The Spanish Genders

This week we would like to turn to the Spanish genders.

Unlike English or German, Spanish and French (along with Italian, Portuguese and Romanian) are different evolutions of Latin, called Romance languages or Neo-Latin languages. Therefore, all of them share some similarities either in vocabulary, grammar or pronunciation.

 

Spanish noun genders work differently for every word,  and although there are some basic patterns helping in studying them (generally an o at the end of the noun stands for masculine;  an a for feminine), exceptions to these patterns prove the existence of the rules.
