Masculine and Feminine words
Dia dhuit everybody,
I know that we should memorize the gender of each word we learn. However, are there some rules and some clues that can help us to define if a word is masculine or feminine ? For example, "mairtheoil" (beef) is feminine. Does the structure help to determine it's feminine ?
BTW, is there a percentage approximately accurate of masculine words over the feminine ones in Irish ?
Go raith maith agaith, Alexandre
