What does am sprung mean in a sentence?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The phrase am sprung in German means "on the jump."

In English, that use of the verb to spring would have little application, except perhaps as slang for someone who was released or broken out of jail (I am sprung from prison).

How do you reply to Wo bist du geboren?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

You were born in Germany = Sie sind in Deutschland geboren.

Are you born in Germany? = Sind sie in deutschland geboren?

=============================================

The grammatically correct form is Sie sind in Deutschland geboren worden (past participle) but this is too cumbersome even by German standards, so it is commonly reduced to Sie sind in Deutschland geboren.

Another, simpler, way of saying it is: Sie wurden in Deutschland geboren (past tense)

How do you pronounce Wie geht es Ihnen?

User Avatar

Asked by ChiaraCoscolluela

Wie bist du is the literal translation of how are you? It is not a phrase that German speakers would use in the context of asking how are you? but rather how did you..? Wie bist Du dort angekommen? / wie bist Du hier angekommen? - How did you get there/here?

How are you is wie geht's dir in German. You can answer it by saying: Gut, danke. (Fine, thanks.) If you are not feeling well, you can also say: Leider nicht so gut. (Not so good.) It's common in Germany to give an honest answer.

How do pronounce danke in German?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Literally: Danke schön (also seen as Danke schoen) means "Thanks (nicely)" with the connotation of "Thank you very much."

In US English, people have pronounced it as "donka shane", rather than "donkeh shewn" - notably in a popular 1962 song written by Bert Kaempfert with English lyrics by Milt Gabler, and sung by Wayne Newton.

What does Wo ist mein Lieb dass ich will mean in English?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

"Wo ist mein Lieb dass ich" doesn't make sense, as it translates roughly into "Where is my love that I."

mein Lieb is not a valid expression:

meine Liebe (my dear, female)

mein Lieber (my dear, male)

meine Liebste (my love, female)

mein Liebster (my love, male)

mein Liebling (my darling)
