I'm sure 97% that it is "euer".
for Example:"Ich trage euer Hemd".

Is this correct information?? someone posted this useful table indicating Dein/e/n/s can also be plural..
Anyone else have an explanation of when to use Dein vs Eure ?
It's absolutely correct information. I think you're confused, deine can be plural, but possessed by one person, euer can be singular, but possessed by multiple people (if this makes any sense).
- Dein Hund - your dog (the dog belongs to you)
- Deine Hunde - your dogs (the dogs belong to you)
- Euer Hund - your dog (the dog belongs to you guys)
- Eure Hunde - your dogs (the dogs belong to you guys)
Does anyone know why this is 'eure' and not 'euren'? The table YahiaEssam mentioned lists 'euren' for a singular masculine noun in the accusative case, which would seem to apply here.
Is 'Milch' considered to be a plural here for some reason?
I would think "the cat drinks their milk" would have to refer to milk belonging to a third party because if the milk belonged to the cat, it would be phrased "The cat drinks its milk." However, the latter sentence would be written "Die Katze trinkt ihre Milch" and how would someone determine whether ihre mean its (regarding the cat) or her (regarding a third-party female). I guess in the context of what is happening at the time.
It has become common in English speaking to say something like "The plaintiff had their day in court" even though "plaintiff" if singular and "their" is a plural possessive. This is to avoid the seemingly taboo use of the male only gender (The plaintiff had his day in court--technically correct) and the cumbersome inclusion of both genders (The plaintiff had his/her day in court). Not sure if the his/her thing has found its way into the grammar books yet or not.
I think what bl1zl3er is trying to say is that they translate to the same in German. Both would be 'Die Katze trinkt ihre Milk', because 'ihre' can mean either 'her' or 'their'. It doesn't mean 'its', but in German the possessive adjective picks up it's gender from the subject of the statement. Die Katze is a feminine noun, so we refer to 'her milk', NOT 'it's milk' or 'his milk' (even if it is a male cat). One of the sillier rules of German.
Hope this will help you http://deutsch.lingolia.com/en/grammar/pronouns/possessive-pronouns.
euch is the accusative of ihr (plural you), so that doesn't work here. euer/eure/euren are possessive pronouns like mein/meine/meinen, all of which follow the ein declension:
- nominative: mein Vater - mein Kind - meine Mutter
- accusative: meinen Vater - mein Kind - meine Mutter
- nominative: euer Vater - euer Kind - eure Mutter
- accusative: euren Vater - euer Kind - eure Mutter
"the cat drinks you milk" :: http://www.duolingo.com/jobs - UI/UX Designer
WRONG. (The picture at the bottom of the page is ugly but the rest is quite OK.) What you need is a programmer who solves how to handle typos and errors on the side of the teaching language (here it is English). Do I know English? Yes. Or at least I'm not here to learn that. "the cat drinks you milk" is meaningless and even "tha cat drink you milk" is also acceptable. Giving a warning or asking for a correction is fine. But flunking someone because of sloppy typeing is just completely wrong.
I even tried to catch this you/your with a screencast. (No luck. Murphy rulz.)
You know it's ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ annoying when you know the answer, it is corrent yet you fail. I need to redo the exercices anyway but the feeling is quite different. 8 or 9 times out of 10 I lose my hearts because of typos. This is rude; called punishment and not supporting or helpful. Warnings, giving better solutions... and repetition will do its job.
I will be kicked, it will be deleted but you have to know: this is a problem.
❤❤❤❤ the ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤. Now I'm sure someone will read this and do something about it (or my account) - and, oh please, meanwhile correct my English grammar as usual. :)
Ps: Thanks it was fun and annoying. (Dont waste your time: my email doesnt work and I dont plan "Login".)
