 Having problems with numbers?

Asking and telling the Time.
 

 

What is the time? To ask what is the time, there are two possibilities.
What time is it?= Wie spät ist es? /wie viel Uhr ist es?
THOUGH Wie spät ist es? Is however more accepted.
um wie viel Uhr kommst du? – at what time are you coming?
Wann kommst du? – when are you coming?
Ich komme um……- I am coming at…
It is 3 am –es ist drei uhr vormittag
It is 3pm – es ist drei nachmittag
It is 15:00 – es ist fünfzehn uhr

Practical time
Wie spät ist es?                                                                 Wann / um wie viel Uhr kommst du?
Es ist –                                                                                    ich komme um………
7.00 – sieben uhr                                                             7.35        5 nach halb 8
7.05 – fünf nach sieben                                                 7.40        zwanzig vor 8    
7.10 – zehn nach sieben                                                7.45        viertel vor 8
7.15 – viertelnach 7                                                         7.50        zehn vor 8
7.20 – zwanzig nach 7                                                     7.55        fünf vor 8           
7.25 – fünf nach halb 8                                                   8.00        acht uhr
7.30 – halb 8                                                                       observe:- “nach – after”  “vor- to”

Prepositional Verbs + daran, woran, darauf, wovon, davon, darueber …. E.t.c.

Prepositional Verbs + daran, woran, darauf, wovon, davon, darueber …. E.t.c.

Verbs with prepositional complements or the Prepositional Verbs (Verben mit Praeposition).

In English, some verbs usually go with some or a particular preposition when it is to introduce a new noun or to complete a meaning. Even though both languages (English and German) have this kind of verbs, the complements MAY NOT correspond from one language to another. For example;

I think OF ‘something or someone’.

Ich denke AN ‘etwas oder jemand’. (an =at)

However:

I dream OF ‘something or someone’.

Ich traeume VON ‘etwas oder jemand’. (von=of)

The major difference between the prepositional verb and the separable verb is – in the case of the separable verb; the preposition goes to the end of the sentence and not before the noun.

Separable verb-

Anfangen (to start) – um 10:00 uhr fangen wir die Klasse ‘an‘.

Prepositional verb-

An etwas denken (to think of)- ich denke an die Klasse.

Futhermore you should know that, some requires the dative and some the accusative case sometimes even the nominative case.

With the nominative case;

Als etwas Geiten- Der Mann gilt als

Als etwas arbeiten- ich arbeite als angelernter Maurer.

To work as something- i am working as a Builder.

With the Accusative case;

Ich warte auf euch. (Euch= akkusative von ‘ihr’)

I am waiting for you (all).

Sie kuemmert sich um den Garten.(der Garten)

She looks after the garden (herself). (sich = reflexive pronouns)

With the dative case;

Ich wohne bei noch meiner Mutter.

I am still living at my mother’s (house).

Er traeumt immer von dir.

He is always thinking about/of you.

As in both languages, there are however some verbs that can take two complements. For example,

Work as/at – arbeite als/bei.

Freuen auf/ueber –  tobe looking forward to/to be happy about.

Ich freue mich auf das Wochenende.

I am looking forward to the weekend.

Ich freue mich ueber die vielen Geschenke.

I am happy about the many gifts.

You can find a list of more praepositional verb here.

Daran, darauf, davon, dabei + woran, worauf………..

These are called prepositional adverbs. They work to reduce or above repetition of noun (Yap, just like pronouns). When you talk about inanimate prepositional complements (things instead of people) instead of using a personal pronoun, the prefix ‘da-‘  is attached to the front of the preposition. If the preposition begins with the vowel- a, e, i, o, u or the umlauts, an ‘r’ is added to ease the pronunciation. Therefore da+ auf =darauf, da+an= daran u.s.w.

That is however used for statements. When asking a question. The prefix ‘wo-‘ is added. This workslike the English ‘what’.

Note: ‘wo-‘ and ‘da-‘ is only used with the prepositional verbs. And they are only used with objects.

Wofuer interessierst du dich? (what are you interested about?)

Ich interesiere mich fuer ein Computerspiel. (I interest myself over a computer game.)

Dafuer interessiere ich mich auch. (I interest myself over that too.)

{yeah, I know there is nothing like – I interest- but you understand me right?)

This means:

Auf was freust du dich?

Auf das Wochenende.

Auf das Wochenende freue ich mich auch.

Is the same as.

Worauf freust du dich? (What are you looking forward to?)

auf das Wochenende. (to the Weekend.)

Darauf freue ich mich. (I am looking forward to that also.)

But when you talk about people you do not say;

Woran denkst du? X

Ich denke an meinen Bruder.

Daran denke ich auch. X

Totally wrong!!!

You say;

An wen denkst du?

An meinen Bruder / Ich denke an meinen Bruder.

An ihn denke ich auch.

This might be helpful. Cases of ‘wer’

Nominative Wer … ?
Accusative (e.g + an, ueber, um, fuer, e.t. c) Wen …?
Dative (e.g +bei,+mit, von) Wem ..?

An wen denkst du?

Von wem traeumst du?

Hope it was helpful?

THE INDEFINITE PRONOUN + WELCHE, WELCHES, WELCHER

Untitled Document

The indefinite Pronoun.+ welche, welches and welcher

Hallo, wie geht es Ihnnen? Heute erklaere ich ihnen ueber das Thema- „die indefinit- und Possessivpronomen“.

Hey just kidding, you don’t expect me to do that, do you? Do what? Write in German of course. {Yeah, am funny…See them laughing at my jokes.}

Anyway, to those who didn’t understand, what was there, I wrote- hello, how are you? Today I will explain the topic- the indefinite and the possessive pronouns.

These means, how to write and say things like-

Do you have a dog? Yes, we have one.

Do you have some salt? Yes, we have some.

Take a look at these sentences below.

Hast du ein Auto (neuter)?                                                                          Do you have a car?

Ja, ich habe ein Auto.                                                                                     Yes, I have a car.

Nein, ich habe kein Auto.                                                                             No,I don’t have a car. I haven’t a car.

Ja, Hier liegt mein Auto.                                                                                Yes, Here is my car.

Now, what if we do this-

Hast du ein Auto (neuter)?                                                                          Do you have a car?

Ja, ich habe ein Auto eins.                                                                            Yes, I have one.

Nein, ich habe kein Auto keins.                                                                 No, I have none. I haven’t any.

Ja, Hier liegt mein Auto  meins.                                                                  Yes, here is my car.

So you can see that in order to share information more effectively and avoid unnecessary repetition, nouns can be replaced by pronouns- indefinite pronouns.

Therefore, a noun with an indefinite article (ein, eine) can be replaced by an indefinite pronoun; a noun with a negative article (kein, keine) can be replaced by a negative indefinite pronoun.

Now notice this part:

Nominative (singular/masculine)                              Accusative (singular/masculine)

Ist noch ein Fisch da?                                                     Hast du noch einen Fisch da?

Ja, es ist noch (ein Fisch) einer.                                     Ja, ich habe noch (einen Fisch) einen.

Nein, es ist (kein Fisch) keiner mehr da.                   Nein, ich habe (keinen Fisch) keinen mehr.

Hier, das war (mein Fisch) meiner.                              Hier, nimm (meinen Fisch) meinen.

 

Accusative (singular/masculine)                                Accusative (plural)

Gibt es ein zimmer frei?                                               Hast du Batterien(plural)?

Ja, es gibt noch (ein Zimmer) eins.                              Ja, ich habe Batterien  welche.

Nein, es gibt kein Zimmer keins mehr frei.           Nein, ich habe keine Batterien keine mehr.

Hier, das war mein Zimmer meins.                           Hier, nimm meine Batterien meine.

New words- nimm =take (imperative). War= was (past tense of is). Gibt es ..? = is there …?. Es gibt … =there is

Nominative Accusative
gender Positive indefinite Negative indefinite possessive Positive indefinite Negative Indefinite possessive
masc. Einer keiner Meiner, deiner, ihrer u.s.w Einen Keinen Meinen, deinen, ihren u.s.w
fem eine keine Meine,deine,ihre u.s.w Eine Keine Meine,deine,ihre u.s.w
neu eins keins Meins,deins,ihrs u.s.w Eins Keins Meins,deins,ihrs u.s.w
plural welche keine Meine, deine, ihre u.s.w Welche keine Meine, deine, ihre u.s.w

Just if you were wondering, u.s.w (und so weiter) is the Geman for the English e.t.c

As a rule or observation {Geman should have more observations and less rules};

.Sein ALWAYS takes the Nominative indefinite pronoun case. while

.Gibt es and haben ALWAYS takes the Accusative indefinite pronoun case.

Now for the welche, welches and welcher part.

In English, there are some nouns that do not have an indefinite article before them in speech and in the written form. But use the quantitative article “some” z.B milk, money, butter, water, tee, sugar. In English, these are called the uncountable nouns.

Just if you were wondering, z.B (zum Beispiel) is the Geman for the English e.g.

Examples –         Do you still have some water? Not do you still have a water?

Is there still some Butter? Not is there still a butter?

In Geman, the equivalent for this “some” is “welche” but it does not end there (as in English, where you only write some and that is all), you need to add an ending. This ending, like the indefinite is determined by two factors, the Gender and the Case.

Do you still have some water?                                                   Haben Sie noch Wasser (das/neuter)?

Yes, we have some.                                                                        Ja, wir haben welcheS.

No, we have none / we haven’t any.                                      Nein, wir haben keine.

Here take ours.                                                                                 Hier, nimm unsereS

Obviously, for the male nominative, you have welcheR and for the accusative you have welcheN.

Here is a table.

Nominative Accusative
gender Positive indefinite Negative indefinite possessive Positive indefinite Negative Indefinite possessive
masc Welcher keiner Meiner, deiner, ihrer u.s.w Welchen Keinen Meinen, deinen, ihren u.s.w
fem welche keine Meine,deine,ihre u.s.w Welche Keine Meine,deine,ihre u.s.w
neu welchs keins Meins,deins,ihrs u.s.w Welchs Keins Meins,deins,ihrs u.s.w
plural welche keine Meine, deine, ihre u.s.w Welche keine Meine, deine, ihre u.s.w

Here are more examples.

  1. Gibt es Zucker (masc)? – ja, es gibt welchen
  2. Gibt es Butter (fem)? – ja, es gibt welche
  3. Gibt es Wasser(neuter)? – ja, es gibt welches

Remember – es gibt ALWAYS takes the accusative.

Take the test on this lesson.

THE GERMAN DATIVE

dative
dative

Untitled Document

The dative – Der Dativ.

This topic is the hardest and toughest for German-learning students (who are not natives) to …….. misunderstand..{Did I mean understand? No, it is to misunderstand. Now, you are getting yourself confused, instead of being convinced –which I am trying to do. Yes, you are misunderstanding my understanding. [Men, am good 🙂 }

Just as in the accusative, in German, there are two things which make the nouns dative.

  1. The verb used or the function in the sentence.
  2. And the preposition.

1.  The verb used or the function in the sentence.

When something/someone receives an action indirectly or when something/someone becomes the indirectly object, it takes the dative case. This may be difficult for English speakers as though we have that in our language; it is not clearly differentiated as in German. In clearer words, in English, the accusative is the same as the dative –

Nominative Accusative Dative
I Me Me
He/she/it Him/her/it Him/her/it
You(informal, formal and plural) You You
We Us Us

While in German, this is highly differentiated as each has a different word and a little mistake as giving the accusative for the dative may make what you are trying to say wrong. For instance:

I recommend IT to you.                                                                                 Ich empfehle ES dir.

A little mistake as writing the German accusative for the dative could change the whole thing.

Here is a situation;

Your best friend just tried out a Bratwurst and says “I recommend you to it”. What do you do?

Yes, that is exactly what happens when you make the mistake of interchanging the dative for the accusative or vice versa -interchanging the accusative for the dative. {sorry, but I acknowledge there are some people who do not understand certain English phrases like that.. no offence though)

Ich empfehle DICH ihm.                                                                                                I recommend you to it.

So whenever a person…

gives someone something or give something to someone

cooks someone something or cooks something for someone.

recommends someone something or recommend something to someone.

buys someone something or buys someone a thing.

explain something to someone

The other person (in this text- someone) usually takes the dative, the first person/subject (in this text-a person) takes the nominative and finally the object (something {I am bored of writing- in this text}) takes the accusative.

But remember not all verbs like the above requires three nouns, but they are very few,  for example;

helfen- ‘to help’ e.g do you remember- koennen Sie mir helfen?

Here is a little list and example of some German verbs that takes the dative and the amount of nouns/pronouns required.

With 2 nouns – mit 3 Nomen.

Gratulieren (to congratulate)- hast du ihm schon gratuliert? Have you (already) congratulated him?

Helfen (to help)- wir helfen unserem Vater. We are helping our fater.

Danken (to thank) – ich danke euch. I thank you(all).

With 3 nouns- mit 3 Nomen.

Schenken (to send –as a present or gift)- ich schenke ihr EINE KAFFEEMASCHINE. I am sending her a coffee machine.

More examples on Dative verbs – leihen, geben, schreiben, sagen zeigen, erzaehlen, senden,

  1.                 And the preposition.

Dative Prepositions like bei (at), von (from/of), mit(with), ab(from), aus(out), gegenueber (opposite), nach (to), zu(at) and selbst  takes ONLY the dative. They are used in regular expressions or German prepositional verbs- verben mit praepositional.

While changeable prepositions (wechselpraepositionen)  like in, an (at), auf (on top of), unter (under), ueber (over), hinter (behind), vor (in front of),  zwischen (between) and neben (beside) takes the dative when they describe static motion or position.

e.g

I live at my Aunt’s (house)                                                                      Ich wohne bei meiner Tante.(fem.)

I am going to my Friend’s (house)                                                       Ich gehe zu meinem Freund(masc.)

The cloths are hanging in the wardrope                                            Die Kleider haengt in dem Schrank.(masc)

I work with a computer.                                                                                           Ich arbeitet mit einem Computer.(masc.)

So here is a table for the accusative of personal pronouns like I, you, she …..

Personal pronouns singular
I mir
You (informal) Dir
He ihm
She ihr
It ihm
You (formal) Ihr
Personal pronoun plural
We uns

THE GERMAN ACCUSATIVE CASE

akkusative

Untitled Document

Accusative – Der Akkusativ.

In German, there are two things which make nouns accusative, they are-

  1. The verb used or the function in the sentence.
  2. And the preposition.

I shall explain below;

  1.  The verb used or the function in the sentence.

When a verb describe direct action like;

`               To slap someone,

to cook something, to see something/someone,

to write something,

to eat something,

to beat someone,

to know someone/something,

to learn something. U.s.w (und so weiter- e.t.c)

so sentences like;

I am slapping him,

He is baking a cake,

They are writing a letter,

We are eating/drinking fruits/coffee,

I know her/it,

We are learning something.

The man is killing a goat..

Gabriel is slapping Jessica..U.s.w (und so weiter- e.t.c)

becomes;

Ich schlage IHN.

Er baeckt EINE KUCHEN (fem.).

Sie schreiben EINEN BRIEF (masc).

Wir  essen/trinken OBST(plural)/ EINEN KAFFEE(masc.)

Ich kenne SIE/ES

Der Mann sterbt EINE ZIEGE

Gabriel schlagt JESSICA

Note: in this text, the underlined shows the Nominative and the Uppercase, the Accusative.

  1. And the preposition.

In German, the preposition used also makes a pronoun or noun become the accusative.

Accusative Prepositions like bis (till), durch (through), fuer(for), gegen (against), ohne (without), um (at), entlang (along) takes ONLY the accusative. They are used in regular expressions or german prepositional verbs- verben mit praepositional.

While changeable prepositions (wechselpraepositionen)  like in, an (at), auf (on top of), unter (under), ueber (over), hinter (behind), vor (in front of),  zwischen (between) and neben (beside) takes the accusative when they describe motion or sometimes action.

E.g.

I am going to the toilet.                                                                 Ich gehe auf DIE TOILETTE.(fem.)

I am going over the Bridge.                                                          ich gehe ueber DIE BRUECKE.(fem.)

I am hanging the cloth in the wardrobe.                                                Ich haenge die Kleider in DEN SCHRANK (masc.).

She is putting the flowers on the table.                                 Sie haengt die Blumen auf DEN TISCH (masc.).

So here is a table for the accusative of personal pronouns like I, you, she …..

Personal pronoun singular
Me (I) Mich
You (informal) Dich
Him Ihn
Her Sie
It Es
You (formal) Sie
Personal pronouns- plural
Us Uns
You (plural – you guys/you all) Euch
Them Sie

Now here is a table for the accusative articles.

Gender Definite (the) Indefinite (a/an)

THE GERMAN NOMINATIVE CASE

Untitled Document

The Nominative, Accusative, Dative and the Genitive Case – Der Nominativ, Akkusativ, Dativ und Genitiv.
Welcome to a new episode of …of…of what?…uhm……..okay….German is easy?…. ach so…anywhere….welcome to a new episode of……of…. Could I stop saying that?…..
Well, today we shall discuss more on the German cases. In German, there are 100,000,000 cases – did I just say that?.. Sorry, there are 4 cases…. (the English has 3 – object, subject and blah blah blah. We talking German here) . This cases includes (according to order of teaching in textbooks and schools); the nominative, accusative, dative and the genitive case.
The gender and article
You should know the German has (as in English) two articles –the definite “the” and the indefinite “a, an”. But in German, the “the” may translate into “der, die or das” and the ‘a/an’ into ‘ein/eine/ eins’ {as the gender may be} [men, I love changing brackets]. So now for the gender, German has 3 genders (as in English) but they do not follow a certain rule as in English, where a man is masculine, a woman feminine and an animal/ thing neuter. In German, a thing like a computer is masculine; a young woman (lady) is neuter. And here is the bad news; you have to learn them by heart. So when you see a noun, take note of the gender. Here is the good news, the gender may not follow a certain rule but they…………. [I told you, I love making people want to hear something, didn’t I?. Well, now you know… I love suspense] are not logic defying contrary to what a blogger said.
So instead of just guessing, here is a link to the simplified way of identifying  the gender.

The Nominative – Der Nominativ.
The German Nominative in a single word is the subject or performer of an action. (is that a single word? English like German should also have exceptions!). Therefore, for sentences like;
The man is killing a goat. Der Mann sterbt eine Ziege.
Ali is a boy. Ali ist ein Junge.
Gabriel is slapping Jessica. Gabriel schlagt Jessica.
 (remember that German does not as in English add the “is or do”.{that aids typing and speaking I think. J }
The underlined words are the subject, because they are the performer of the action and so they take the nominative case. Why?
He (the man) is the one doing (killing) something.
He (Gabriel) is the one doing something (slapping) someone.
He (Ali) is something. Or something is Ali.
In English, the third example is called “the complement of a noun”. The noun, in english, functions as the;          
. Subject of a verb,  The man is killing a goat.
                . object of a verb, (receiver of the action). Gabriel is slapping Jessica.
. complement of a noun, Ali is a boy.
. prepositional blah blah blah….. in a Car.
In German, it also functions the same way.
. Subject of a verb,  Der Mann sterbt eine Ziege. (The man is killing a goat.)
                . Object of a verb, (receiver of the action). Gabriel schlagt Jessica. (Gabriel is slapping Jessica.)
. Complement of a noun, Ali ist ein Junge. (Ali is a boy.)
. prepositional blah blah blah….. in einem Auto. (in a Car)

So the nominative is the Subject of a verb and the complement.
Now here are some more examples;

  1. On the subject of a verb.

.The cat is eating the cake. Die Katze isst die Kuchen.
.A dog is barking. Ein Hund schreit.
.She is calling (ringing) her Mum. Sie ruft ihre Mutter an. Sie telefioniert ihre Mutter.
.He jumps. Er

  1. On the complement of a verb.

.I am a boy. Ich bin ein Junge.
.He is the husband. Er ist der Mann.
.She is the woman. Sie ist eine Frau.
[Wondering why I wrote the first letter of all the German nouns in uppercase/capital letter, well, that is because in German, the first letter of all nouns are ALWAYS capitalized]
So here is a table for the nominative of personal pronouns like I, you, she …..

Personal pronouns singular

I

Ich

You (informal)

Du

He

Er

She

Sie

It

Es

You (formal)

Sie

Personal pronoun plural

We

Wir

You (plural – you guys/you all)
