"Zahlt" vs. "Bezahlt" - "Zahlen" vs. "Nummer"
What is the difference between the German words "Zahlt" and "Bezahlt", and how are they conjugated?
What is the difference between "Zahlen" and "Nummer".
I believe that "Zahlen" is The Numbers and "Nummer" is like A Number. Is that correct?
Thank you! AP4418
zählen-> to count
ich zähle = i count
du zählst = you count (sing inf)
er/sie /es zählt = he/she/ it counts
wir zählen = we count
ihr zählt = you count (pl.inf)
sie/ Sie zählen = they count /you count (sing/pl formal)
bezahlen -> to pay (bezahlen is sometimes shortened to "zahlen")
ich bezahle = i pay
du bezahlst = you pay (sing. inf.)
er/ sie/ es bezahlt = he/she / it pays
wir bezahlen = we pay
ihr bezahlt =you pay (pl. inf.)
sie/Sie bezahlen = they pay / You pay (pl/sing. formal)
as you assumed :
Zahlen are the numbers
Nummer is a number like a phone number for example
Hi Dessert-Rose, I think you meant "zahlt" without "ä".
Hi 7hAu0bvY, I am agree with birgit72635. In my view, the words "zahlen" and "bezahlen" are not always interchangeable. There are minor differences.
