be masculine or neuter. Both are ok. to use. Depending on where you are in Germany one or the other form is more common. BTW: in your question you have written the same sentence twice. You may want to correct the typo so that readers of your question don't get confused.


I haven't ever heard it as masculine. Are you sure?
