I put 'do you know the book' without thinking. Is this not correct in the formal form?
The Sie needs to be capitalised for the polite form.
That is interesting
It's only you if "Sie" is capitalized. In this case it's not, you can cleary see it as "sie", so it's "they"
❤❤❤ this one was weird, my mind put it together as "know they the book".
In older English that is precisely how it was said. Read tge works of Shakespeare.
How can you tell if it is "the" book or "that" book?
It doesnt matter,both refer to a specific book.
How do I know it is they and not "she"?
I wrote "they know the book?" which could be used as an english question too. I dont understand why it needs to be "do they" can someone please explain. thanks
cause it's a question
And inflection could make it a question. Not all questions have a particular word order.
Why is "you know this book?" considered wrong
Oh nevermind i just realised why
"Do you know the book?" also should be correct!
No it shouldn't. It would only be "you" when the "Sie" has a capital "s", which in this case it does not.
If it is spoken then either 'you' or 'they' must be correct...
why does the subject come after the verb? Is it when you are asking a question
I hear "hennen" instead of "kennen". I guess I could have figured it out from context, but I sat there confused for a bit. Ended up getting it correct, but still, I think the audio could be improved on many of these "Type what you hear" entries.
"Does she know the book?" should also be correct!
"Das" can be used as the, this or that. Any should be acceptable, no?
