  1. Daniel Fuchs Says:

    We have two demonstrative articles: dieser/diese/dieses (masculine/feminine/neutral) is proximal and jener/jene/jenes is distal, although the latter is outdated and rarely used these days. But it’s still part of the language, so German should be classified as having two-way demonstratives. Der/die/das, as given in the examples, are the definite articles and can replace either of the demonstratives in informal German.
