Question about 'Sentence Structure Grammar List.'

Postby musicman1982 » 2017-06-02, 8:40

Hi, everyone!

I want to ask a question, I have found this list that might help with someone to understand the structure of a sentence in any language. I know the sentences are in English, an example the first sentence e.g 'The apple is red.' Contains a subject, verb and object. Then, someone could ask, "Can you speak that sentence as a statement or a question?, etc" I will put the list below so, if anyone can do this, it will be greatly appreciated. If not, I understand. I will write what I said in Latvian, I will do it to the best of my ability.

The apple is red

It is john’s apple

I give john the apple

we give him the apple

He give it to john

She gives it to him

is the apple red

The apples are red

I must give it to him

I want to give it to her

I’m going to know tomorrow.

I can’t eat the apple

Sveiki, visi!

Es vēlēties līdz jautājums, Es atrasts šīs teikums saraksts uz palīdzēt man ar teikums struktūra. Es zinu teikums ir uz angļu,
sākums teikums ir "ābols ir sarkans." Šīs satur objekts, verbs un mērķis. Tad, kāds varētu jautāt, "Vai jūs runāt tik teikums par paziņojums jeb jautājums?" Es griba ir saraksts zemāk.

I think I know what list you mean. It argues that you can learn a language in minutes just by having a native speaker translate a few sentences, right? It's not going to work, the only use of it is to quickly determine some very basic things about the grammar (but definetly not everything about it), and then probably only if you allready know how grammar works in different languages very well. If you acctually want to learn Latvian grammar grammar tables are far better at giving quick overview. But have fun:

The apple is red - Ābols ir sarkans

It is john’s apple - Tas ir Jāņa ābols

I give john the apple - Es dodu Jānim ābolu

we give him the apple - Mēs dodam viņam ābolu

He give it to john - Viņš dod to Jānim

She gives it to him - Viņa dod to viņam

is the apple red - Vai ābols ir sarkans?

The apples are red - Āboli ir sarkani

I must give it to him - Man ir jāiedod tas viņam

I want to give it to her - Es gribu iedot to viņai

I’m going to know tomorrow.- Es zināšu rīt

I can’t eat the apple - Es nevaru ēst ābolu
I speak:  (lv) (en) I understand some:  (de) (ru) Toying with:  (es)
