"Ein" is masculine and for neuter nouns, and "eine" is for feminine nouns :)
Because all nouns must start with capital letter, as well do Sie, Ihr and Ihre.
In this sentece, Junge isn't in the accusative? Why isn't einen Junge? Thank you.
The two words are not related.
[Der] Knabe is an obsolete word for "boy" and [das] Kind means "child".
JUNGE is neutral??? and what other meanings does this word have??.... graciaas por la respuesta!! (;
'Der Junge' means 'the boy'. 'Das Junge' = 'the animal offspring' (male or female).
Because of the verb sein (ich bin).
"The nominative case is also used to describe predicate nouns (i.e., nouns that are on the other side of verbs such as sein, bleiben, heißen, werden, scheinen from the main subject)"
Taken from this link:
Bub (Austrian) or Bube (Southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland) are dialectual words for "boy". But the standard High German word for boy is Junge, and this is the word Duolingo is focused on teaching.
