the woman voice says the word oran"g"en with "dʒ" while the man voice says orange with "g". why?
I am a native German speaker an can confirm that this word is pronounced with d3
I can't imagine using this sentence in English or German. Rather "these are orange trees" or "the oranges are on these trees"
Before you harvest your fruits you can see them in you tree. So a sentence could be "these trees have oranges, we will harvest it tomorrow"
(1) How do you know 'Baume' is plural, when 'this tree has oranges', make perfect sense? (2) I am also somewhat confused, with this word 'diese and all derivatives, how do you know which to use when gender alone is insufficient?
I think "haben" is the clue here, it would have been "habe" if it was singular
I am also confused, wouldn't it be 'das baum'? That is what duo has been using.
I think das means this/that as a demonstrative pronoun, whereas dies functions as a demonstrative adjective. So das would replace a noun while dies would describe it. It's a bit confusing because we don't use separate words for those different meanings in English.
Das can be used as "that" or "this", correct? I know how to use dieser, diese, and dieses but when can I use das?
Exactly, as Nina said. That's why you don't need to rely on the verb (in this case“haben") to tell the number of the noun.
Can anyone explain simply how Bäume is pronounced? I'm really struggling with Eure too.
Quick answer: boy-meh. Not so quick answer: Remember the “eu" diphthong is pronounced “oy" and the umlaut in “ä" effectively turns it into an “e”. So both “eu" AND “äu" sound the same (ie. oy).
No, diese Bäumen does not exist.
diesen Bäumen would work -- dative plural, "(to) these trees".
Isn't "Apfelsinen" the proper German word for oranges?
I think I am mixed up now, this is plural masculine.. diese Bäume, whereas in a previous sentence, did we see dieser Männer, also plural masculine?
diese Männer is nominative or accusative plural.
dieser Männer is genitive plural, e.g. die Hüte dieser Männer = the hats of these men
The dative plural would be diesen Männern.
Ok, I am taking slow deep breaths now, realizing I still have a long ways to go with this..thanks for the response..
I got this as a "type what you hear" task and it did not go too well. I typed "Diese Poema" then I absolutely could conjecture up what the poems had. Do you guys think the TTS is sounding correct? (Now I know that a poem is ein Gedicht, btw...)!
