Why can I not write "Hij heeft jij" ?

April 11, 2016


As I understand it you wouldn't be able to do this because you'd be trying to use a subjective pronoun as an objective pronoun. You could do it in english because we use the same word for "you" as an object and a subject in a sentence but in dutch, they don't use "jij" as an objective pronoun - only subjective.

"you" can be singular and plural. It should be clear if Sg. or Pl. is asked here.

Yes, singular and plural are both accepted as translations. You get to pick.

What is the difference between jou and jouw?

March 7, 2016


"Jou" means 'you' as an objective pronouns. Instead, "Jouw" means 'your/yours' as an possessive pronouns. Quick examples:

  1. Dat is jouw botterham. = that is your sandwich.
  2. Hij is een goede man en hij wilt tot ziet jou! = he is a good man and he wants to see you.

Correction: hij is een goede man en hij wil je/jou zien.
