"Die Hüte"

Translation:The hats

July 27, 2013



If Hute=Hats whats the singular word for hat?

July 27, 2013


The singular is der Hut.

July 27, 2013


Der Hut is using the masculine nominative (der), so "Hut" is masculine? But the plural is "die Hüte" and die is feminine? So in German, can nouns change their gender based on singular or plural? Is this common?

I suggest you not to think of die being feminine but rather being a word which is used as an article for both feminine nouns as well as nouns in plural. The word Hüte is still masculine, but in plural all articles receive a common inflection pattern for masculine, feminine and neuter nouns. In general, inflection tables in german are divided into masculine, feminine, neuter and plural.

Note that the plural inflection is not identical to the singular feminine inflection for all cases: „Ich schreibe der Frau einen Brief.“ – “I write a letter to the woman.”
„Ich schreibe den Frauen einen Brief.“ – “I write a letter to the women.”

Danke , das ist wichtig. I had not understood that before.

Please also understand that definite/indefinite articles and their accompanied nouns change according to Nominative/Akkusative/Dative and Genitive

I don't hear any 'H' sound. Is there supposed to be one?

December 17, 2014


Well, it's there...

June 1, 2015


It sounds like a 'P' to me

January 19, 2018


Surely Die Hütte the huts sounds identical and should be accepted.. not that you would wear one I suppose.

February 4, 2015


They don't sound identical in German:

die Hütte: /ˈhʏtə/
die Hüte: /ˈhyːtə/

IMO the vowels sound about the same, but the vowel in the second word is a long one.

it sounded like dee-ay hoo-tay. is that right. the e in die seemed to have been stressed upon.

March 1, 2014


The "ü" must be pronounced longer. The first time I heard it, it sounded like "die Hütte" (the Cottage).

May 19, 2016


Pronunciations are different in slow and normal audio. 'H' sound is heard in slow but not in normal. Is there a merging of words during pronouncing.

Paging Valve.

I am 12 and it is easy to me

July 27, 2015


It's probably easy for you because you're 12. Your younger brain is much better at learning languages than older ones. :)

Where does "Hüten" fit in all this? o- o

August 22, 2015


Hmm, I think the plural dative would be "den Hüten" ? As in "mit den Hüten" (with the hats).

Why "The caps" is wrong?

September 29, 2013


I think 'the caps' would be 'die Mützen', isn' it?

June 13, 2015


Yes, but I've also seen caps in German. Apparently the english word is also used.

December 13, 2015


For me, "cap" and "hat" are different types of head-gear. I wonder if it's the same in German.

September 23, 2014


I agree...All caps (in this context) are hats, but not the other way around.

December 21, 2014


Well, "The caps" is more like "Die Kappen", "Die Käppis" or "Die Mützen".

May 19, 2016


when I say the word Hüte I automatically start whistling on Hü sound,,, and I found it hillarious

January 7, 2015


I put "these hats" and got wrong. Duo said that I used plural "hats" instead of singular "hat". Could anyone explain me, please, what's wrong? English is not my native language.

September 16, 2015


Well, "these" is wrong, because then it would be "diese Hüte".

May 19, 2016


I set my secondary mic to Deutsch, this dang thing... Ughh... I said "Die Hüte" and it came up. And as i pressed "check" it changed to peashooter.

December 6, 2015


Are singular's more often der or das?

November 29, 2016


This blog post states that the distribution for the German words ranks the relevant words in the order der > die > das with the caveat that words like der can also appear as an inflection in front of a feminine noun:
„das Auto der Frau“ – “the woman's car”

If you count the nouns' gender the ranking becomes feminine > masculine > neuter

December 16, 2016


How do you know if a word should have die, der, das, or den? I am confused...

April 17, 2017


The inflection of the article depends on the grammatical gender, number and case. As for the grammatical gender of the nouns, you would have to learn them along with the translation of each noun. Tough, there are some rules of thumb for which nouns have which gender. And this article should provide a short introduction into the four German grammatical cases.

It sounds as though the faster voice says Der and the slower Die!

January 18, 2019


The regular-paced audio sounded like "der Hüte" which I knew was wrong, so I listened to the slow version and sure enough it was "die". The regular speed still sounds wrong to me!

May 6, 2019


the sound was terrible. It sounded like "die anrepe" I realize that the German ü is hard to pronounce, but..."anrepe"?

July 1, 2019


The male voice here is very clear and correctly pronounces "die Hüte", but the female voice I hear on my computer, even in slow speech is unintelligible.

July 1, 2019


It was a listening exercise so i wrote Die Hütte for cottage

July 14, 2019


how come "die hosen hat einen fleck" is wrong?
