Is the translation "A man drinks water" wrong. How to differentiate "drinks" and "is drinking" for the translation of "trinkt"?
The German sentence means both. There is no continuous aspect in German (is _-ing). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuous_and_progressive_aspects#German
Is it me or does the option of urine show up with a lot of the questions about drinking stuff? I know I'm learning the language but I'm not ready for that kind of cultural commitment yet.
Where are moderators? Please cancel all the previous stupid posts! I want to study German, not to read idiots!
trinke: (I) drink (to) drink (I) drink/am drinking
trinkt: (he/she/it) drinks/is drinking (you-plural) drink/are drinking (we/they) drink/are drinking
...Hope this helps! :)
Wow, I was beginner when I wrote this!
Now, I never forget to capitalize the nouns
even in English, I sometimes forget and capitalize some nouns too XD
How about trinkt wasnt discussed prior and we are expected to spell it straight off?
I had never seen the word trinkt before, yet when i heard it , i knew it was drink --' are you an English speaker? (as in Native)
Various form of drinking is used with different noun, can any one tell what form be used with particular noun?
