I'm a little confused about German grammar, the demonstratives to be specific (this, that, these, those). Does the demonstrative pronoun have to match the subject being described?

Would This woman be Diese Frau?

It's actually quite straightforward:

  • this = dieser/diese/dieses
  • that = jener/jene/jenes
  • these = diese
  • those = jene

So you are correct, "this woman" is "diese Frau".
