"Wo ist mein weißes Hemd?"

Translation:Where is my white shirt?

March 17, 2013



Note: The es in weißes is because:
1. Mixed-inflection behind possessive determiner mein.
2. Hemd is neuter noun.
3. Nominative case behind ist

Kindly explain inflection, all the tips & notes do is give the kinds of inflection - strong, mixed, and weak, but what exactly does inflection even mean? this is so confusing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_declension#Attributive_adjectives Look at the table for mixed inflection. This is mixed inflection, because of the mein.

a colour is an adjective therefore it is treated as such. 1) If it precedes a masculine noun add -r or -er 2) if it precedes a neutral noun add -es 3) if it precedes a feminine noun, add -e

To remember it, just think of der, die and das. They all end in -r,-e, and -s

Why not "Where is my white blouse?" Is there another word for "blouse" specifically, or should it come under "Hemd" as well?

The word for blouse is die Bluse. I think the sentence would then be:

Wo ist meine weiße Bluse?

Is weißes Hemd nominative or accusative here?
