"Ein Kind lernt."

Translation:A child is learning.

Correct me if i am wrong. Das Kind is Neuter, so it should use ein in both Nominative and Accusative cases.

True, both accusative and nominative neuter take "ein", but that wasn't the question. The question was whether we were in the accusative case or not.

Why is this in the genitive lesson?

I was wondering the same thing, and I have no idea.

in this case, is the correct form of "ein" still accusatory because the child is the one who is learning?

December 23, 2012


The kid is doing the action. This is the nominative case not the accusative case.

what is the difference between Ein and Eine?

January 26, 2013


Ein = "a / an" before a masculine or neuter noun, in a nominative form (for neuter it remains ein also in accusative) - for example: Ein Kind, Ein Apfel. Eine = "a / an" before a feminine noun, both in nominative and accusative form. For example - Eine Zeitung, or Das Kind liest eine Zeitung.
