Masculine and Feminine Words
Is there way to tell whether a word in Hindi is masculine or feminine?
According to the notes there are some patterns - most nouns ending आ are masculine, most ending ई are feminine.
But like most languages with gender, it's something to learn along with the word. Remembering an adjective or phrase with the word can help. e.g. when learning cat is बिल्ली remember: बिल्ली खाती है and the verb ending helps remind you that 'cat' is feminine.
