Hausaufgaben für 28/04/09

Word-order 1

The normal sentence word order is:  Pronoun / noun + verb + object / rest of sentence

e.g. Ich habe eine Schwester.

       Caroline isst Wurst mit Pommes.

Word-order 2

Sometimes you can change the word order.  This is called Word Order 2 or ‘inversion’.  The verb must always stay in the second position and the subject comes immediately after it.   (object/ place/ time + verb + Pronoun / noun  + rest of sentence)

e.g.  Sport finde ich anstrengend.

       Am Montag isst er oft ein Butterbrot.

      Hier spielt man Rugby.

Homework

Write these sentences in Word Order 2 (start the sentence with the underlined words):

Hausaufgaben – für 10/11tem März

Look at the Simpson’s family tree below and make at least one sentence like the examples to describe each person. 

e.g.  Maggie hat eine Schwester und einen Bruder.
         Homer ist Maggies Vater.

Use either the verb ‘haben’ (to have) or ‘sein’ (to be) to make sentences, but remember that if you use ‘haben’ you may have to use ‘einen’  with masculine words (look at previous blog post).

Also there are no apostrophes in German, so if you want to say that Lisa is Bart’s sister, you have to use one of the forms below:

Lisa ist die Schwester von Bart – Lisa is the sister from Bart

or

Lisa ist Barts Schwester – Lisa is Bart’s sister (note NO apostrophe – this -s only works with a persons real name, you can’t use it with objects)
