**** you, Germany. **** you and your unnecessary system of the word "the"
#90 to #3 - WolfRider (05/16/2013) [-]
forgot a few

Dem, den. I swear it's ******* ridiculous.

Russian does not have the word "the"

It does not exist in the language.
User avatar #48 to #47 - djequalizee (05/16/2013) [-]
Well when you think about it it has no actual meaning in the first place
User avatar #50 to #48 - doctorque (05/16/2013) [-]
It really doesn't.
User avatar #52 to #50 - djequalizee (05/16/2013) [-]
Wow, seriously, it's just a filler. You can say anything you want without using "the" and still get the message across. It just sounds weird because we're so used to it.
User avatar #53 to #52 - doctorque (05/16/2013) [-]
All Latin influenced languages have it.

Well, I may be forgetting one but yeah.

der, die, das, den, dem, des....
User avatar #38 to #3 - bestminionever (05/16/2013) [-]
What about "ein" and "eine?"
#37 to #3 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/16/2013) [-]
they are called definite articles
User avatar #29 to #3 - greengreg (05/16/2013) [-]
German has so many words for "the" because the article declines into different grammatical cases, which we don't really have in English. For example, in languages like Greek, Ό, Του, Τω, Τον, Ώ, Οί, Τοις, Τους, and Των all mean "The". (And those are only the masculine forms.) Declension actually occurs in many if not most Indo-European languages, but native English speakers don't realize it.

the german case is slightly harder though because "die" is both plural and neutral (the third case of "the" in german that french doesn't have)
User avatar #74 to #44 - srskate ONLINE (05/16/2013) [-]
ha, and der is feminine in the dative case.

I am scraping by right now in french. I think if I wasnt forced to learn it I would enjoy it more
User avatar #28 to #21 - IrishAssassin (05/16/2013) [-]
You managed to get Cs? You must be a genius! I've gotten 1 A in French ever in 5 years. Almost entirely Ds.
User avatar #16 to #3 - arandomanon ONLINE (05/15/2013) [-]
Spanish:
Él
La
Lo
Las
Los
All of them mean "the".
User avatar #92 to #65 - arandomanon ONLINE (05/16/2013) [-]
True. My bad
User avatar #27 to #16 - arandomanon ONLINE (05/16/2013) [-]
I find amusing how I'm being thumbed down for no reason because what I stated is true.
User avatar #18 to #16 - imakejewburgers (05/15/2013) [-]
When is lo used as the? I'm not very good at spanish. I thought lo was just it.
User avatar #19 to #18 - arandomanon ONLINE (05/15/2013) [-]
"It" is "ello" not "lo". "Lo" is a neutral gender article wich is used when you want to substantivate an adjetive. For example, "this is the best" would be "ésto es lo mejor". "Lo" can be also used as pronoun.
User avatar #20 to #19 - ancano ONLINE (05/16/2013) [-]
ello is he
not it
I can't emphasize that enough.
there is no article for it, there are objects though, such as lo.

ello me llama
can only mean he called me

me llama
can mean either he called me, or it called me.
User avatar #56 to #20 - basicargentinian (05/16/2013) [-]
a)you messed up translations
"ello" / "eso" (same thing, diferent dialicts) are spanish for "that"
ello me llama can only translate to "it calls me"

b)You messed up the verb tense
"me llama" is presnt, it translates "he calls me"
"he called me" translates to "el me llamo", where you can leave out the "el".
#24 to #20 - arandomanon ONLINE (05/16/2013) [-]
You gonna teach me Spanish man? For real? I'm Spanish and "Ello" is not "he" idiot. "Él" is "he". Go try teach when you know what you're talking about retard. Go ask whoever if you don't believe me. "Ello" is "it".
User avatar #22 to #20 - polifemo (05/16/2013) [-]
actually "el" is he and "él" is a pronoum as example " el perro se cagó en mi sala, con él estava el hijueputa pajaro"
User avatar #34 to #22 - kakariko (05/16/2013) [-]
No.

"Él" is "He" and "el" is for male objects.
User avatar #26 to #22 - arandomanon ONLINE (05/16/2013) [-]
You used correctly your example but your explanation is wrong. "Él" is "he" and "el" is "the" for male objects.
User avatar #94 to #26 - polifemo (05/16/2013) [-]
sorry but "él" is a pronoun as the way you can replace it in place of a noun
User avatar #95 to #94 - arandomanon ONLINE (05/16/2013) [-]
it's also "he" lol
#5 to #3 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/15/2013) [-]
You spelled precisely wrong.
User avatar #6 to #5 - djequalizee (05/15/2013) [-]
Actually i think the word you were looking for is "precise."
User avatar #8 to #6 - desmondaltairezio (05/15/2013) [-]
and where is it suppose to go?
User avatar #9 to #8 - djequalizee (05/15/2013) [-]
Where unnecessary is, i'm guessing.
User avatar #10 to #9 - PIPExDAD (05/15/2013) [-]
its for genders of objects
User avatar #11 to #10 - djequalizee (05/15/2013) [-]
I know, i take German. I just find it unnecessary.
#41 to #11 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/16/2013) [-]
You're wrong.
User avatar #42 to #41 - djequalizee (05/16/2013) [-]
Why?
User avatar #15 to #11 - basicargentinian (05/15/2013) [-]
Spanish, Italian and French also have gender versions of "the"
User avatar #97 to #15 - desmondaltairezio (05/17/2013) [-]
so
everyone has an appendix
that doesnt make it necessary
User avatar #98 to #97 - basicargentinian (05/17/2013) [-]
the appendix is a useless vestige left there by evolution

Our "the" informs of the gender, not useless.
User avatar #99 to #98 - desmondaltairezio (05/17/2013) [-]
i didnt say useless did i?
i said it was not necessary
big difference
User avatar #100 to #99 - basicargentinian (05/18/2013) [-]
yeah, but you where comparing something useless to something usefull, while cualifying them both as unnecessary, that's a falaced argument.
#30 to #15 - dontread (05/16/2013) [-]
and the italians have some kinda secret "must use always" contract with their the's
User avatar #54 to #30 - basicargentinian (05/16/2013) [-]
I'm not sure what you mean
#96 to #54 - dontread (05/17/2013) [-]
they never miss an opportunity to use the
