Tips to Remember:
1. Associate “der Sohn” with the English “son” by remembering both words start with an ‘S’.
2. Think of the phrase “The Sun and the Son” to connect “der Sohn” with a father-son relationship, since “Sohn” sounds somewhat like “sun” in English.
3. Use a mnemonic with a common English name, e.g., “Sam’s Only Happy Near” – take the first letter of each word to form “SOHN.”

Explanations:
– “Der Sohn” is a masculine noun in German, hence the article “der.”
– In German, nouns are always capitalized, which is why “Sohn” is written with an initial capital letter.

2. “Der Nachkomme” (which generally means descendant but can also be used for son)
3. “Der Stammhalter” (often used for a son who is expected to carry on the family name)
