Der Rosenkavalier - Final Trio

German articles are used similarly to the English articles, a and the. However, they are declined differently according to the number, gender and case of their nouns.

The inflected forms depend on the number, the case and the gender of the corresponding noun. German articles - like adjectives and pronouns - have the same plural forms for all three genders.

This table gives endings for the definite article, equivalent to English the.
