German Nouns that fall in the miscellaneous category

Some words just can't find a good home, but that doesn't mean they aren't important! Improve your German by learning some of the most common miscellaneous nouns.
female “die” nouns are red
male “der” nouns are blue
neuter “das” nouns are green

Common words that can be used to describe many different things come in handy quite often. For example, what happens if you want someone to hand you something but you can't remember the name of the item? You could say perhaps: "Können Sie mir das Ding geben?" or "Can you give me that thing?". Language learning is about being creative with the words you have, so learn some common words in the miscellaneous section and use them to replace words that you forget!

Your knowledge of noun genders plays a gigantic role in your ability to correctly apply German grammar rules. We have color coded the nouns on our site so you can more easily learn the articles that go with each noun, both improving your vocabulary and giving you a huge advantage when it comes to accurately constructing German sentences.
