Genders of Nouns: Neuter


are words of, relating to, or constituting the gender that ordinarily includes most words or grammatical forms referring to things classed as neither masculine nor feminine.

The neuter gender indicate words that specify objects or general terminologies. In contrast with masculine and feminine, all words that name objects are all neuter in gender. In addition, not only objects are neuter but also words that points to either male or female, like words for the infant of an animal.

Take a look at this chart to see what I mean:

Let us see now compare all three genders. Take a look at this chart:
*Take note that neuter gender can either be male or female, or can neither be male nor female. If a term or word refers to a general kind, for example a horse, it is considered as a neuter, but when you point out to male horse you should refer to it as a stallion. Above this, all words without gender specification are all neuter.

Genders of Nouns: Feminine

are those having the qualities or appearance considered to be typical of women; connected with women.

The Feminine gender indicate words that specify the female gender. In contrast with masculine, all words that names the female individual are all feminine in gender.

*Take note that feminine are used only for female gender species. Compare masculine with feminine for a more contrasting view. There are many words that separate the two genders but there is also a notion that discriminating words are to be avoided. Words like landlord and landlady, should be addressed as landowner or innkeeper.

is a noun which names anything which you can not feel through your five physical senses.

This does not mean that abstract nouns are merely 'ghosts' but rather 'concepts' and 'ideas.'
Words like justice, peace, unity, anger, hate build up the category of abstract nouns.
Now, there are still a few arguments on whether 'love' should be placed. Should love be felt by the five senses making it a concrete noun or should it only be a feeling or an idea just like anger and hate making it an abstract noun? You decide, give me your side and tell me a very good reason why.

Now, comparing abstract and concrete nouns, let see this chart below.

Their are so much more that can be added to this list, why not try to add a few of your own?

*Take note that abstract nouns will most likely touch your inner feelings. You may see it this way: concrete nouns are things felt by your body (which is at the outside) and abstract nouns are things felt by your heart (which…
