"That does not help you all."
Translation:Das hilft euch nicht.
"Das hilft ihnen nicht" - Why is it not correct ?
They have used "ihr" - Informal plural I used formal singular/plural "ihnen". Can anyone explain about this?
the subject is "das" so the conjugation should follow "das". That's why "hilft" is the correct one.
If the sentence omits the all at the end, then dir should work, Ihnen (the polite form) needs to be capitalised.
The conjugation of "help y'all" is, according to what I understand, "helft euch", not "hilft". What am I missing?
The subject of this sentence is not "euch", but "das". Since "das" has a third person singular meaning, it requires the third person singular form of the verb.
Euch hilft das nicht? I thought word order did not matter so much in German. Couldn't that still be said, emphasizing you all?
