WHAT IS GENDER – HINDI GRAMMAR. Hindi Grammar Gender Rules

Hello friends welcome to our blog this is the main purpose. To bring as much information as possible to you in Hindi medium, today let’s start the gender under Hindi Grammar / Grammar which is called Gender in English.

what is gender

Meaning of Gender – The form of a noun by which its male or female caste is sensed, it is called gender or gender.

Below are some examples of gender –
  • Tanya is playing.
  • Tejaswini is singing a song.
  • Arun went to see the fair.
  • The girl is beautiful.
  • Teachers are calling us.
  • Nana is watching something on Zee TV.
In all the examples I have given above, in one way or the other, there is a sense of female or male caste, like Tanya, Tejaswini, girl is getting the sense of female caste. Similarly, Arun, the teacher and maternal grandfather give a sense of the male caste.

gender differences

On this basis two distinctions of gender are clear –
  1. masculine
  2. feminine
Let us understand them as follows –
1. Definition of masculine: The words which denote the male caste are called masculine. Or it can also be defined in this way. Words that convey the meaning of male caste are called masculine; For example – Bevda, madman, lion, horse etc.
2. Definition of Feminine : The words which give the sense of female caste are called feminine. Or define feminine in another way, then the words that convey the meaning of the feminine are called feminine; For example – Bevdi, Baoli, lioness, mare etc.

gender identity

Some noun words are such that they are always in masculine or feminine, it means to say which caste it belongs to, it means which gender it is, we get it by looking at it or by other means. So such words are divided into two types or distinctions, which are as follows.
  1. regular masculine
  2. continual feminine
1. Definition of Nitya masculine: Those words which are always used in masculine, regardless of caste, it is pronounced as masculine, they are called Nitya masculine ; Like- Crocodile, Owl, Mosquito, Tortoise, Rabbit, Parrot etc.
2. Definition of Nitya Feminine: Those words which are always used in feminine gender, they are called Nitya Feminine; For example – fish, butterfly, cuckoo, mynah, fly, squirrel, lizard etc.
So in this way these are Nitya masculine and Nitya feminine words, to change gender we have to add male or female words in front of them; For example- female rabbit, male lizard etc.

There are some words that are neither feminine nor masculine; Doctor, Engineer, Lawyer, Minister, President, Prime Minister etc.

So to find out the gender difference or gender of such words one has to understand the sentences; some examples
  1. Pratibha Patil was the President of our country.
  2. Atal Bihari was the Prime Minister of our country.
