The Genders part 1 - Τα Γένη

Lesson 8 - Part 1 - Greek Grammar

  This is going to be a little difficult. In the Greek language we separate nouns and adjectives into three genders (γένη). These genders are Masculine, Feminine, and Neuter. This is the reason that we have three types of articles for each set, as you saw, in the previous lesson. Now I'll try to guide you on how to know the correct gender of a noun or an adjective.
Attention!!!
Words that may seem to you to be one gender may be another! 
Example:
"Καρέκλα" which means "chair", is Feminine and not neuter. So this particular word is: " η καρέκλα "


   Please follow the rules below. They should help you identify most of the nouns and adjectives. Click on the word or syllable to hear it. Here we go:
