Welcome to the fifth Slovene 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 Slovene 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 - Slovene|
|my son is a student|
[masculine + noun] moj sin je študent
|her daughter is a student|
[feminine + noun] njena hči je študentka
|he has a tall brother|
[adjective + masculine] on ima visokega brata
|she has a tall sister|
[adjective + feminine] ona ima visoko sestro

[plural masculine + adjective] njegovi bratje so mladi
