Then go get her, tiger!

So, you can't really distinguish this from "I want hair" ? That's an acceptable translation too.

Yes, if the bald man wants her and states that, we may all be confused.

Ik wil haar haar?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/der_Rabe

Ah no, this is a mistake in thinking, right? How would you say "I want her hair"?

Yes, that would be "Ik wil haar haar"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/der_Rabe

harharhar - um... Thanks for the help. And you got the right picture to say so. ;o)

I don't know if it's right, but I think I'd try to clarify. "Ik wil het haar von haar."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/J.Looijen

Stationari1. Than it should be: 'Ik wil het haar van haar'. The 'von' is not Dutch.

Is it just me or does this all sound a bit predatory? We HAVE him. I WANT her. In the next part will we have phrases I KILLED her and CHOPPED her up and I BURIED her.

there's also "are you cooking them?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alfalucia

Can you say that to refer that you want someone as a couple? or in what context can I use this?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MoHO1exw

Either you can use this in work: who will we pick to carry out this project: I want her. "Ik wil haar." (For instance I want her in my team) Or you can use it in love affairs: my parents don't approve, but I want her: "Ik wil haar."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Peter184590

You can't use this, really. It sounds awkward at the least


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andrew750930

Pronouncing dutch like this is a bit of a pain. My speech impediment doesn't help. (I can't say Ls or T/Hs correctly)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Natalia189634

why not "ik wil hem":)?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BrianKoche1

Yeah, or Ze wil hem. Or maybe Hij wil haar en hem en zij en jij en zichzelf maar niet zichzelf!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kookooroodza

Sounds like 'ik vil haar' which is, well, let's say it's in line with the cannibalistic tendencies in this section!

Ew. Creepo alert!!

As Shia Labeouf would say, just, do it! Time to shine my boy!
