"Das ist unser Raum"

Translation:That is our room.

March 25, 2013



"That is our Room" is not a good translation. Because although Raum can mean room, it usually means room as in space (eg leg room) and Zimmer is usually used as a room in a building

So it should be: "that is our space"?

That is correct. "Das ist unsere Zimmer" would be "That's our room"

Unser as Zimmer is neuter

    Thank you! I was wondering about that!

    March 12, 2016


    I thought Zimmer was room.

    It is if you're talking about a bedroom or a bathroom. If you're talking about room as in leg-room or a space to put something, it's Raum. This particular sentence is a little misleading; not technically wrong, but ambiguous.

    Earlier, Raum was translated as area. Why is that not correct here?

    November 4, 2014


    I am wondering the same thing. If I tap Raum, area is on the list.

    When is it unser and when unserer? Thanks!

    I think it should be "unserer Raum" since "Raum" is Masculine, but "..er R.." the second "er" is omitted from "unserer" as in "We will" > "We'll"

    I'm not sure, and I hope any native is around to onfirm it

    No, but it is a common mistake. Unser is an indirect article just the same as ein and mein and not an adjective. This means that nominative masculine, neuter and accusative neuter have no further ending. Raum here is nominative masculine.

    unserer is used when you would use einer, so feminine genitive and dative and plural genitive.

    Now I'm lost and confused :)

    is there any table for all of articles, pros, .... in all different cases just to clarify things ?

    April 15, 2014


    here it is nominative not akkusative because sein take two nominative in this case

    I had "that is our area" rejected. I could have sworn it used area to translate to Raum before.

    April 1, 2015


    I have the same rejection.

    Why not "It is our room."?

    May 27, 2013


    "Das" usually translates to "the", "this", or "that". If you want to say "It is our room", you would say "Es ist unser Raum" or, as the other comments here are saying, "Es ist unser Zimmer."

    The pronunciation isn't clear, I kept hearing something like "Das ist unser Uhaun" and was wondering where I ever heard a word like that.

    How can we say whether "Raum" is m/n from a sentence like this normally (if we don't have any previous idea) ?

    September 16, 2013


      We would need more information, for example a longer sentence or a dictionary ;)

      July 12, 2017


      What's the difference between "Raum" and "Zimmer" ?

      May 18, 2018


      Raum is profound with the d sound???
