I didn't even think about it. "I am groot" was just all my mind could come up with and I hit enter immediately.
Imagine what Dutch speaking people must have been thinking when he said that.
Good thing here films normally get subtitles and are not dubbed like it is normal in some countries.
both groot and lang are used to describe tall? I thought if lang is for tall, then groot should rather be fat.
Indeed, when referring to tall people both groot and lang are fine, lang only refers to the length of the person, groot can also refer to general size of someone (which often goes hand in hand with length). A fat person is dik in Dutch.
For tall buildings hoog is usually used (groot has more emphasis on the overall size, not specifically the height).
Bedankt. Your comparison really makes sense. I guess what made me confused is also that in German only groß can used to describe a tall person.
If a person is is tall and slim we also can say "lang" in German. "Groß" is more general.
I get when to add an e or not, but whats the difference between groot and grote and any other permutations there may be?
Something is associated wrongly: I typed exactly "Ik ben groot" and it was marked wrong. :(
