"The woman is drinking with the teacher."
Translation:Die Frau trinkt mit dem Lehrer.
How come "the teacher" has been der Lehrer but in this sentence, it changes to dem? And is dem masculine, feminine, or neutral?
'dem' is still masculine, but dative case. The article changes according to the object's grammatical case.
Thanks but why not den Lehrer I get confused den or dem. I missed something?
Syntax. That would be: Mit dem Lehrer trinkt die Frau. Either Subject, Verb, Object or Object, Verb, Subject.
It seems like "dem" (the dative case) is used in prepositions. Does this seem true to anyone else?
