Frühling lässt sein blaues Band
Wieder flattern durch die Lüfte;
Süße, wohlbekannte Düfte
Streifen ahnungsvoll das Land.
Veilchen träumen schon,
Wollen balde kommen.
– Horch, von fern ein leiser Harfenton!
Frühling, ja du bist’s!
Dich hab ich vernommen!
Eduard Mörike

Endungen mit bestimmten Genus

they DO have a rule???

desire to learn german intensifies

see how much bigger the “die” one is? I always feel like I pretty much only use feminine nouns because of it. eep.

there are other rules for gender, too, not listed here, but these are based on endings.

Anonym sagte: Are words only capital in the beginning in German sentences or can some word be capital while others aren't?

germannn:

You have to capitalize:

  • names
  • all nouns (including proper nouns + nominalized verbs, adjectives, and numbers)
  • words in the beginning of a sentence
  • the formal you: “Sie” (NOT “sie” when it means “she” or “they”)
  • street names (e.g. Ligusterweg, Großer Markt, Alte Dorfstraße)
  • fixed terms (e.g. der Kalte Krieg = the Cold War)

Do NOT capitzalize “ich” (I) or adjectives of nationality.

There are a few more complicated cases, but those are the basics.

in german, we don’t say “let’s go” we say “jetzt geht jeder noch mal aufs klo und dann reiten wir los” and i think that’s rad
