Geschlecht (Genus) - Regarding the grammatical gender of German words.

Regarding the gender of German words, i.e. masculine, neuter and feminine.

Fragen betreffend das grammatikalische Geschlecht (Genus) von deutschen Wörtern.

German nouns and third-person pronouns have an inherent gender, which is determined by the rightmost part of a compound or derivate. That means, derivative suffixes also carry a gender. Attributes like adjectives and participles inflect by gender to comply with their substantive (“KNG-Kongruenz”). Gender doesn’t always agree with natural sex.
