"Die weiße Katze"

Translation:The white cat

Am I the only person to hear, very clearly, "Der weisse Katze" in the narration? I know it's Die but I hear Der no matter how many times I listen.

It's even weirder that when you slow it down (the turtle button), it does says "die" 0_0

The earlier 'das grüne Haus' too. Also correct on slow.

No, you're not alone. It's the old geezer at work again. Someone please put him out to pasture...

die Stimme sagt "der" weiße Katze - "die" ist richtig

Yeah, it seems to be a problem with the audio.
As you've just said, the correct way is ''Die weiße Katze.''

Why is it not "the white cat" here? Why does 'Katze' end in 'e'?

The German word for cat is "Katze", the plural is "Katzen".

So, if it was plural: "Die weiße Katzen" is that correct?

December 21, 2014


No. It would be "Die weißen Katzen" as this is in the nominative case, plural, and due to the definite article "die", the adjective takes weak inflection. Thus you add an -n at the end of the adjective. The adjective now corresponds with the noun in number as well, indicating that many cats are the subject as opposed to a single cat. Please feel free to correct me :-)
