  5. "Sie ist nicht deine Frau?"


"Sie ist nicht deine Frau?"

April 22, 2013



I put "is she not your wife?" but it was considered wrong...


"Is she not your wife?" and "She is not your wife?" are two questions you would use in different contexts. For example, if a guy said to his friend, "If I go to Barcelona this summer, I would not take Karen with me." And the friend could say, "Is she not your wife?" (Why wouldn't you take your wife?). And in a different context, there are two guys at a neighborhood BBQ gathering. One guy says to the other, "You've met Lucy, right? I think you guys should date." "She is not your wife?" "No, silly. She's my sister."
