I think Subhazard meant he was having trouble hearing the difference.
thank you very much for this.
Then what about trinken? What is used with Ihr? Please tell me the logic behind all this. Hope you will help me
If you remember that order, the suffix's mak e, st, t, en, t, en (es ten ten)
Why 'der' and not ' den'?
When a masculine noun is the subject of a sentence, the definite article will be der. (Nominativ) When a masculine noun is the direct object of a sentence, the definite article will be den. (Accusativ)
why does it have to be der and not das or die?
Der is masculine. Das is neutral. Die is feminine. It has to be der because "Mann" is masculine, not neutral nor feminine.
I added die to milch. Is that wrong?
That would be "The man drinks THE milk", not ""the man drinks milk"
how do i remember the trinkt/trinkst difference
Trinkt applies third person singular and second person plural. Trinkst applies to second person singular. You can remember that there's an s in trinkst by Second perSon Singular. Hope that helped!
What the different betweem die das der
They are different versions of the word "the", based on what grammatical gender is assigned to the noun they're attached to. You just have to memorize which one to use with with words.
Im fine with all of this till it comes up die kinder or der mann..not 100% sure which one to use. Any help..danke
I’m afraid I’m not sure what you’re asking about. Die Kinder is “the children” and der Mann is “the man”. The two words don’t have anything much in common at all.
Wieso heisst es: Der Mann trinkt Milch. Und nicht: Der Mann trinkt die Milch?
That would be: “The man drinks the milk.” (That is, some specific milk which the listener already knows about)
