Gender: gender

Gender is a lexical feature of nouns and an inflectional feature of other parts of speech (adjectives, determiners) that mark agreement with nouns.

Com: common gender

Swedish does not distinguish masculine/feminine most of the time but does distinguish neuter vs. non-neuter (neutrum/utrum). The non-neuter is called common gender.

Examples

Neut: neuter gender

Nouns and other parts of speech that are neither masculine nor feminine (grammatically).

Examples

Masc: masculine gender

Some adjectives, when referring specifically to a male person, take a masculine form in Swedish.
