Hier geht es zu Teil I: Die Uhrzeit: Wie spät ist es? (Teil I)

Die Uhrzeit: Wie spät ist es? (Teil I)

You have a meeting in Germany and you don’t know what time it is?! Sprakuko helps you to ask the time in German!

Die Uhrzeit

Vocabulary:

die, Tageszeit (sg.)/-en (pl.) (daytime/-s)

Es ist Morgen. (It is morning.)

Es ist Vormittag. (It is before midday.)

Es ist Mittag. (It is midday.)

 ! Can you see any similarities between German and English?

Have a look at the internal structure of the word. Now? Can you see it?

Yes, indeed! The word structure isn’t that different.

 e.g. The combination of the preposition vor ‚before‘ and the noun Mittag (der Mittag ‚midday‘) leads to the composition Vormittag ‚before midday‘.

Linguistic hints:

In compound nouns like e.g. Vormittag (der  [m.]) the last element determines the gender of the compound noun.

A better example is the noun Tageszeit, where the first noun Tag (der Tag ‚day‘) is masculine [m.] and the latter, the noun Zeit (die Zeit ‚time‘), feminine [f.]. In this case the latter determines the gender of the compound die Tageszeit [f.], which is feminine itself.
