Veirte Stunde (Fourth Lesson) - Veidt articles. Uploaded May 15, 1998.

German nouns are masculine, feminine, and neuter, and they each take a different 'D' word.

Der Vater means 'the' father.
Die Mutter means 'the' mother.
Das Geb�ude means 'the' building.

Most teachers will tell you that when you're memorizing nouns, always memorize them as a two- word group:
Der Kunstr�uber -the art thief
Die nacht - the night.
Das R�tsel- the mystery

However, although the 'D' word Die is used for feminine nouns, it is also used for masculine and feminine nouns - when they are plural.

Die Liebschaften des Hektor Dalmore means The Love Affairs of Hector Dalmore and Die Bruder Schellenberg, means The Brothers Schellenberg.

Veidt German is a light-hearted look at the language, and we won't discuss all the technicalities of declension, and things like accusative, nominative, and dative cases. But this is a reason for people to pay attention during in their school days to their English grammar classes - knowing all this terminology makes it a lot easier to learn any foreign language.
