"Könnt ihr mir mehr darüber sagen?"

Translation:Can you tell me more about that?

Why is "Could you tell me more about that" incorrect?

September 21, 2014


Could is the subjunctive mood of can, which is different. Ihr könnt vs ihr könnet (see https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/können#German for the full table)

why is it ihr and not Sie? And even so, shouldn't it be capitalized?

Both mean "you" but differ by formality and can differ by number.

"Sie": nominative, singular/plural, formal 2nd person pronoun

"ihr": nominative, plural, 2nd person pronoun

"ihr" in this context wouldn't be capitalized.

I said 'could you talk to me about that more?' and it wasn't accepted - it is a close translation.
