"The man reads the newspaper."
Translation:Der Mann liest die Zeitung.
Make a list with three columns: masc, fem, neuter. Write every word in the appropriate column and try to find the plural form too. Der Mann (Männer), die Frau (Frauen), das Kind (Kinder) etc. Look also up the discussion on gender and plural.
Nope, wish it were that easy. Every noun has a gender and they are not intuitive. Best of luck.
No, because "er" means "he," whereas "Der Mann" means "the man." They have slightly different meanings.
You used the ich form "lese" instead of the er/sie/es form "liest". Der Mann liest die Zeitung. so "the man" is the same as er?
So, "Die" is used in the cases of feminine nouns such as "woman" and "girl", pronouns like "we" and "they", and plural neutral nouns such as "children". "Der" is used in the case of singular masculine nouns such as "boy" and "man". "Das" is used in the more uncommon case of singular neutral nouns like "child" or "book". Please correct me if I forgot anything or got anything wrong.
Help! I thought that 'Zeitung' is masc nouns because in the previous exercises we put 'Eine' before Zeitung which I understand that comes with masculine nouns, but now it's come with a 'Die' that comes with Feminine. What is going one? :(
Eine would be feminine. ein (or einen for accusative) is masculine. I hope I'm right on the masculine! Zeitung is feminine
