Friends, we focus on the patterns you need to know in general and the information you need to memorize in the lessons we publish so that you can learn German. However, we need to include important grammatical issues that you must know while learning German. The subject we will cover in this course will be German Names (Substantive). In order for this subject to be understood much better, we can begin our lesson by emphasizing that it should be understood thoroughly in the German Articles we have published before.
To define the name briefly, it is called the words we give to beings. As in our own language, there are types such as singular, plural, simple, compound, abstract and concrete names in German. Again, as in our own language, there are also varieties such as the conjugated-e state of the noun. It is said that there are approximately 250.000 words in German, and all the initials of all names are written in capital, regardless of specific or generic names. And to put it briefly, they take the words (der, das, die), known as articles, per genus nouns.
It is possible to examine the names in the German language by dividing them into 3 genera. These;
Masculine Sex (Male Names)
Female Genus (Female Names)
Neutral Breed (Genderless Names) are separated as.
According to the grammatical rule used, this point is given to the masculine words with the "der" article, the female to the female words with the "die" article, and the neutral words with the "das" article.
German Masculine Gender (Male Names)
All nouns ending in the letters -en, -ig, -ich, -ast can be called masculine. In addition, the names of the months, days, directions, seasons, names of all male sex creatures, and names of mines and money are also male.
German Female Breed (Female Names)
Names ending in the letters - e, -ung, -keit,, -ion, - in, -ei, -heit can be called feminine. In addition, the names, numbers, flower, river, river, tree and fruit names of all female creatures are also female.
German Neutral Breed (Genderless Names)
The names common to both sexes and the names of city, country, offspring, metal and derived names are all considered as neutral breeds.
Note: Generalization has been made on the mentioned subject. We recommend that you take the German dictionary as a source to find out which genus of the words you are not sure about. In this way, you will learn the new names you will learn with the correct usage.
