Welcome to the fifth Polish 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 Polish 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 - Polish|
|my son is a student|
[masculine + noun] mój syn jest studentem
|her daughter is a student|
[feminine + noun] jej córka jest studentką
|he has a tall brother|
[adjective + masculine] ma wysokiego brata
|she has a tall sister|
[adjective + feminine] ona ma wysoką siostrę
|his brothers are young|
[plural masculine + adjective] jego bracia są młodzi
|his sisters are young|
[plural feminine + adjective] jego siostry są młode
The list below will probably provide more clarification. These are family members (males and females). I think it would be wise to memorize them as part of your important vocabulary list.
