German Misc. Basics: Lesson 7
Recall before how nein means no. Use kein for not a, not any, none. Be sure to decline kein just as you wound with ein.
The word for the weapon is die Waffe
The word for pencil is der Bleistift
The word for or is oder
Note that we’ve been using the indefinite articles eine and ein when using kein. When using definite articles or possessive pronouns, use nicht for not.
The word for uncle is der Onkel
The phrase at home is zu Hause. Home is das Haus. Haus is special when it comes to zu Hause or nach Hause. Normally, Haus in the dative isn’t declined, but for reasons that I won’t get into, zu Hause and nach Hause are special with the e hanging on the end.
The phrase far from here is weit von hier
Recall before how we had dort meaning there. Da is another word for there.
Were you wondering whether or not to use a definite article with a name? It all depends on the dialect. For purposes of this course, just use the definite article when using a name.
