The difference is that unser is paired with a neuter accusative object, while unseren is paired with the masculine. As for feminine, it would be unsere.
so which word do we have to focus for changing that unser to unseren / unsere or just let it stay unser? which word in the sentence effects its transformation
The direct object, that is, the person or thing that receives the action of the verb. In this case, He has...something. What does he have? Our dog. So, our dog, unseren Hund, is the direct object and is in the accusative case. Hund is a,masculine noun, so the article or determiner takes the -n/-en ending.
unseren because Der Hund is masculine, With feminine= unsere, neutral= unser, and for Plural=unsere, this is as far as I know
I listen for the different sounds, honestly. Like, in German, it seems as if "Er" is pronounce like the English word "Air," whereas "Ihr" sounds more like the English word "Ear."
listen to the rest of the sentence, as said by one person, listen to the conjugation of the verb. that's exactly how I tell.
As far as I understand this, 'unseren' is in the accusative because it refers to the dog, and the dog is the object — from the sentence, the dog is the one being 'haved', if you will; the object of the verb, "to have." Thoughts?
Hound is sometimes used as a generic term for dog, but it usually means a specific type.
where does the neuter nominative case for 'unseren' come from, since dog is male? how is Der Hund neutral in this case?
i believe unseren is for masculine. check out http://www.deutschakademie.com/blog/possessivartikel-im-akkusativ/
and it is akkusativ because of the verb hat
I read the link u have shared. Could you plz help me figure out why 'uns' is wrong. Isn't that an accusative pronoun?
Yes, uns is an accusative pronoun, but what is it asking for is not the pronoun. In this case, the accusative object is "our dog," rather than us.
then it must be an error on Duolingo's part because it says neuter nominative when I hovered over 'unseren'
There's another lesson where you have to add -n to the object because it was accusative. ex: Ich mag deinen Vorname(n). Why are we not doing the same to the "Hund"?
Well everyone agrees that it is in the acusative form and the gender is neuter right ? then shouldn't be unser ? someone posted this link before and they use unser, i am confused now... https://deutsch.lingolia.com/en/grammar/pronouns/possessive-pronouns
