I'm missing something, perhaps is the understanding of demonstrative pronouns. In (from youtube) That is Peter. or

Das ist Peter.

Das is being used as a demonstrative pronoun, right? But the case, is it neutral? Shouldn't it match with Peter? Then would be

Der ist Peter.

And (to confuse me a bit more) GERMAN DEMONSTRATIVE PRONOUNS “JENER” seems to translate that also. Perhaps I should say

Jener ist Peter.

or not?

  • There it says If the word "das" means "this", there are no different words for m/f/n. Should I assume the same when "das" means "that"?

  • What about these/those can I just use das for them also?
