Gender in dictionary hints
It would be useful to have the gender of words in the dictionary hints, this would make easier ti remember genders.
hello. you said that 6 years ago ( i don't know if you're working there or something but i hope you do). Could you make this happen? i would be so helpful
You are right and not the first persons to comment on this. Being very pragmatic I advise people in this situation to take to the old fashioned pen and paper. Make a list of nouns in three columns. Masc., fem., neuter. If you can find it: add the plural because any rule you will find in dictionaries and grammars are okay but lacking. There are so many exemptions to the rules, that I always forced my students to learn the plural to each word by rote.
Yes and no, or as Germans would say "jein". There are so many exeptions to the rule, that it is more practical to learn the plural with each word instead of using the rule.
Particularly since any decent German/other language dictionary will provide the gender, as well as its plural form.
The gender is important for German, French, Spanish, Russian. If you ever consider adding Arabic, be sure to include the plural form of any noun as the plural needs to be memorized (e.g., "el kitaab" = the book; "el kutub" = "the books").
