Warum Benutzen wir hier gute......?? Das is Nominative und das solll "Der Guter Junge???
Soist richtig. Das Adjektiv endet immer mit -e, wenn man der, die oder das benutzt. Das ist die Regel:
Der rote Wein. Das kleine Mädchen. Die junge Frau.
"Guter Junge" ist richtig, aber ohne der bestimmte Artikel oder mit dem unbestimmten Artikel ein: "ein guter Junge".
It is correct. The adjective always end with -e when one uses 'der', 'die' or 'das'. This is the rule:
The red wine. The little girl. The young woman.
"Guter Junge" is correct, but only without the definite article 'the' or with the indefinite article 'ein': "ein guter Junge".
Hope this helps. I don't understand why this was written in German when we are trying to learn German!!
This is only true for the nominative case and only for singular nouns - adjectives for plurals take the -en ending.
I had a lot of problems trying to figure out how adjectives are inflected by following partial rules like this. Take a look at some of the online references where the rules are explained more fully. I often go back to the wikipedia page:
http://www.nthuleen.com/teach/grammar/adjektivendungenexpl.htm The explanations and flow chart on the above website are really clear and extremely helpful. Hope you get a chance to look at it.
I know the above is an old comment, but shouldn't the preposition "ohne" command the accusative, as in "ohne DEN bestimmte Artikel"- (mixed declension) because "Artikel" is a masculine noun? ZU HILFE!
Yes, it should be accusative. Though it's "ohne den bestimmten Artikel."
Only strong adjective declension takes on the 'er' ending.
Weak adjective declension (with a definite article) either takes on either a '-e' or '-en' ending depending on the case and the gender.
Here are some tables showing the strong, weak and mixed adjective declension: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_declension#Attributive_adjectives
"Gute" here is an attributive adjective (i.e., it comes before the noun, as opposed to, say, "Der Junge ist gut"). Attributive adjectives need endings, in this case "-e."
"Junge" is specifically a child. "Guy" could be pretty much any male.
Where "Junge" is boy, I think "Jung/Jungs" is closer to guy/guys. You may be thinking of that.
adjective declension, add an "e" at the end of definite adjectives modifying a masculine noun in the nominative case.
"Guter" is incorrect because of the article "Der." Because the "-r" in "Der" is a hard ending, we must use the soft ending "-e" on "Gut-."
