What is the difference between fressen and essen? Because both of them are used for 'eating' by more than one person.
With animals or insects it's Fressen, with humans it's Essen
Insects are animals
so are humans ;)
Well I can't stop laughing after imagining pigs eating noodles! :◇
Is nudeln one of the both plural and singular words?
Noodles/pasta is plural so I think it is 'nudeln' everytime.
Pigs eating noodles? Hmm
pigs eat anything
Why is it not "Die Schweine fressen den Nudeln"?
'Nudeln' is plural and in accusative you use 'die' I believe you are confusing it with Dative.
Would it be incorrect to add in "sind" before "fressen"?
I realize it may be redundant, but it shouldnt be incorrect, from my understanding at this point, to include clarification.
In German, there's no continuous aspect. There are no separate forms for "They eat" and "They are eating". There's only one form: Sie fressen.
There's no such thing as Sie sind fressen!
but... you could say, "Sie sind am fressen"
doesn't the verb 'fressen' also include are ?

What's the difference between frisst and fressen? They both mean the same thing.
"Frisst" is "to eat" (for animals) at the second and third person singular, and "Fressen" is "to eat" (for animals) at the first and third person plural.
frist is singular and fressen is plural.
Why is it not "pasta" instead of "Nudeln"?
Can I use pig as an insult in german like "Du Schwein"
Die Schweine fressen die Nudeln.
Huh. I typed ¨fressen¨ but Duo marked me off anyway. Valve pls fix
A spelling mistake in 'schweine' maybe?
is there a reason the plural of Schwein isn't Schweinen? is there a rule about constructing plurals I'm missing?
From my understanding, it would only be 'Schweinen' if the singular form of pig was 'Schweine'
Wouldn't it be lovely if a sheep ate a peach for once???
Why is not den Nudeln? It is also akv.
In this case nudeln is plural. If you have plural word no matter is akkusativ or nominative choose the 'die'. Die is plural form of die der das den.
