Objective Students will be able to form questions in German using the inverted word order, and identify definite articles.
Definite Article (Nominative) In German there are three variations of the definite article “the” in the nominative singular, der, die and das. The nominative is used to identify the subject of the sentence. Ex. Der Junge ist siebzehn. Die Frau wohnt nicht sehr weit von hier. Das Telefon ist da drüben.
Definite Article (Nominiative) Note: all nouns in German (including names and places) are capitalized. der Sohn das Buch die Schweiz
Definite Article (Nominative) It is extremely important to learn the articles that accompany the individual nouns. We refer to these as masculine (der), feminine (die) and neuter (das). Be aware, however, that the nouns associated with either of the three articles are not necessarily “masculine” or “feminine” or “neuter” by context – the article for a man’s tie (die Krawatte) is feminine, while a woman’s scarf (der Schal) is masculine
