Have you gone through Masculine and Feminine in Spanish?
If you are struggling with Masculine and feminine in Spanish, this nice video tutorial will help you.
As in other languages, in Spanish nouns have a gender.
So objects are considered masculine or feminine and that determines the endings of the nouns.
Therefore, depending on the endings you can understand if a noun is feminine or masculine.
Let’s see how it works!
O endings are going to belong to masculine words.
El perro –> The dog
Whereas A endings are going to be feminine words.
La casa –> The house
However there are other endings that are related to the masculine gender.
Let’s see some of them.
El viaje –> The trip
El calor –> The heat
El cajón –> The drawer
El problema –> The problem
El cromosoma –> The chromosome
On the other hand there are other endings related to feminine.
Let’s see them.
La canción –> The song
La pasión –> The passion
La verdad –> The truth
La vejez –> The old age
We have to keep in mind that E endings are going to be masculine or feminine.
El peine –> The brush
La nube –> the cloud
The same happens also with consonant endings.
La miel –> The honey
El árbol –> The tree
Besides these rules we have other words that don’t follow them.
For example we have O ending words that are not masculine but feminine.
La mano –> The hand
The same happens with A ending words: some of them are not feminine, they are masculine.
El mapa –> The map
