I know there was already a similar question asked before, but I don't get it completely.
So, as I take it, you can exchange "The superhero is you" with "The superhero are you" without a big change in their meaning. For me, as a German native, the first one sounds wrong, but I actually see the reason why it is correct. In German, you would always say "are" because it doesn't matter which one is the subject:
- Der Superheld bist du (literally "The superhero are you")
Is it true that "The superhero are you" is also correct?
When I change the order of the sentence, can I also say it in both ways?
- "You are the superhero" (This is correct, right?)
- "You is the superhero" (Can this also be correct? Sounds wrong to me)
In German, there is no change:
- "Du bist der Superheld" (literally "You are the superhero")
I really have to say, some things in the English grammar really confuse me as a German speaker. ^^
Thank you for your help.
