"My wife eats a fish sandwich."

Translation:Meine Frau isst ein Fischsandwich.

April 6, 2013



I translated "Meine Weib isst ein Fisch Sandwich" and it said I wasn't correct! Arghhh!


It would be "Mein Weib isst ein Fischsandwich". It is "das Weib", so you need to use "mein" - but you better not say that in the presence of your actual wife because "Weib" is a derogatory term (it is still used in rural areas or by elderly people without derogatory meaning, but not by young people....)
