I tried to say it right like 8 times, didn´t work although I was pretty close to the right pronunciation imho. Then I just hit record and said something like "lalalalala" and it worked :)))
I'm sure that's how I sound to Germans when I attempt to speak their wonderful language.
From Tips :"Note that the dative changes all articles for the words, the plural and pronouns. For example, even though "Frau" is a feminine noun, it will take the masculine article here to indicate the dative: "Ich danke der Frau" (I thank the woman)." So Die Schüssel in Dative case becomes Der Schüssel.Also,it's Dative because it's being used with "mit" which is a Dative preposition.
a semantic correction on this comment. "Ich danke der Frau" is not technically using a "masculine article" - it is actually using the feminine dative article, which just so happens to be identical to the masculine nominative.
Somebody please explain to me, how can this case be dative? This is pure genitive. and I don't mean because of "der"...
