Welcome to the fifth Albanian lesson about gender. This time we will view a list of people, feminine and masculine, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of expressions in Albanian to help you practice your daily phrases.
In general, gender is used to distinguish between male and female, sometimes referred to as masculine and feminine. For example: my son and daughter are students the noun [son] is masculine, while [daughter] is feminine. The following examples use gender in different ways and places to demonstrate their behavior.
|Grammar + Rules - Albanian|
|my son is a student|
[masculine + noun] djali im është student
|her daughter is a student|
[feminine + noun] vajza e saj është studente
|he has a tall brother|
[adjective + masculine] ai ka një vëlla të gjatë
|she has a tall sister|
[adjective + feminine] ajo ka një motër të gjatë
|his brothers are young|
[plural masculine + adjective] vëllezërit e tij janë të rinj
