"Es IST die Stuhlen der Männer" or "Es SIND die Stuhlen der Männer" ? (answered)
In English you can say "It's the Man's chairs". Can we do the same in German? Is "Es ist die Stuhlen der Männer" gramatically correct?
Or should it be "SIE SIND die Stuhlen der Männer" ?
edit: oh, it's "Stühle", not "Stuhlen". Thanks! :(
Stühlen is Dativ. For a simple ist sentence, use Nominativ case - Stühle
Es sind die Stühle der Männer
..Oh btw, if you want to make an Umlaut, using "ue" is better than just "u", like Stuehlen. It's an old-fashioned way of writing, and not ideal, but a lot better than just Stuhlen (that means something... different...)
don't feel bad about it. I have been learning English in school for several years, but the real insight came with reading books and magazines. You will have both vocab training and grammar exercise by reading. Then the right words will pop up in the right situation. You'll never stumble over those Umlauts again.
Anyway, a slight "accent" is nice sometimes and will be accepted.
