"Your dog is dirty."
Translation:Ihr Hund ist schmutzig.
the "Ihr" has a capitalized "I" which tells you it is the singular polite form of "dein". Hence the translation "Your dog is dirty".
it is also the beginning of the sentence tho so i thought the translation was their or her... oh dear...!!!!
"Ihr" here is also at the start of a sentence. So it's going to have a capital I anyway. So this does not tell you anything.
Formal "your" is Ihr (capitalised), not ihr (lowercase).
Lowercase ihr is "her" or "their".
I guess it's Ihr for plural, but no sure about it. Can someone explain pls?
Almost always lowercase euer for plural (and dein, of course).
I use the word dirty for "schmutzig" and "dreckig", both is possible I think, however in German
dreckig = sehr schmutzig but also, to use the word "schmutzig" is a little more friendly.
Yes, that's unfortunate. Feel free to report Dein Hund ist dreckig as "My translation should be accepted".
That is a meaning of the word but not the only meaning.
ihr can be "her" or "their", and Ihr (capitalised) is "your".
It's one of the accepted translations, so I don't know what might have happened in your case.
I understand why "Ihr" here is the formal second person singular. However this question is appearing in "Possessive Pronouns Stage 2". At this stage, we have not done formal address, so it hard to get this right. This question should not be appearing at this level of the course, because what it is testing has not been covered yet.
You're right. I've changed the "best" translation to be "her dog", so only that should appear on tapping exercises etc.
"your dog" is still accepted as an alternative answer in free-text translation exercises.
