I'd be very grateful to anybody who could help me with the following question:
My question: Why is it "faulen" here? See text below:
Die Stiefmutter weckt Hänsel und Gretel: Ihr faulen Kinder! Steht auf. Wir wollen in den Wald gehen. Und Holz sammeln.
My (mis)understanding: the adjective 'faul' should be declined here according to the strong inflection table since there is no article in the sentence. The noun "Kinder" is nominative plural. So that means the ending should be just '-e': faule. But the text gives "faulen". It doesn't sound wrong – I just can't explain why it is "faulen". The 'ihr' here is also not a possessive determiner, but rather nominative personal pronoun (2nd person plural informal). What am I missing?
Would anyone be able to explain to me why it is 'faulen'? Thank you!
