|9.4 The Indirect Object - Dative|
The third picture shows the relation of the three objects. One person is giving/renting/selling the car to another one.
|Possible constructions could be|
|The man is giving the
car to his son.
If we change the phrase and take the prepositions away it looks like this:
The man is giving the car his son.
The second phrase is still understood, but it's not perfect. The German system introduces the third declension - the Dative - to express the relation to the third indirect object.
Again the German phrase does not use any preposition, but it uses the third declension. Instead of die Frau in basic form we have der Frau.Let's have a look at the overview.
