What's the opposite of the expression 'Du hast Rechts.' meaning You're right? How should I say 'I was wrong'. Worthy enough for an entry. Ferike333 20:17, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

The expression is "Du hast Recht." meaning "You are right." literally "You have (the) right.". Rechts with an s is either the genitive or as rechts it means right as in the direction right or left. The opposite is "Du hast Unrecht" (un-+right). To say you were wrong you could use: "Ich war im Unrecht." , "Ich hatte Unrecht." or "Ich lag falsch." Mutante 22:40, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh,hmm and it seems before spelling reform it was "Du hast recht". If you want to be sure ,see [1]. Mutante 22:48, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
