Eure Häuser sind schön.
"Your houses are nice." Is Eure just Your, singular? Or is it a polite Your. Or is it both or neither and something else. Can it be a plural Your?
Promise this is last question today. Thanks.
It's plural you. "Dein Haus ist/Deine Haeuser sind schoen" - you singular. "Euer Haus ist/Eure Haeuser sind schoen" - you plural. "Ihr Haus ist/Ihre Haeuser sind schoen" - you formal singular and plural.
Meike - Isn't there a difference between "you" and "your" in German? Do you mean Eure means your? Is it capitalized in the middle of a sentence?
Oh, and no, "euer" or "eure" is not capitalized in the middle of the sentence. "Ihr" or "Ihre" is, however, when you're talking formally to a group.
I knew this was coming, you don't have to answer. Explain euer vs. eure. I really am having a bad day.
That's the declension sing/plural
For masculine nouns it's
For feminine nouns it's
Yes, I'm sorry, you're totally right! So make every "you" that I wrote above and turn it into "your". I feel bad, I did not mean to add to the confusion.
Nein, ein formaler Plural wäre "Ihre Häuser sind schön". "Eure Häuser sind schön" is informal, e.g. when you tell a group of friends that you like their houses.
