All words in German have “genders”. All of the 3 (der, die, das) are “the” in English, however:

  • Der is for masculine words
  • Die is for feminine words
  • Das is for neuter words.

I’ve heard there are different articles for different cases.

Prepare yourself my friend, for when the German speaker comes.

Thanks mate, i also read this in google.
But idk am i overthinking about this or nah but there’s words that i don’t think it’s a feminine words or i don’t think it’s a masculine words…
But Hey, Thank you so much for answering, i really appreciate that :slight_smile:
(I also need to fix my english btw. i didn’t speak english this much for a long time lol)

der, die, das are three ways of saying ‘the’ in German . ALL nouns have a gender: either masculine (der), feminine (die), or neuter (das). You need to always know the gender of every noun you learn — otherwise, you won’t be able to use it correctly in a sentence.

It’s kinda like “ten”, “ta” and “to” in my language. As a native speaker, there’s no way to determine word gender than to have it come naturally to you - you try all 3 of them before a word and pick the one that doesn’t seem unnatural.

For non-natives, it’s a pain.

Happy to be Estonian, there’s no specific words for any gender, we just call each other “tema”


Yes but you have 1337 cases

Oh yes, besides that we all call each other “tema” there’s a ton of weird exceptions that are pain in the arse to learn even for native speakers.

It’s so for all ugric languages I think.

Those aren’t exceptions tho, those are cases, there are rules for those

Yes, these aren’t, I was talking in general.
