What is the difference between Herr and Herrn

Hi Horne,

Herrn is the shortcut of 'dem Herr' which is dativ case.
So instead of:"sagen sie dem Herr Weber am Montag klingt gut." -> "tell Mr Weber on monday sounds good." you could say: "sagen sie Herrn Weber am Montag klingt gut."

Hope that helps!

Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort, aber warum Dativ ? Sagen sie dem Herr Weber
