when the noun is in plural, we always put onze independently of het or de word, like 'onze kinderen'(het kind) or 'onze schapen'(het schap), isn't it?
Out of all the lessons so far, the possessives are quite tricky, this is my 4th time in a row going through them through the strengthening skills option lol.
you use ons for het nouns and onze for de nouns... For example: Ons paard (Het paard) Onze hond (De hond)
If it is " het schaap " , why is the answer not " ons schapen ". I thought that if the noun was " het " the possessive would be "ons "
Plural nouns always take de, regardless of whether or the singular takes de or het. So it's het schaap, but de schapen.
Thanks for this clarification. This would be a useful note under the ons/onze note in the notes section.
Why Sheeps is wrong? That is how u say plural sheep? Right? If Schaap is Sheep Than Schapen must be Sheeps? Right?
Haha, english gettng into the way of learning another lgg! I understand you, English is not my first language either and it is sometimes a struggle for learning another lgg. The plural of sheep is sheep like the plural of fish is fish and of you is you.
Lol, damn, than i have to practice my english too :P :P And to think that i was so proud with my english :P
"Lol, damn, then I have to practise my English too :P :P And to think that I was so proud of my English."
Actually "practice" as a verb is correct in US English – let's not be any more confusing than necessary. ;) For your information, xaxiAxaxi, it is correct in UK English to distinguish between "practice" (the noun) and "practise" (the verb), but in US English both of them are spelled with a C.
