The Grammar Structure in German Language

The grammar structure in German language. Grammar is a widely misinterpreted writing tool. Grammar is the rules of language. The system of grammar rules apply by which words form and string together to make a working sentence. Grammar is particular sets of language rules, which when speaking or writing the language or analysis of these rules are effective based on the writers of these rules guidelines. This is the quality of language, which when spoken or written in the form of language relates to “accepted” standards or correct language. Grammar is a systematic pool of elementary principles outlined by the subjects and interrelationships.

As you can see, grammar is often misunderstood and misinterpreted, since the man or woman that wrote these principles and rules, forget to mention the world of cultures, ethnics, races, and so on. Still, the rules apply, yet the change in various countries.

For instance, in our country verbs is words indicating action or state, showing some meaning that takes place or indicates existence of the state of conditions. It is parts of our language or speech that words belong to, and sometimes these predicates of sentences part clauses to include verbs while excluding subjects of the verb.

The rules of grammar change in some ways when you visit foreign countries and speak their language. Verbs for example in Germany have strong/weak meaning, verb stem endings change, and so on. In English, the words are weak or strong also, yet we see them as passive and/or active. When we write sentences, which include various aspects of grammar outlined in the rule as wrong, we are said to be wrong, yet in Germany, these rules do not always apply.

Let’s review verbs so that we can see how they change in some countries:

German verb interpretation:
English Verb Interpretation:

In English and German dative verbs is a grammatical form, which nouns, pronouns and various other parts of speech indicate indirect objects of verbs used after particular prepositions. Now we use dative verbs everyday in our languages despite which country we live in, yet many of us are unaware of the usage.

Dative verbs outline intransitive and when it follows the German Case System, it changes.

Let’s review:

The English dative in the structure of grammar is rarely pointed out, which is why most people do not realize what they are using when they speak. Dative verbs is seen in the following example: opposite. So when you say a sentence with opposite embedded in it, you are using dative verbs. However, German points out these dative verbs often, which should also be pointed out in English, yet the English as we know falls far behind true English speaking.
Examples of Dative Verbs:
To answer – translated antworten (German)
To believe – glauben
To meet – begegnen
To help – helfen
To obey – gehorchen
To forgive – verzeihen
To follow – folgen
To thank – danken
To trust – trauen

As you can see, you use these words almost in every sentence in your everyday speech, yet in German language dative verbs is strongly applied and recognized.

In Germany, Genitive verbs are used too. Genitive is now being learnt in America, but is often used in Germany. Possessive grammatical case, which some languages affect nouns, pronouns, adjectives and often indicates a possession. Genitive verbs when applied in German sometimes works prepositions where two-ways apply and colloquial speech is present. We see this in the following example:

Example: Instead of buying a porche, we bought a convertible.
German: Anstatt, ein porche zu kaufen, kauften uns ein Kabriolett.

Can you pick the Genitive verbs? If you said, “Instead of” then you know your genitive verbs. Next, learn the problems specifically within the German Case System.
