That can be awkward.
Now imagine going to that enemy of yours and saying: "Dein freund ist mein Freund" :D
Enemy : dann das macht mich auch dein freund ;)
"Der Freund meines Feindes ist auch mein Feind" --> Krieg.
"Der Feind meines Feindes ist auch mein Freund!"?
mojgalaxy2 - Nicht unbedingt.
Robert_Andersson - Hohe Wahrscheinlichkeit.
Feind shouldn't be hard to remember. Just think of "fiend"
The pronunciation is different because of the spelling. The German sounds like "find" and the English sounds like "feend".
Well, that's very mean!
"In my opinion, the Jedi are evil!"
And the Empire or the First Order are actually the good guys!
They just want order
Weil du mein Feind bist
Why is it not "Dein Freund ist meinen Feind." ? I would have thought that mein Feind would be in the masc. acc. case. Is it not the direct object of the sentence?
I think it's because 'ist' makes it an equality - 'sein' doesn't take an object; if 'haben' were used for example, 'Dein Freund hat einen Feind' then the accusative case would be correct.
I have the same question.
I cannot hear this "card". and it is a "type what you hear"-card

Our friends and their friends are not friends
Der feind von mein feind ist mein freund?
Yeah Duo, that belongs in a modern course of German.
Who is in charge of adding this kind of nonsense???
the sentence seems not nonsense, but a general realistic pattern in International relations and its Diplomacy of modern times. Also sometimes, it happens in individual relations :D
'Westside Story' anyone?
