Why großEM? I understand why "einEM", but I don't know why großem? :(
It says "großen", not "großem".
I misstyped my question, sorry. Why großEN? I wanted to ask this. :)
Thanks the link!!
I need this:
"Mixed inflection (with ein, kein, possessive pronouns etc.)"
"in" is a dative preposition here. Haus is neuter, so when you have a indefinite article, it is einem and the ending for the adjective is -en.
Why is it dative? And how can we tell?
Because 'in' can be accusative or dative. In this case it refers to a location so it becomes dative.
Why not "im einen großen Haus"?
im is short for in+dem. Therefore "im einem großen Haus" would be "in dem einem großen Haus".
im is short for in einem so it makes no sense, but I also tried
im großen Haus and didn't work for me
I answered "Sie wohnt in einem großen Haus." but was told I have a typo. Where am I wrong?
I was told I have a typo: that it should be Hause? Huh?
wait why isn't it "im Haus", I thought Dativ neutral would become "im"?
You have the dative correct, but you have your articles wrong.
"Im" is the short form of "in dem": in the house. What's needed here is in a house, so "in eimem".
