Why it is not "Diese"
(der) Mann = masculine noun (in nominative and singular), the demonstrative article needs to agree with case, number and gender
The endings follow the same pattern as for der/die/das.
What about "Dies"?
Nope. You'd use that in conjunction with "This is a man" as in "Dies ist ein Mann"
Im getting a little confused. Why couldn't you use Das mann?
why is "Dies Mann ist Lukas" wrong?
I also would like to know this.
Why not das mann( this man)
Although das is neuter,but we have used it like das kinder sind schön (these children are cute)
Es tut mir leid aber es ist DER Mann, DIE Frau und DAS Mädchen
...und Dieser Mann (nominative)
Can anyone please explain why would we use "dieser" as "this" instead of "der"
I think "der" just means "the" as opposed to "this," so it changes the meaning very slightly
Because der means "the" and dieser means "this"
