Why are people being downvoted for asking grammar questions about the sentences? Most unfair, and I have upvoted them, for what it's worth.
Is there any more breakdown of this phrase than just "ne arată nouă" meaning "shows us" ? I'm seeing some recognizable words, but not making connections to the phrase. Thanks for the help.
Basically "Ea ne arată" is enough, where "ne" is the weak dative form of noi. However it is very common in Romanian to reduplicate pronouns for extra emphasis, which is why the strong dative form "nouă" is added at the end, but it is optional and the sentence is still correct without it.
Thanks, and how does one distinguish between "us" and "nine"? (Apologies if this was obvious from earlier lessons, I might have glossed over it.)
What would "She shows us nine" look like?
Thanks for your help.
It is even worse (or more interesting): “Nouă” can mean “us,” “nine,” or “new” (feminine of “nou”). In this case, however, I do not see how it could mean “new-”
"She shows us nine" = "Ea ne arată nouă." Distinguish based on situation or context.
So 'She shows us nine new cars' would be ea ne arata noua noua masini noua'? (sorry can't type tje diacritics on my keyboard)
