Wat is het nummer van ?JOUW? telefoon?

hi,

I don't know how to ask this very simple Q :o

I know for the formal ''uw'' form: Wat is het nummer van uw telefoon?

But is the more informal Q: ''Wat is het nummer van jouw telefoon?''

Thanks!

Yeah, except that it would be much better to say "je telefoon" there. "Jouw" is only used when putting a lot of emphasis on the word

Cool, thanks alot =D>
this isn't very difficult for me to get, cos Slovene also has some forms where pronouns are ''the stressed way and the normal way'', but not exactly the same ones as Dutch, of course :lol:

Also, "wat is je telefoonnummer" is a lot more frequent, I think. ;)
