WEINLESE

Die Weinlese findet in Deutschland im Oktober und November statt. Die Weintrauben werden in der Traubenmühle zerquetscht und dann in der Kelter ausgepresst. Die Arbeiter haben viel zu tun und müssen vom frühen Morgen bis zum späten Abend die Weintrauben abschneiden und zur Kelter tragen.

CHAPTER 2

THE DEFINITE ARTICLE

(Continued from Lesson I)

masc.:der Mann, der Wein, der Tee

fem.:die Frau, die Milch, die Limonade

neut.:das Kind, das Bier, das Wasser.


Masculine and feminine do not always man male and female in German. The names of many things are masculine and therefore are used in connection with der. The names of many other things are feminine and therefore used with die. Many others are neuter and have das as their definite article.

Note.—Although most male beings are masculine and most females feminine in German, there are a few which are neuter. The most important ones are: das Kind (kint) = the child;das Mädchen (mayt?chen) = the girl, the maid;das Fräulein (froy'-lin) =the young lady, miss;das Weib (vip) = the woman, (sometimes wife).


(1) STATEMENTS (2) QUESTIONS (3) NEGATIONS

(1) Er isst Fleisch =He eats meat; he is eating meat.Sie trinkt Tee =She drinks tea; she is drinking tea. No difference is made in German betweenhe eats and he is eating, he drinks and he is drinking, etc.

(2) Isst er Fleisch?=Does he eat meat?; is he eating meat?Was trinkt sie? =What does she drink?;what is she drinking? For does he eat? say eats he? =isst er?; for does she drink? say drinks she? =trinkt sie? and so on for all similar sentences.

(3) Er isst nicht =He does not eat; he is not eating.Sie trinkt nicht =She does not drink; she is not drinking. He does not ear= he eats not =er isst nicht;she does not drink milk=she drinks not milk =sie trinkt nicht Miich, etc.

Note.—The verb to do is not used, as it is in English, to form questions and to make negative statements. I do not smoke must be turned into I smoke not; she does not drink beer into she drinks not beer(sie trinkt nicht Bier).Does he smoke? must be turned into smokes he? (raucht er?).


HOW TO TRANSLATE IT AND THEY

Care must be taken when translating it. As nouns may be masculine, feminine or neuter, use er when it stands for a masculine noun, sie when it stands for a feminine noun, and es for a neuter. For example, when translating it is good the translation of it will depend on the gender of the noun it stands for. If it stands for the tea you will have to say er ist gut, because tea is masculine in German: der Tee. If it is good refers to die Milch the correct German translation will be sie ist gut. If it stands for das Bier or das Buch you will have to say es ist gut.

Note that no such distinction is made for the translation of they, which is always sie. To know whether sie means she or they, look at the word that follows: sie ist means she is;sie sind means they are.

KARTE VON EUROPA—MAP OF EUROPE

This map will help you to become familiar with the German names of European countries and some of the places in them. Most of the names shown can be identified without difficulty, but, as you can see, there are many which undergo a considerable change and are not so easily linked with the English names that are familiar to us.

Here is an alphabetical list, with English equivalents, of some that are perhaps not so obvious:

BAYERISCHES GASTHAUS

Dies ist ein Gasthaus in Dinkelsbühl, einem kleinen bayerischen Städtchen, das wegen seiner schönen, altertümlichen Häuser viel von Fremden besucht wird. Obwohl dieses Gasthaus kaum zu den altertümlichen Gebäuden gehört, passt es doch mit seinem hohen Giebel in den Rahmen der mittelalterlichen Stadt.

CHAPTER 3

Herr Murdoch ist ein Schotte (sho'-t) = Scotsman.

Frau Murdoch ist eine Schottin (sho'-tin) = Scotswoman.

Herr O'Connor ist ein Ire (ee'-re) = Irishman.

Frau O'Connor ist eine lrin (ee'-rin) = Irishwoman.

Herr Griffiths ist ein Walliser (va-lee'-zer) = Welshman.

Frau Griffiths ist eine Walliserin (va-lee'-ze-rin) = Welshwoman.


MALE AND FEMALE

Der Lehrer= the teacher (man).

Die Lehrerin = the teacher (woman).

Der Kanadier = the Canadian (man).

Die Kanadierin = the Canadian (woman).


When you say in English I am meeting a friend you do not disclose whether it is a man or a woman you are meeting. Such ambiguity is rarely met in German. It is either Freund (froynt) or Freundin (froyn?-din) ;Schüler or Schülerin; Engländer or Engländerin; Amerikaner or Amerikanerin. Only the female counterpart to Deutscher does not take the ending -in; it is simply Deutsche.

Herr Jones ist ein Amerikaner (ah-may-rec- kah'-ner) = American (man).

Frau Jones ist eine Amerikanerin (ah-may- ree-kah'-ne-rin) = American (woman).

Herr Strauss ist ein Osterreicher ([TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]) = Austrian (man).

Frau Strauss ist eine Österreicherin ([TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] - ster-rich-e-rin) = Austrian (woman).

Herr Steiner ist ein Schweizer (shvits'-er) =Swiss (man)

Frau Steiner ist eine Schweizerin (shvts'-e-rin) = Swiss (woman).


DIMINUTIVES

All nouns ending in -chen or -lein are neuter. Such words are called diminutives. Ein Söhnchen = a little son;einTöchterchen = a little daughter.

One can add the endings -chen or -lein to almost every noun to form a diminutive; e.g.: ein Buch =a book;ein Büchlein = a small book, booklet;ein Tischlein = a little table;ein Stühlchen = a little chair, etc. (Compare English lambkin, duckling, booklet, etc.)

Note that when -chen or -lein is added, a usually changes to ä, o to ö, u to ü and au to äu. This modification is called Umlaut (pronounced [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]).

Der Hund= the dog;das Hündchen = the puppy;die Katze = the cat;das Katzchen = the kitten;das Haus = the house;das Häuschen = the cottage.

Whether -chen or -lein is added depends on whatever form is easier to pronounce. -chen is the more usual ending, but as it would be difficult to pronounce it after another ch the diminutive of Buch is invariably Büchlein.

You can also add -chen or -lein after proper names. Hänslein (hents'-lin) or Hänschen (hents'-chen) would be the endearing form for Hans, Hildchen for Hilde, etc. (Compare English Jimmy, Tommy, Jackie, Rosie, Jenny, etc.).


UMLAUT

a, o, u, or au with two dots on them are examples of Umlaut. The Umlaut changes the pronunciation of

a (ah) to ä (a as in gate. When ä is short it is like e in get).

o (oh) to ö (ay said with rounded lips: given in our imitated pronunciation as [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. When short, it is like e in her, shown in our system by [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]).

u (oo) to ü (ee with rounded lips: given in our imitated pronunciation as. When short, it is like i with lips rounded, shown in our system by [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]).

au (ow as in how) to äu (oy as in joy).


HOW TO TRANSLATE A, AN (THE INDEFINITE ARTICLE)

The indefinite article (a, an) is ein with masculine and neuter nouns, eine with feminines.


WAS KOSTET DER KOHL?

Kohl ist gesund und preiswert. Dieser Gemüsehändler sieht gewiss gut genährt aus und ist eine gute Reklame für seine Ware.

    Great for DIY people

    The way they set up the information flow, is like how you learned your native language. Start with simple words. Then vowels, letters, sounds. And finally phrases.

    What a disappointment

    Rather than getting a nice ebook sort of format, i got tiny pictures of each page that are smaller than the pages in the paper edition. Buy in haste, repent at leisure. Pity is the book itself is great. That's why spent the money for an ebook. Should have quite while i was ahead. Don't see a way to preview the thing and B&N doesn't give refunds. My mistake, believing anything i ordered would be great.
