Masculine and Feminine
What is the difference between masculine and feminine and how d o we know if a word is masculine or feminine?
Good question. I struggled over this for a while. And the final answer really is
There is no answer. However like some people have said there is an answer for SOME words but many are just random. However if you are able to learn weather something's Masculine or Feminine or Neuter. Then it tells you a lot about how to use the word in different sentences. I have a book that helps me remember the
The that goes along with the word. But it's good to learn them because they tell you about how else to use the word. Eg
Der and Das- ein. But Die-eine. when in sentences in which the word is Dative: Der and Das-dem. And Die-Der. It's a long road to find the variations of all the different words but I found that google translate is pretty good in the way of telling me what
the goes with my sentence.
