1 The Secret of the German Language Lesson 8: Today we have a special guest: That crazy German teacher that wrote all of these stories. Thats right: Das Gesicht von Wahnsinn! We go back to a lesson we had when we first started learning German. That makes todays lesson really easy, right?

2 The Secret of the German Language Do you remember our Vor und hinter song? Lets sing it! Okay, well theres another version, a rhyme, by the face of insanity! Want to see it?

3 The Secret of the German Language He has a reason for saying either/or position at the end of the rhyme. Now youre going to find out that secret, too! So get out your preliminary notes and add these prepositions.

4 The Secret of the German Language AC/DC Prepositions An - on (vertically) Auf - on (horizontally) Hinter - behind In - in Neben - near/next to Über - over Unter - under Vor - in front of/before Zwischen - between

5 The Secret of the German Language The AC/DC means that these prepositions can be either accusative (NESE) or dative (MRMN). The essential idea is that if the sentence indicates motion/placement/action/transition the prepositions take the accusative (NESE). If the sentence just describes a condition or position, the prepositions take the dative (MRMN). Dative is stative

6 R ES E NES E MRMN +n S +s R R -e -en masculine feminineneuterplural adjective Endings Nominative (Subject) Accusative (Direct Object) Dative (Indirect Object) Genitive (Possessive) So if you take the first one (an) you can have sentences like these: The teacher hangs the poster on the wall. The poster hangs on the wall.

7 R ES E NES E MRMN +n S +s R R -e -en masculine feminineneuterplural adjective Endings Nominative (Subject) Accusative (Direct Object) Dative (Indirect Object) Genitive (Possessive) The teacher hangs the poster on the wall. The poster hangs on the wall. The first sentence shows a placement. The first sentence would therefore use the accusative (NESE)

8 R ES E NES E MRMN +n S +s R R -e -en masculine feminineneuterplural adjective Endings Nominative (Subject) Accusative (Direct Object) Dative (Indirect Object) Genitive (Possessive) The teacher hangs the poster on the wall. The poster hangs on the wall. So the first sentence would be: Die Lehrerin hängt das Poster an die Wand.

9 R ES E NES E MRMN +n S +s R R -e -en masculine feminineneuterplural adjective Endings Nominative (Subject) Accusative (Direct Object) Dative (Indirect Object) Genitive (Possessive) The teacher hangs the poster on the wall. The poster hangs on the wall. The second sentence shows the condition or position of the poster without any placement. This uses the dative (MRMN)

10 R ES E NES E MRMN +n S +s R R -e -en masculine feminineneuterplural adjective Endings Nominative (Subject) Accusative (Direct Object) Dative (Indirect Object) Genitive (Possessive) The teacher hangs the poster on the wall. The poster hangs on the wall. Therefore the second sentence would be: Das Poster hängt an der Wand.

11 R ES E NES E MRMN +n S +s R R -e -en masculine feminineneuterplural adjective Endings Nominative (Subject) Accusative (Direct Object) Dative (Indirect Object) Genitive (Possessive) Now compare both: Die Lehrerin hängt das Poster an die Wand. Das Poster hängt an der Wand.

12 R ES E NES E MRMN +n S +s R R -e -en masculine feminineneuterplural adjective Endings Nominative (Subject) Accusative (Direct Object) Dative (Indirect Object) Genitive (Possessive) Thats why these prepositions can be AC/DC.
