Nouns are generally preceded by determiners. Some determiners are the definite and indefinite articles such as der Mantel and eine Brücke. Another category is the interrogative words such as welche Schule or wie viele Leute. The largest categories are the der words and the ein words.

Der words

The der words function like the definite articles in that they identify the gender and number of nouns. One of the der words is dieser (this). Let’s look at it in all the cases.

                                  masculine                  feminine                 neuter                     plural
nominative           dieser Freund         diese Lampe           dieses Haus             diese Tische
