Grammatical genres are simply classes of subtantives that follow certain patterns of bending. They are not necessarily related to the natural sex (male or female), although they often coincide. It is important to know the sex of a word to refuse the name and change other words that are grammatically related to the nomad within a sentence. English words are very often used in familiar Hindi. Although English words do not have grammatical sex associated, Hindi locophones attribute To English words a grammatical sex so that words in Hindi sentences work grammatically. This association is a bit arbitrary, but often words that sound like Hindi-female nouns (i.e. words that have a last vowel) are treated as feminine names. Hindi names have two grammatical genders: men and women. There is no neutered sex in Hindi. Some names can be used for either men or women. Thus, the grammatical sex of these words depends on the context. Some male names that end up with Type II names are Type II names, but they are mostly relational terms: the female type I nouns can also end in इया, even if ई is the most common ending: thus, the English word “movie” is considered feminine: (अच्छी film – “good film”. Male names have two models of bending: male type I (“marked”) and type II masculinine (“unmarked”).

Type I or marked female names are female names that typically end in ई in the singular number and इयाँ in the plural number: most names that end in numbers are male nouns, but some may be female nouns. For example, the word भाषा (“language”) is a feminine name, but ends in . Not all names that end up in ई are women; for example, आदमी (“man”) and “water” both end in ई, but are men. Similarly, females are names of two species that correspond to both types of male names. The male names of type I or marked end with the vowel in the singular and ए in the plural: the female names of type II or unmarked are female names that form their plural in एँ suffix. Type II or unmarked male names are masculine names that have the same form of singularity and plural form. Their number is determined by context. Male Type II contains all male names that are not present in . Note the spellings: the plural form ends in इयाँ. The suffix — usually abstains a word, z.B.

converts an adjective into a Nov, or a concrete noun in an abstract noun, etc. Usually, the words that end up — are women, like. B सफलता, क्षमता, राष्ट्रीयता, योग्यता, मित्रता, एकता.
