Persian Gender

As we mentioned before, there is no Persian gender which is good news (compared to other languages).

While in English it is known that feminine refers to female qualities attributed specifically to women and girls or things considered feminine. The complement to feminine is masculine. In Persian, nouns are not masculine, feminine, they might be all considered "neutral".

Grammar Tips:
There are no genders in Persian, no feminine and no masculine. This applies to adjectives as well as nouns.


Here are some examples:
