"Ja, aus einigen werden Männer."
I think this one would literally translate into: "Yes, from some will become men"
I can't see how 'aus einigen' can mean 'some'. The literal meaning is 'out of united'. If items are united, where does 'some' come into it?
Not 100% sure, but I think 'aus einigen' actually is more like 'some OF them'. Good question though.
Einigen in the verb form does mean unite/united. But it also means 'some' - when it's not a verb.
Thanks, I think you're probably right. Learning German expressions and turns of phrase is one of the hardest thinks in this exercise. Finding their English equivalences is a bit of a guessing game.
what occurs if we take off the "aus"? Would it be wrong if it is simply "Einigen werden Männer"? I did not grasp the 'aus' here.
