Why was this started?
One of Hindi grammar’s challenge is to figure out whether an inanimate noun is masculine or feminine. We all know the guidelines (words ending with “aa” are masculine, words ending with “ii” are feminine) We also know that this guidelines are not followed plenty of times to drive everyone nuts! It is imperative to learn the gender classification as the associated adjective or pronoun, follows the same classification.
This challenge gave birth to ‘Is it a HE or a SHE’. Hopefully, I will get a laugh while I try to paint a picture for you to easily remember the masculinity or feminity of these Hindi nouns. I would love to hear your anecdotes and your very own special ways to memorize. Thank you! If you enjoyed reading this, like us on facebook and leave a comment there.
