"Aus den Regionen"

Translation:From the regions

March 7, 2013



In previous lessons , I learn that 'Aus' could also mean 'Out of'. Therefore in this case I used 'Out of the regions' and it said that I am correct. But I believe ' Out of the regions ' and 'From the regions' is different . Can anyone please explain?

That distinction doesn't exist in German.

out of the regions can mean the same thing as from the regions. Unless the regions are jars...

Jars of lemon curd or eyeballs?

Why not "dem" instead of "den"?

April 22, 2013


aus does indeed take the dative, and the fact that it's den Regionen (plural dative) rather than singular (dem) shows that it's regions instead of region

shouldn't it be "die Regionen"?

I also would like to know

No, because "aus" takes the dative, "die Regionen" would work as the subject, say, but not as the object of the preposition "aus".

What is this supposed to mean? :O

regional, perhaps?

I wrote 'outside the regions', which did not get a yes. Below, Christian writes that 'out of' and 'from' are synonymous in German. If so, how do they differ from 'aus'?

Outside and out of have different meanings in English. One is indicating where one is, and another is indicating where one is from.

Well, it's sort of difficult to distinguish them if you don't have a verb or another bit of a sentence hanging around!

Aus does not translate to outside, only out. Aus/out implies a place has been departed. Au├čerhalb/outside excludes a place. A beer out of Germany means the beer comes from Germany. A beer outside of Germany means the beer's current location is NOT Germany (but doesn't imply anything about where the beer is from).

Same as 'provinces'?

No region is like the concept of per states. It can also be like the east coasts, central, etc. Just a division of a land mass per territory.

What is the difference b/w a district and region?

April 10, 2016


A district is a type of administrative division that, in some countries, is managed by local government. Across the world, areas known as "districts" vary greatly in size, spanning regions or counties, several municipalities, subdivisions of municipalities, school district, or political district.

In geography, regions are areas that are broadly divided by physical characteristics (physical geography), human impact characteristics (human geography), and the interaction of humanity and the environment (environmental geography). Geographic regions and sub-regions are mostly described by their imprecisely defined, and sometimes transitory boundaries, except in human geography, where jurisdiction areas such as national borders are defined in law.

good luck finding this phrase used in any normal English conversation

July 4, 2014


People congregate in the city from the nearby regions.

I can think of one. Here in Canada, some time ago they started calling some (maybe all?) of what they used to call "counties", "regions." For example, the region of Peel, the region of York. So, there might be a conference of representatives from the major cities and regions of Ontario.
