'Windows' is plural while 'das Fenster' (the window) is singular. 'The windows and the table' would be: 'Die Fenster und der Tisch'
Can someone please tell me if I have noticed something good: You know the vowels a-e-i-o-u. Everyone does. Now, to figure out when DIE, DER, or DAS is used with whatever word, I noticed that the word is preceded by the form with the previous letter in the vowel order. An example: dEr T-I-sch DER has 'E' and the following letter in Tisch is I. Another example: Das Fenster. dAs fEnster. So if I just follow the sequence of vowels (a-e-i-o-u), will this work?:)
Following the a-e-i-o-u sequence:
- der Garten (garden)
- der Teller (plate)
- der Himmel (sky)
- der Boden (ground)
- der Mund (mouth)
- das Wasser (water)
- das Telefon (telephone)
- das Bild (picture)
- das Holz (wood)
- das Flugzeug (plane
Any vowel may follow der or das; sorry, there is no pattern or trick here.
