Still confused between eten and eet.
"eten" is for plural subjects.
Why is it de here and not het?
In this case, "het" is only used for neuter singular nouns.
So you just need to learn which are neuter singular nouns?
Yeah, but every noun has a plural and a singular, just like English.
So when writing the women the men the boys the girls all would be de? But when writing the woman the man the boy the girl only the girl would be het?
Is there a word for "the" used with plural objects?
Yes, that's 'de'.
I don' t understand why " De rijst "
It is not "het " ?
de is for plural subjects (vrouwen/women). het is for singular subjects (vrouw/woman). anyone correct if wrong.
Vrouw is a male/female word though so it's actually de vrouw for both. You're right in the case of neuter nouns, like het meisje and de meisjes
