"The man is wearing a hat."
Translation:Der Mann trägt einen Hut.
Hello, could someone explain why it is "einen" instead of "ein"? Does it have to do with gender?
"Der Mann traegt einen Hut" is perfectly correct German. In English, for example, one would say "She carries that dress well.."
Hi, I studied German ay A Level so I can help you out here! Because "Hut" is now the object of the sentence so it is in the acusative case. The masculine article is "ein" when something is the subject of a sentence and therefore in the nominative case and "einen" when it is the object and therefore in the acusative case :)
