  5. "Habt ihr alles?"

"Habt ihr alles?"

Translation:Do you have everything?

February 3, 2013



"Have y'all got all?" is a solution???


It would be actually easier to translate ihr as y'all. Im just getting too confused about this ihr + formal/informal/plular you-s thing in German.


"Y'all" is accepted for ihr for some reason but "yeah" is not accepted for ja. Both are informal slang and neither should be accepted IMO


As a Southerner (American), I am deeply offended by this statement. :)

(In all seriousness, "y'all" is technically informal, but it's second nature for us to use it. "You all" is our "more formal" version of it.)


Only context to know when you is ihr or du? Hast du alles? Habt ihr alles?


Yes, without context it could be both. you = du, ihr, Sie singular, Sie plural.


can someone explain why is it alles?if the plural form of the pronoun is alle and most of the times I read that is being used in the plural form..so bottom line why isn't Habt ihr alle?dang it turns out that german is indeed as hard as rocket science..


Alles means everything whereas alle would be everybody such as Alle Frauen, which translates to all women.


becous alle is for pepole and alles for objects


What does y'all mean? Sounds like an Americanism that I've not come across before....


It's a contraction for you all. Mainly used in the Southern US.


Why doesn't "Have everything?" work?


Have everything is more informal, and duo probably will not accept slang or inf. answers


JDP6Gu, you will make much better progress with grammar if you operate in complete sentences, using a subject pronoun and proper question formation. "Have everything" is lazy speech and it will limit your understanding of German grammar.


I typed in "Do you have all" the first time this came up and got it wrong, because it said the answer was "Do you have it all". Then I typed it as "Do you have it all" the second time and it tells me it's wrong, and that "Do you have all" is correct. -_-


"alles" is probably closer in meaning here to "everything" rather than literally "all".


And I typed, "Do you have them all?" It seems to me that should be an acceptable answer.


Is "does she have everything" also correct? I mean if it were that context


I believe that would be 'Hat sie alles?' As ihr in this context means you.


Why do we use alles here instead of alle?


why would this be nominative instead of accusative?


Why does "you" come after the verb in the question


that's how questions are formed in German


When does ihr mean "her" vs "you"?


you can tell based on the conjunction of the verb. in the sentence it gave us we can tell it means "do y'all have everything" because the form of "have" that it uses is the one associated with the informal plural "you" (habt) rather than the pronoun "her"

one can also usually go by context, translating it both ways and seeing which one makes sense in English [do y'all have everything" rather than "do(es) her have everything"]


whoops, i meant to write "conjugation" in the first sentence, not "conjunction"

    Would not "Hast du allies" also work?


    i assume you mean "alles" here? in which case, your sentence works if the speaker is addressing it to only one person. "du" is the singular informal you, while "ihr" is plural informal


    "Have everything?" may be informal, but it's very widely used where I come from. I know Duolingo is likely using both Hochdeutch and Proper English, however common informal phrases should work.


    I don't like the Translation b/c it should be: "Do you got everything? " This sentence is more informal for the sake of getting around the more formal, longer and gramaticaly correct way of asking this question... Anyways this "habt" is more in the context of someone getting something...


    Would "Does she have everything?" be "Hat sie alles?" or "Hat ihr alles?"


    Why is "y'all" accepted for plural ihr but "thou" is not accepted for singular du? The former is slang and the latter is archaic. Niether should be acceptable because they're not modern standard english; both are colloquial words from specific dialects.


    "habt ihr alles" means "have you got everything" while "habt ihr alle "means "do you all(everybody) have"? am i right?
