Can this sentence (Probably in past tense) mean the same as the idiom "To have a cow" in English?
I was wondering the same thing! The boy has a cow - the boy is really upset, or has a tizzy fit.
why it shoudn't einen Kuh , although it's in accusative case .
'Einen' is the masculine accusative case. The feminine accusative case is still 'eine.'
you mean that Kuh is Feminine noun, right ?
whats the difference between Ein and Eine?
In the nominative case, ein is used for masculine and neuter words, eine for feminine words.
See the inflection of ein here: http://canoo.net/inflection/ein:Art:Indef:SG
Ene Kuh? Does it mean Kuh is female
@starchhu : Yes, that is die Kuh.
Is Der male?
Yes - like "der Junge" = the boy.
Finally some one explained it
What must i say ? Repeat German or say English ? Neither seems to work.
In speaking exercises, you're supposed to speak what you hear in the target language (here, German).
How would you say The boy had a cow, past tense?
That would be "Der Junge hatte eine Kuh."
i'm getting confused with the verb "to have"
That is all present tense though. Just for reference. Like the difference between having something and had something or even having had something if the person wants to be that descriptive in their sentences.
Why not the kid?
"Der Junge" is "the boy" (male child).
Why is "child" corrected to "kid" for Der Junge. It should be either answer.
It should be neither.
yh i keep getting it wrong for writing child...
Lucky boy. He has free milk.
Why it "der junge", if junge is neutral?
@AlinePOliveira : "Junge" is masculine, der Junge.
Thanks. I thought girl and boy had the same rule.
I am also confused among die das der.can u explain to me
Der is used for masculine words, die is used for feminine and plural words, and das is used for neutral words.
It is important to mention that this is only true of the nominative case.
Thank you! I needed that explained.
It is why we call him a cow boy!
How to differentiate between has and had?
"The boy had a cow" was given wrong.
Don't have a cow, man
