actually yes TH in most words of old english and even modern is transformed to D in German the word think in english becomes denken (to think) in german. another example is thank in english becomes danken (to thank) this might also go for other letter like S becomes SCH in german example sleep in english is schlafen in german.
Since they answered in the affirmative, things cleared everything up for me!
Singular: du/thee: dein/thy and deine/thyne Plural: eu/you (they also sound similar!): eure/your euer/your.
Studying German has made me want to resurrect the second person singular in English. "How art thee?" Over time, we lost it and the plural second person/formal "you" took that slot. We've been confused with awkward, technically double-plural workarounds ever since: y'all, you guys, etc.
By the way: Children is also a double plural: Childer (plural) also got tracked on the -en plural and became Childeren. Bizarre what organic language does!
Just to be clear, we have 4 cases here. 'Dein', 'Deine', 'Euer' and 'Eure'. As Marco states, the first two refer to you (sing.) while the latter two refer to you (pl.). They are further broken up because of the grammatical gender of the subject changing when made into a plural. For example- Dein Kind spielt - Your child plays Deine Kinder spielt - Your children play Euer Kind spielt - Your (pl.) child plays Euer Kinder spielt - Your (pl.) children plays
Actually, when it comes to the nominative case, euer is used with masculine/neutral singular nouns, while eure is used with feminine singular nouns plus every plural noun (since every plural noun goes with the feminine article Die)
die Villa (the villa, feminine); die Villen (the villas)
eure Villa = your villa (more than one owner)
eure Villen = your villas (more than one owner and more than one villa)
I'll give it a try. Here are tables of the various forms of possessive pronouns.
So, does Eure represents Masculine and Neuter nouns, Euer represents Feminine nouns, and Eurer is a case thing?
Can't "süß" mean sweet, too? Like, I didn't put this, but under süß it shows pretty/cute. So wont "Your children are sweet" work?
The difference is determined by gender, case and number of the word described. In German (like in many other languages) the possessive pronouns are inflected. You should finally learn the complete table. Not enough space here (you can google for it), but in the case of euer it goes: euer, eures, eurem, euren, eure, eurer, euren, eure (for male words (nom, gen, dat, acc in singular and plural). eure, eurer, eurer, eure for female words (same plural) and euer, eures, eurem, euer for neuter words.
Hello I am TOTALLY new to all this so new I am having so much trouble even following the discussion below so please be gentle with me. I have missed something important and am now all at sea (or Meer) and cannot work out the difference between eure and euer. Can someone please help me???
no, it has nothing to do with semantics or pragmatics (as being cute ot the like) but solely a question of morphology (grammar). Every German possessive pronoun or adjective (among others) changes its endings depending on gender, case and number of the qualified noun following. There is no way around learning the whole table by heart (in fact there are even three tables: weak, strong and mixed inflection). So e.g. "eure" is nominative and accusative femininum singular as well as nominative and accusative plural (any gender), whereas "euer" is nominative singular masculinum as well as nominative and accusative singular neutrum.
Thanks so much for that I have absolutely no idea what you said but it sounds so smart. When I started this course it was so great ans things made sense and I could see the pattern and rules but the further I get into it the messier it is and I don;t see the rules anymore which is doing my head in. I am hoping it will get clearer as I go along I am up to stuff atm. I am just blundering through and doing a hell of a lot of guessing and writing things down and bluffing and hoping like hell that all the audio and visual and typing and writing will all fall in to place eventually but atm my brain is leaking out my ears and everybody seems so much smarter and further ahead of me. but once again thank you for taking the time to help me :)
This has been discussed and answered quite often already. Look here https://deutsch.lingolia.com/en/grammar/pronouns/possessive-pronouns for example.

case, gender and number. You hace to decline the possessive adjectives in order to match case, gender and number:
euer Junge eure Tochter euer Kind (nominative singular masc - fem - neutr)
eures Jungen eurer Tochter eures Kindes (genitive)
eurem Jungen eurer Tochter eurem Kind (dative)
euren Jungen eure Tochter euer Kind (accusative)
eure Jungen (nominative plural) eurer Jungen (genitive) euren Jungen (dative) eure Jungen (accusative)
