Unit 2.1

Noun with Both Genders

Nouns

Nouns refer to a person, place, thing, event, substance or quality.

We can find nouns which are the same for masculine and feminine genders.

There is no fixed rule for the formation of nouns.

The most commonly used nouns for both masculine and feminine genders are: cousin, doctor, driver, friend, student, teacher, teenager

  • My favourite aunt is a doctor.
    My favourite uncle is a doctor.
  • My dad works at school. He is a teacher.
    My mom works at school. She is a teacher.
  • Adam likes cars. He is a good driver.
    Julia likes cars. She is a good driver.

We use nouns when we have to refer to people, places, things, events, substances or qualities.

There is no fixed rule about the nouns which are the same in masculine and feminine genders; we just have to study these words and remember that they remain the same in the two forms.

There are certain nouns which are the same for both masculine and feminine genders.

The most commonly used are: cousin, doctor, driver, friend, student, teacher, teenager

For example:
— “My mom works at school. She is a teacher.” = Teacher refers to mom and she, therefore, refers to a feminine noun.
— “My dad works at school. He is a teacher.” = Teacher refers to dad and he, therefore, refers to a masculine noun.

Let’s revise this content within the {Form} section. Take a look at the {Example} section that shows its use within a context.
