oh, your talking about the film 'home alone', i thought something different ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Home Alone was NOT a nice story! An entire kid was forgotten by his entire family for HOURS and had to fend off two idiot burglars for over a day, BY HIMSELF. He had to destroy his toys, and damage his house to do it too. That is not okay, sir. (Jokes: I got'em)
Sie: Bae, komm zu meinem Haus.
Du: Ich kann nicht, ich bin essend Pizza.
Sie: Ich bin allein zu Hause.
Du: ...Ich bin essend Pizza.
What?!? Allein = All+one (al(l)one)? Little by little we find a way to deconstruct these words.
"Hause" is mostly used in idiomatic expressions, such as the abovementioned "zu Hause".
It can also be the dative of "Haus" ("dem Hause"), but "dem Haus" is also correct and used much more often.
Well, "Hause" in "zu Hause" is dative. Its just that, since it's a common expression, the old dative stuck.
Hause is actually gramatically incorrect but is in idiomatic expressions and is thus not omitted.
"Hause" is dative case, but except for idiomatic phrases it is somewhat archaic, usually one says "(im / vorm / dem) Haus" these days.
We watched "Kevin allein zu Hause" in deutsch many years ago. Lines like this one really made it a fun experience.
Depends on where the word is used. If I understand it correctly, if there's a verb like ist then one uses the unchanging allein, however if in direct contact with the noun like the "alone cat" then it depends on the noun gender and number
Did you get this as a listening exercise? Then you have to type what the voice says and can't use synonyms.
I used "alleine" and it was not accepted, yet I've heard it spoken in Germany all the time.
No, it is not used for gender designation, it is the alternate translation for "alone"
He's alone in the house. Kinda not proper to use but it could be in the right context
Why can't you say "I'm home alone"? That's the most natural way to say it in English and means exactly the same thing.
Lol everyone else is thinking about home alone and I'm thinking about the 'I'm home alone' memes where the guy rushes to the girl's house
Tempted to write “I am home alone”. :) Played it safe and went with “I am alone at home”. Never know when you’re going to whacked on the head with this.
