Whats the difference between "Platte" and "Teller" ?
Dec 29, 2014 - I seem to recall that die Platte is more platter-like, larger, used for serving, and you eat off of der Teller. I could be wrong - it's been decades since I was in Germany.
why not using ein instead of einen?
In this sentence, "Teller" is in the accusative case, so being a masculine word, it requires "ein" to be declined to "einen."
Could this be translated "The wife has a plate."? Which I suppose would mean "my wife" -- I'm still trying to figure out this usage. Germans (or maybe just Duolingo), seem to be big on using definite article for relatives.
"Die Frau" simply means "the woman".
"Meine Frau" means "My woman" which more conversationally means "My Wife"
The sound is not working, so cannot repeat the phrase
Why is "The woman has a plate" wrong ?
