"Lunch in the good restaurant"

Translation:Mittagessen im guten Restaurant

Why guten?

December 2, 2017


After reading all of that, if the article is in other than the nominative, add -en. I will never understand why so many grammar rules, like this, exist.

I think I'll need to read that more than once lol

I think personally think it's easier to just memorize the articles rather than going by the flowchart.

Because of no to question 2, right?

September 18, 2018


Because it is in dative. From last lectures we learned that when there is not action it is in dative. Adjectives in dative need -n ending. and in dem turns to im. Hope this clarifies.

Maybe i missed something but why isn't "das" included

September 26, 2017


das gute Restaurant = nominative
dem guten Restaurant = dative

The preposition in triggers dative when a location / place is concerned.
in + dem = im

I could be wrong, but I think the question was : Why is 'das' not included before Mittagessen, as in, "Das mittagessen im guten Restaurant."

I would also like to know the answer to this question. I think some previous lessons allow us to use the definite article in similar situations (E.g., das Abendessen when referring to dinner in general and not "the" dinner), but I would have to double check those lessons.

Was ist this im and how do I use it? Are there different forms?

June 26, 2018


im is a contraction of in dem, i.e. "in the" when used before a neuter or masculine noun.

ins is a contraction of in das, i.e. "into the" when used before a neuter noun.

Those are the only two contractions of in + definite article in standard German; in die, in den, in der will always be two words.

Hey i am very confused with these grammer rules and the web site up top confused me too. Can someone please explain?

May 16, 2019


Why im not ins?

May 31, 2019


Because the meal was "in" the restaurant, not "into" it.

Is it possible to reword this using "zu essen Mittag"... or that phrase requires an object?

August 12, 2019


In English this would not constitute a sentence. Perhaps it should be "Lunch is in the good restaurant".

February 10, 2018


That's right; this is not a complete sentence. Note also the lack of punctuation at the end.

February 11, 2018


Who would say "Lunch in the good restaurant"? It sounds quite awkward. It is common to say "lunch in a good restaurant", though.

Duo hat BS gesagt!!!! I have a typo in "restaurant" and it does not give it to me when elsewhere i get a pass and shown my typo. Was ist los!?!? Es ist nicht der hunde!!!

November 16, 2018


I made a typo in the word restaurant and it actually accepted it for me.

December 30, 2018


"Lokal" is also a restaurant

Please explain. Is this strong inflection?

October 31, 2017


No, this is weak inflection.
