Wie viele Wege gibt es zu sagen "He is dead" auf deutsch.
I watch a lot of German movies to help me with my German and most of them are war movies. So I wonder: wie viele Wege gibt es zu sagen "He is dead" auf deutsch. Danke.
Sorry, I don't want to sound uncooperative, but there are so many possibilities (he was shot, strangulated, died of a heart attack, fatally hit by a car ...) that I don't find it desirable or even possible to collect them all in one thread. I think you should look these up in a dictionary.
And if you have a problem with one of the translations you find there, you should ask a new, more targeted question. This would be my suggestion.
In a war movie you will hear things like 'er ist verreckt' for 'he died a slow and gruesome death', 'er ist abgekratzt', 'der ist hinüber' for 'this one is dead'. That's rarely in use in colloquial use (and never politically correct), but then again, war is not known for bringing up the best in mankind. After an accident you should rather use " er ist gestorben" and elderly or seriously sick people "sind (sanft) entschlafen".
A people with much experience in death will always have plenty of words for it.
