Translation:We would have never published your texts!
Could "nie" be used in this sentence instead of "niemals"? If not, what's the difference?
But in another sentnce structure Wit hätten eure texte nie veröffentlicht/ wir hätten nie eure Texte veröffentlich/ nie hätten wir eure texte veröffentlicht
As a native speaker, I dont quite get the meaning of this in English...
• Is it supposed to express indignation? "We would never do such a terrible thing as to publish your document on Wikileaks!"
• Or is it an evil publisher: "Ha Ha Ha... We kept yout manuscript for 10 years on the shelf and would never have published that pece of junk!"
I am not 100% sure of the exact grammar but it would involve the verb 'lassen'. "Wir hätten eure Texte niemals veröffentlichen lassen!" or something. (A more fluent German-speaker should feel free to clean up my mistakes!)
Either one of:
- Wir ließen eure Texte niemals veröffentlichen
- Wir würden eure Texte niemals veröffentlichen lassen
Your sentence is correct grammatically, but it means "We would never have had your texts pusblished"
Vielleicht Ill take a stab Wir hatten nie lassen, eure Texte veröffentlicht geworden ist
Unfortunately, this is totally and completely wrong. But have a lingot for trying :)
It should have been accepted. I'd say that "eure" is more common nowadays but "euere" still is perfectly fine.
"Eure Texte" comes after the verb because it is the direct object, correct? Can you put niemals anywhere else in the sentence (including after the verb?)
Yeah but not between: Wir & hätten Eure & texte These words needs to be together
Ok seriously, maku up your mind on the word order issue.. " we would have your texts never published" incorrect even though it means the same but is an awkward way of ordering it, i agree. However on a previous question i did not adhere to copying the german word order in the translation and i got flagged wrong, even though the meaning was the same.
I got it wrong because of a word being (capitilized) that shouldn't have been?
Wir hätten niemals eure Texte veröffentlicht or Niemals hätten wir eure Texte veröffentlicht
