"dine" is the plural form of "yours" (i.e. if you have more than one thing)
e.g. "dit æble" becomes "dine æbler"
Thanks. I'm still struggling a little to fully grasp all the forms of "your/yours".
I think I've got it mostly down for its: - sit aeble = its apple - sin appelsin = its orange - sine aebler = its apples
Can someone help me with the equivalent map for yours? - dit aeble = your apple - ???? appelsin = your orange (is the correct word "din"???) - dine aebler = your apples
din/dit æble=your apple, and dine æbler=your apples. So din/dit is in singular form , and dine is in the plural form of yours
What is the difference in din and dine in pronunciation? I'm afraid my ears can't catch it.
My understanding is if you're speaking Danish as the danish do, there is no difference or if there is its barely, if at all, intelligible. Danes don't speak Danish like Germans speak German. I hear "Jeg er en Mand" spoken by a Dane as "Ya e men" Its fast and they use shortened pronunciations for practically everything. Its for this reason that learning to read and write Danish is a lot easier than speaking and listening to Danish. It takes practice. Constant immersion. Gotta make logical assumptions or have the confidence to ask for clarification.
Why my answer didn't get accepted "Du har din". We do not know what is the object being possessed, do we? it could have been an apple Du har dit, it could have been a newspaper Du har din, or it could have been various newspapers Du har dine, no? am I wrong?
What kind of question did you get?
If it was a translation question from English to Danish, then "du har din" is already accepted
If it was a "Type what you hear" question, then you have to type what is said, so if it said "dine" then only "dine" will be accepted
If it was a multiple choice question then all correct answers must be chosen, so if all three of "Du har din", "Du har dit" and "Du har dine" come up, you must select them all
Any other question types, I'm not too familiar with
