Does this sentence mean the fruit tomato is round, all tomatoes are round? Cause that's the way I'd say it - "the tomato", not "a tomato". Not a native english speaker, so just wondering...
You're not talking about a specific tomato here, that's why you use "Eine Tomate"; if you wanted to refer to all tomatoes in general, you'd use "Tomaten sind rund" or "Alle Tomaten sind rund", which translate into the also correct "Tomatoes are round" or "All tomatoes are round", respectively.
So "A tomato is round "/"Eine tomate ist rund" could mean "Tomatoes are round"/"Tomaten sind rund", it doesn't matter which one I'll say? Are there other cases in which I could use this sentence?
I imagine the context being a kindergarten class where the kids are learning their shapes. Or something like that.
"What is an example of something that is round?" "A tomato is round!"
Eine Tomate ist häufig rund, aber nicht immer. A tomato is usually round, but not always. Is that correct? :-) Google Translate tells me this means " A tomato is often around, but not always." Wha . . .? Is it better to use " oft" rather than "häufig"?
"Tomatoe" is not a word. One tomato > Two tomatoes. There's no such thing as "tomatoe".
That's the guy! It's been so long I couldn't even remember how to spell his name....
