Welcome to the fifth Turkish 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 Turkish 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 - Turkish|
|my son is a student|
[masculine + noun] oğlum bir öğrenci
|her daughter is a student|
[feminine + noun] kızı bir öğrenci
|he has a tall brother|
[adjective + masculine] Onun uzun boylu bir erkek kardeşi var

[adjective + feminine] Onun uzun boylu bir kız kardeşi var
|his brothers are young|
[plural masculine + adjective] Erkek kardeşleri genç
