Basic English Grammar -- Chapter 03 -- Gender -- Nouns ( Masculine, feminine, Neuter, Common)
The Noun-Gender tells us about the sex of the noun.
In Grammar-Nouns, there are FOUR GENDERS.
1. Masculine gender:
A noun is said to be in the Masculine gender if it refers to a male character or member of a species.
Man, lion, hero, boy, king, horse and actor are nouns of masculine gender.
• A boy is playing in the play-ground.
• Hero of the movie is not a native of this country.
In these sentences the words "boy" and "hero" are masculine-gender nouns.
2. Feminine gender:
A noun is said to be in the feminine gender if it refers to a female member of a species.
Woman, lioness, heroine, girl, mare, niece, empress, cow and actress are few of the feminine-gender nouns that we use.
• A girl is playing in the play-ground.
• Heroine of the movie is not a native of this country.

Child, student, friend, applicant, candidate, servant, member,
parliamentarian and leader are few of the common-gender nouns.
