Just to let you guys know, dairy products are bad for cats. I know, I love when their eyes get so big and they become very cute, but it's bad for them and they can become sick. (I have a cat and she's 81 years old in cat years [= 19 human years])
Is this correct? "Jede Katze mag Milch" = Every cat likes milk "Alles Katzen mögen milk" = All cats like milk
No. "Alle Katzen mögen Milch" would be correct. "alles" means "everything".
Jeder (masculine - last letter from 'der'). Jede (feminine - last letter from 'die'). Jedes (neuter - last letter from 'das').
From what Christian (above) says, it is the difference between each and all. It appears that 'jed-' does not have a plural form per se - its plural is declined as 'alle', 'alle', 'allen' and 'aller' in the 4 grammatical cases (N, A, D, G respectively).
Thanks for clarifying, Christian. By the same token, does "alle" have a singular? Do the words "aller" and "allem" exist for example?
Thank you very much! I had a quick question for you. Could you use "aller" (masculine singular 'all') in a sentence for me please? I'm having trouble thinking of how 'all' could be used in singular.
I believe it's mostly used in idiomatic expressions. Off the top of my head, I can only think of "Aller Anfang ist schwer" (The first step is always the hardest).
I don't think so. I guess that Jeder is used for masc and Jedes is used for neuter. Jeder Hund mag Knochen. Jedes Kleid ist schön
