almost right, but in this context "das" is an article and as such only has one s. German is a hard language indeed

Well, I usually don't care about that grammar stuff at all. I just did post this (after some thinking if I should), because apparently Michael learns German. Therefor I thought it'd be valuable for him to have a correct sentence at least. Didn't want to go any further into this topic (err, what am I doing here ?), sorry for the noise.

We could actually delve much deeper into that here, starting with 'dass' and 'das' being pronounced the exact same way, which is quite possibly the biggest hurdle for non native speakers. Then, combined with them often being used in a confusingly similar position (where English uses 'that' for both, although 'that' for 'das' was considered at least when I was at school non standard for 'which', and I still frown on people using it like that), there's a lot of room for confusion, especially for native English speakers.

German das/dass can't be more confusing than their/there/they're and similar constructs in english, but yeah even germans struggle with it sometimes (especially since we didn't learn the grammatic rules, we just learned it by speaking it -- so in a way non-natives have an advantage)

Der Faden entgleitet thematisch "leicht".
Was soll Gabe bloss denken?

Ich denke nicht, dass Gabe hier im Forum liest. Wenn, dann nur Michaels Artikel.

Im Ernst? Sind Sie auf Jungs absichtlich versucht zu 10 Seiten mehr Faden der grammatischen Analyse und-Korrektur zu beschwören?
