As we mentioned before, there is no Turkish 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 Turkish, nouns are not masculine, feminine, they might be all considered "neutral".
Turkish doesn’t have gender but there are some exceptions especially the words which are taken from other languages. In these words, to form a feminine word from the masculine, you simply add (-e) to the end of the word.
Müdür (Headmaster-masculin) Müdüre ( Headmaster-feminine)
Katip (Clerk-masculin) Katibe (Clerk- feminine)
Here are some examples:
|English Gender||Turkish Gender|
|he is happy||(O) mutlu|
|she is happy||(O) mutlu|
|he is American||(O) Amerikalı|
|she is American||(O) Amerikalı|
|aunt||teyze, hala, yenge|
As you can see from the example above, there is no structure of the Feminine in Turkish.
