The sentence is right, the hint for "deine" is wrong. The hint says "deine" is "your (masculine)", when deine is never masculine, is femenin or plural:
m. dein f. deine n. dein pl. deine
Deine is "your (femenine)" in this case.
could it be "Es ist deine Jacke nicht", couldn't it? when may I know where to put the "nicht"?
Because the "nicht" has to follow the verb "ist" to show that it "is not". If you said "it is your jacket not" in English, that is also weird and incorrect.
Nearly correct. If you would like to translate "This is not your jacket", that would be "Dies ist nicht deine Jacke". "Das ist nicht deine Jacke" would be "That is not your jacket".
"Dies ist nicht deine Jacke" is correct (meaning "this" is not your jacket), but in everyday language it sounds old-fashioned and we say "Das ist nicht deine Jacke" for either "this" or "that"
Why is the nicht in front of the direct object in this case. I thought nicht goes at the end of the sentence
If your wondering why nicht seems to go all over the place, it is actually really consistent. After a quick google search, I found this website that does a decent job in explaining the concept of nicht: http://german.about.com/od/grammar/a/The-Position-Of-Nicht.htm
Nicht is never at the end of the sentence except in some questions if you want to point it out, e.g. "Siehst du die Jacke nicht ?" - "Don't you see the jacket ?"
It could be, but personally I would use "coat" for "Mantel" and "jacket" for "Jacke".
So if I understand it right, A noun which Sein verb links to, placed rightafter Sein verb is not accusative but it is always nominative? for example. Ich bin der kind. <- in here 'der kind' is also nominative ? and is the 'der kind' Subject or Object?
I had to play the recording over & over to hear exactly what was said, it's NOT clear enough!
I agree. I kept hearing something along the lines of "yage" no K sound at all. Maybe just my lack of sleep or the time of night, but I played it 20 times and was so sure it was some kind of g sound
To me it sounds a "k" it's a relaxed one. When learning other languages it's common these mishearings.
I thought coat was "Mantel" and jacket was "Jacke". So, "Jacke" is jacket or coat?
I agree! I took German for one semester once and my teacher said even for inanimate objects the pronoun should match the gender.
So does 'diene' pertain to a masculine pronoun and 'dien' pertain to a neuter pronoun? In another sentence 'dien Kind' was used but now 'diene Jacke' is used. If not, what is the key to these?
no, "deine" is used with feminine and plural nouns. Therefore, you have "deine jacke".
Deine pertains to feminen, while dein pertains to both Neutered and Masculin, in the Nominativ case.
"Es" means "it." "Das" means "the," "that," or "this" depending on the context.
I am confused...Duo states "Es ist nicht deine Jacke" and I translated it as "It is not your jacket" and was wrong. Why?
Aechos, "jacke" is feminine in German and that is why you have "deine" before it. (https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/german-english/jacke)
As far as the translation of the sentence goes, I think admin guys of Duolingo need to accept "the jacket is not yours" as a true utterance and translation as well, unless they reject it as incorrect for emphasis's sake, which can be tolerated.
"das" means "this" , "that", "these", "those", and "the" if the word is neuter (DAS Muedchen, DAS Feuer)
Es means "it"
