But doesn’t ‘stark’ also mean ‘strong’ ‘sturdy’ in English? I am positive it is an English word too.
Yes, 'stark' is also an English word.
It means severe or bare, as in a 'stark landscape'.
It also means complete or sheer, as in 'stark terror'
Or as Tony Stark?)
Dont translate german words with english. Cause if we do that, we will form some other sentence. So in german Strak is going to be used as Strong (depending on the sentence)
In German, there's even a word, "Bärenstark," which means as strong as a bear. It was written in my German book.
Yes. But you have to write it small: "bärenstark", because then it's an adjective.
what does this sentence have to do with negatives?
What's the right way to pronounce "ist stark"? Should I drop the -t in ist and link its s sound with the sh- sound in stark? Or should I pronounce the final -t in ist?
T of ist should be pronounced, imho.
I got this wrong writing Bar.... Then what is bar auf deutsch?
If your keyboard is unable to type the ä in Bär, substitute it as Baer. Umlauts are pretty much used for replacing the e after a vowel, e.g. schön = schoen, später = spaeter, früh = frueh, etc.
And similarly, you can substitute ß with ss.
Youre supposed to have the ä, I think
The umlaut over the ä is extremely important and can, in some cases, radically change what the word means. Capitalization of nouns is also important for the same reason.
How does that work with spoken German? Is that pretty much all based on context?
Bar in german means the same as in english - bar, nightclub, cafe, ...
You can say "Ich gehe in eine/die Bar." or connect it with another word to get specific word, e.g. Nachtbar, Restaurantbar, Cocktailbar, ...
Can someone tell me where do i use der,die and das?
Sadly, you just have to remember the gender with each word. Although sometimes you can get some clues to the gender, like how words ending in -chen usually are "Das", such as Mädchen and Eichhörnchen.
I am a little confused. I thought Der Bar (with two dots over "a") was plural. What indicates plural "bears" versus singular "bear" again?
singular - der Bär, plural - die Bären
Doesn't "Kraftig" (with an umlaut over the a) also mean strong?
Does "Bär" only mean the animal or does it also refer to the gay tribes which are called "bear" in English?
