what is the difference between "euer" and "deine"?
I came across this in the possessive pronouns skill, and I didn't quite grasp it the first time. It was " Euer Frau trinkt milch." It sounded strange to me; because I have always used "deine". Why was euer used instead of deine?
What is the difference between you singular and you plural in English then? Dein/e is the possessive article for 'You' singular Euer/e is the possessive article for 'You' plural
ich - mein
du - dein
er - sein
sie - ihr
es - sein
wir - unser
ihr - euer
sie(Plural) - ihr
Sie(Formal) - Ihr
P.S. I've never come across 'Euer Frau trinkt Milch' in the course so far. Plus it's wrong as far as I can tell - it should be 'Eure' - since 'Frau' is feminine
But Frau is also singular. Eure is Plural. Are they implying plural marriage?
I mean, I know that in the "tips n' notes" section, It says Euer is used for the "You all" form, but why was it used in this case?
ooh, i see what you mean... several people sharing one wife?
i suppose it could be woman, rather than wife... so several people could share a woman in the sense of servant.
yeah. I went back and did the lesson again, and saw several others like this. why would "all of you have one apple?"
Eure Frau trinkt Milch...
your (informal, speaking to more than one) wife drinks milk.
It's eure as Frau is feminine.
Euer = Informal, Plural "Your"
Deine = Informal, Singular "Your"
...I believe. Please correct me if I'm wrong. :)
euer/eure is informal plural your (ie talking to more than one person)
(formal your would still be Ihr/Ihre even if plural)
