How are you supposed to distinguish between 'that' and 'this'. I haven't figured out the rules yet.

"I like dieser dog"- why not?

der Hund in Nom. becomes den Hund in Akk.

similarly dieser Hund in Nom. becomes diesen Hund in Akk.

"mögen" requires an accusative object

when do you use diesen versus diese?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trio-linguo

Diesen is masculine accusative. Diese is feminine/plural nominative and feminine/plural accusative.
