I have found several extensive, machine-parsable lists of German words, but none of them give the gender of the nouns.

Can someone point me to a comprehensive list of noun with their gender (or equivalently, with their articles)?

(I tried the file suggested here, but I found it very difficult to extract the information I wanted from that file.)

There's a "Vollformenlexikon" available for download here. It doesn't only cover nouns, but they are easily identifiable and extractable from the xml, which also includes gender information for nouns.

  • That's a beautifully done piece of work. Thanks for pointing it out.

I found a list of 1000 words with gender (as indicated by the der, die and das in the site "German word list-Greg's German nouns") under Google question for "German nouns list with gender"

  • Welcome. You could improve this a lot by adding the link!
