What are all the attributes necessary to remember, when learning a new noun in German?
Here is my idea of it:
its grammatical gender
whether it is an adjectival noun or not
its plural form
ending in the genitive case
i) Is that correct?
ii) Are there even more attributes to learn?
iii) What are some rules how to deal with / recognize the ending in the attribute 4) ?
a) Attribute 1) is sometimes not necessary, especially if the noun ends with eg. -schaft, -ung, - keit etc, but in general it is necessary to learn
b) Attribute 4) I am not sure about. In my paper Czech-German dictionary there is written every noun in the form: die Scheibe (~, n); or der Sack ((e)s, ~mit Umlaut+e), so I am guessing that the elements in those brackets are: the genitive ending and the plural form, right?
