11.8 question

Hi Paul Now I'm stuck on the Adjective Endings section: In the "My Level" section the answer "Ich trage einen blauen Pullover" was correct ....this makes sense. In the Language quiz section of the lesson (question #9) the correct answer for a similar sentence was given as "Ich trage Morgen mein neues Kleid". Isn't my new dress also an accusative? I answered "Ich trage Morgen meinem neuen Kleid". Hilfe!

Hi Shannon, "Ich trage Morgen mein neues Kleid" is correct. Your right "Mein neues Kleid" and "einen blauen Pullover" are accusative. You answered with "meinem neuen Kleid" but thats dative. The question words for the dative are to whom (“wem”) or what (“was”). Lieben Gruss Paul

Thanks Paul...then you need to correct the written material in the lesson for Neuter ein words as well as the masculine ein words (and maybe even the feminine)....the neuter and the dative examples for adjectives with ein/eine/kein have been switched around. I read Cat O's query about the masculine words in that lesson and assumed (bad move) that the feminine and neuter examples were fine. :) Shannon

Hi Shannon, Yes in the list for adjectives with indefinite articles (ein, eine) or kein, dative and accusative were switched in all genders in singular and plural. Thank you for pointing it out to me. It has been corrected now. Liebe Grüsse Paul
