Welcome to the fifth Swedish 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 Swedish 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 - Swedish|
|my son is a student|
[masculine + noun] min son är en student
|her daughter is a student|
[feminine + noun] hennes dotter är en student
|he has a tall brother|
[adjective + masculine] han har en lång bror
