I used to live there, but I wasnt really living? Did I exist? Did you? Does anyone? Deutsch 1 (or is it?) Herr Reierstad (or so he says) 3. Feb. 2014 (how do you REALLY know?)
Right about now, Your German teacher should be breaking out the derdiedas boards….
Right about now, You should be getting your quizzes back…….
Wichtige Frage #1: How do you talk about your past abodes?
How can you tell whether a verb is weak (ends in –t in the past tense), or if its strong (ends in –en in the past tense)? How did I say you could tell? Stark oder schwach?
Thats right, Jörg! If the verb ends in -d or –ed in the English past tense, its likely to be weak in German: – I played Tennis. – Ich habe Tennis gespielt. If it doesnt end in – d or –ed, and/or its stem vowel changes from the present tense, its likely to be strong in German: – I swam today. – Ich bin heute geschwommen.
Which brings us to wohnen: I live in Prague. – Ich wohne in Prag. I lived in Prague.. – Ich habe in Prag gewohnt.
Machmer das zusammen… Where did you live? Wo hast du gewohnt? I lived in a van down by the river. Ich habe in einem Lkw am Fluss gewohnt. Did you live in Nuremberg, Herr Von Bunkenbunken? Haben Sie in Nürnberg gewohnt, Herr Von Bunkenbunken?
And the 3 lines aint goin away nohow, neither,…… 1 st line:derdiedasdie (subj./Nominative) 2 nd line:den diedasdie (dir. obj./Accusative) 3 rd line:dem der dem den (ind. obj./Dative)
So…… ……why do we say auf dem Land, in der Stadt, usw.?
Die Antwort The following prepositions are called Wechselpraepositionen (2- way prepositions) in German. You need to copy them, by the way; they arent on the Study Guide, but I might add them…. You should feel privileged; this was previously late German 2/early German 3. Your comrades in German 2 dont know these yet! an-at, to auf-on, to hinter-behind in-in, to neben-next to über-over, about vor-before, in front of zwischen-between
2-way? Dont shoot the messenger! These are called 2-way because they use either the 2 nd or 3 rd line, based on how they are used. Its actually similar to haben vs. sein verbs: – sein: when there is motion from A-B or toward a particular goal: Ich bin zur Schule gekommen. – haben: when there is no motion Ich habe das Buch gelesen.
Similarly,…. when your verb involves motion, your prepositions object will be on the 2 nd line: – Ich gehe in die Stadt. (Its die Stadt, but die stays the same on the second line).
Aber…… When your verb isnt a motion verb, the prepositions object falls to the 3 rd line: – Ich bin in der Stadt. (die becomes der on the 3 rd line).
Speaking of stuff on the bubble,…. Students often learn the following verbs with 2-way prepositions. Im still debating whether or not theyll be fyi or ott….. liegen-to lie legen-to lay sitzen-to sit setzen-to set, place (horizontal) stehen-to stand stellen-to stand, place (vertical)
Je mehr ich spreche, desto verwirrter seid ihr. Ich habe jetzt ein Arbeitsblatt fuer euch. Macht das, dann sprechen wir.
Hausaufgabe: I will now return your long-awaited midterm writing/grammar tests. Your homework is to make corrections and return them to me on Montag. This is optional, but highly recommended.
Arent you done throwing stuff at us? Fast! This is something you dont have to do, but you need to understand it when you see it. Occasionally, German has its contractions. – Instead of in das, you can say ins: Ich gehe jetzt ins Haus. (in das Haus) – Instead of in dem, you can say im:im: Er sitzt im Wohnzimmer. (in dem Wohnzimmer) Das Fahrrad ist im Keller. (in dem Keller)
