The Article Chart

A German teacher once told me just memorize this chart, everything else is vocabulary:

<pre> NOM ACC DAT GEN MASC deR deN deM deS FEM diE diE deR deR NEUT daS daS deM deS PLU diE diE deN deR </pre>

Thank you Teach! I just blasted through the Blue Wall of Determiners. Little owl is smiling!

...ooh dang When I edited this postI lost the cool HTML chart...I'll fix.

and if you like colors there is this blog as well (it's in French but it should be comprehensible, if not wait for Duolingo in French :) ), it gives the declinations for the articles and adjectives: - or -

Nice Franck! Though daunting. Makes me grateful for the English charts: "The" "a/some" ...done!

Great chart. One of the tricks I use it to remember this chart is, RESE (reesy), NESE (neesy), MRMN (Mur-men), SRSR (sir-sir) to remember the endings based on Nominativ, Akkusativ, Dativ, and Genetiv, respectively.
