What's the difference between Vorsitzender and Vorsitzenden?
Der Vorsitzender = Nominativ maskulin
Den Vorsitzenden = Akkusativ maskulin
Schwer zu erklären, aber schau mal hier: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_declension
"der Vorsitzender" ist wrong. It's "der Vorsitzende".
Uff! Mea culpa! Der Vorsitzende it's correctly!!
Oh, that makes sense. I didn't realize that word changed with case, and I posted my question before thinking about it, I guess. Thanks for the reply.
@jgesner: if you follow brasil's link, the appropriate entry is 'attributive adjectives' (not 'nouns') since 'der Vorsitzende' is a nominalized adjective which - although being nouns - get inflected like adjectives.
