Whats the difference between leute und menschen?
Don't quote me on this, but Menschen more closely translates to humans. Leute means people.
Leute is people and Menschen is the People. Not a huge difference, but enough.
Why not "Er kennt wichtigen Leute"? if Leute is a plural word by itself. Or should I consider "die Leute" as femenine instead of plural?
There is no article here, so the adjective wichtig takes strong inflection -- that has the ending -e for accusative plural.
wichtigen would be weak or mixed inflection.
Is there any difference between "Leute" being masculin or plural?
Not sure what you mean. "Leute" is always plural.
Ok, internet dictionaries are not always worth trusting
I think I need more backstory, because that's singular vs. plural and masculine vs. feminine vs. neuter.
You said something about Internet dictionaries?
Beolingus is a good dictionary online
Does it also translates into "He knows influential people"?
According to my dictionary, einflussreich = 'influential'.
Dangit. So I'm the only one that heard "wir kennt?" Even on the slower recording. Knew that wasn't right so tried "wir kennen." I failed
Shouldn't it be mixed inflection in Akkusativ? He knows (whom=) wichtigen Leute?
There's no article before the adjective so it's strongly inflected (-e in nom/acc plural).
thanks! i got confused!
Shouldn't it be "Er Kann", because kennt is in the past tense?
er kennt "he knows" is the present tense of kennen "to know"
er kann "he can" is the present tense of können "to be able to"
Neither word is past tense.
Got it! Danke.
