Is there any difference in pronunciation between "Ja" and "Jahr"?
Jahr is supposed to be pronounced with the 'r'. "Jahr" should sound longer.
Ja is [ja:], and Jahr is [ˈja:ɐ̯]. The [ɐ̯] is the typical pronunciation of -er endings like Bruder and Schneider, for example.
"I go annually" incorrect, but why?
@pax0jara : That would be "Ich gehe jährlich."
Shouldn't it be: "I am going every year"?
Both are correct translations, though to use the gerund (i.e. say "I am going") for a recurring event is a bit uncommon.
Are you British or American? I am also a bit confused what's the correct form here.
American. As I said, both translations should be accepted, but "I go every year" is more common - generally, recurring actions are described in simple present tense.
I understand the indefinite pronoun "jedes" is used because Jahr is neutral (das Jahr). My question is, does "jeder, -e, -es" take on a specific declination here (Nominativ, Akkusativ, Dativ, oer Genitiv)?
