Chuhe means both rats and mice, right? It counted me wrong for using rats.
Hindi doesn't have the concept of neutral. The gender (or लिंग) of an object is pretty hard to remember. German also has a sort of similar system, only they have 3 genders. However, Hindi has only male and female. In a lot of cases, the male objects end with an (aa) sound and the female with an (ii) sound. But that's not a hard and fast rule. One example is pakshi, which is male. So a dog is always male, unless you're talking about a specific dog. And a cat is always female, unless you have a special one in mind.
- BaRaa = singular (1) male
BaRe = plural male
BaRee = singular AND plural female
Yes, cuhé is plural. The singular is cuha. It can mean both mice and rats, but is used more often to mean mice.
