"One man is eating an egg."
Translation:Ein Mann isst ein Ei.
Why is this not "Ein Mann isst einen Ei" ? Isn't this accusative? Why does "The man is eating the apple" use "einen" but this doesn't?
Before I had a neuter Noun that was a Das so I used ein and it was wrong, and now this is a neuter noun that i used eine for and it is ein.
Das & Der Means "(the) ..so, We use ein to mean (a) while if i am using Die i should use eine (a)
I was going for a simpler answer, as this is an early lesson. If we're getting specific, 'ein' is the indefinite article for masculine and neuter in the nominative case.
