I though it said die veir männer kaufen mich, and I was a little stunned with how real things got there. Then i realized it said milch and all was right again.
Hello, I'm am wondering about the "die" part. I'm not sure if I've learned this already and have forgotten or not, but is it "die" because of Männer (i.e. Der Mann becomes Die Männer for plural) or is it because it is saying "the four" and four is counted as a plural?
Thank you for any help :)
I believe it's because Männer is plural, but I could be wrong. I'm just re-learning after a 20 year hiatus.
Thanks for the reply :) I thought something similar, but I wasn't quite sure.
It's for both reasons. The fact that it says vier and the fact that it says Männer both convey that it's plural and therefore you have to use Die
A Clockwork Orange anyone? (Please add me as friend if you got the reference I need to accomplish the quest..)
Is this sentence correct? 'Die vier Männer' doesn't sound good to my ears, can anyone clarify? Even though I expect it probably is right.
"Shop" does not take an object. "I'm shopping" but not "I'm shopping books".
And "shop" does not mean "buy, purchase" (the act of handing over money) -- it's more like the whole "experience" of looking around the shop, considering what to buy, and then finally paying for your shopping.
So, could "Ich kaufe" mean "I'm shopping" because "kaufe" has no object? I have seen that "kaufen" might mean a lot of things ("acquire" too), but I do not know how to use these meanings and in what context. This is a problem I have for nearly every word from the dictionary.
