  5. "Ich werde Husten nicht los" …


"Ich werde Husten nicht los" from story Fi fi braucht ein Zimmer"

Someone can explain sense of this sentence "Ich werde Husten nicht los" I not get/become cough happen...> it's look like word puzzle. I think through sense is " I can't cure this cough" but only from context.

There is a word missing here. It should be "Ich werde den Husten nicht los."

You are correct with your translation. The Verb in this sentence is loswerden, which means get rid of.


Oh danke. I didn't knew "loswerden" is one word, now all is clear.
