    Verb She had her dog neutered by the veterinarian. Abstract In Luxembourgish, feminine as well as neuter gender can be assigned to female persons. Dialectologia et Geolinguistica In a language like English, which does not assign grammatical gender to nouns, the pronoun used for referring to objects it is often used for animals also. Whereas some authors use the term "grammatical gender" as a synonym of "noun class", others use different definitions for each; many authors prefer "noun classes" when none of the inflections in a language relate to sex.

    Here a masculine–feminine–neuter system previously existed, but the distinction between masculine and feminine genders has been.In languages with only masculine and feminine genders, the dummy pronoun may be the masculine third person singular, as in the French for "it's raining": il pleut where il means "he", or "it" when referring to masculine nouns ; although some languages use the feminine, as in the equivalent Welsh sentence: mae hi'n bwrw glaw where the dummy pronoun is hiwhich means "she", or "it" when referring to feminine nouns.

    True, Spanish isn't like German, where in terms of gender nouns fall into three classifications (masculine, feminine, and neuter). Indeed, in.If the noun is explicitly marked, both trigger and target may feature similar alternations.

    In Luxembourgish, feminine as well as neuter gender can be assigned to female persons. Here, female first names are morphologically treated.Nouns that denote specifically male persons or animals are normally of masculine gender; those that denote specifically female persons or animals are normally of feminine gender; and nouns that denote something that does not have any sex, or do not specify the sex of their referent, have come to belong to one or other of the genders, in a way that may appear arbitrary.

    In "grammatical" gender, most words that end in -a-d and -z are marked with "feminine" articles, while all others use the "generic" or "masculine" articles.

    Many authors prefer "noun classes" when none of the inflections in a language relate to sex, such as when an animate —inanimate distinction is made.

    This may not look like a neuter use, because lo can also be used as a masculine pronoun.

    For example, in Portuguese and Spanishnouns that end in -o or a consonant are mostly masculine, whereas those that end in -a are mostly feminine, regardless of their meaning.

    In some languages, the gender of a noun is directly determined by its physical attributes sex, animacy, etc.

    In the case of languages which have masculine and feminine genders, the relation between biological sex and grammatical gender tends to be less exact in the case of animals than in the case of people.

    For example, the French pronouns quelqu'un "someone"personne "no-one" and quelque chose "something" are all treated as masculine—this is in spite of the fact that the last two correspond to feminine nouns personne meaning "person", and chose meaning "thing".

    As regards the pronouns used to refer to animals, these generally agree in gender with the nouns denoting those animals, rather than the animals' sex natural gender.

    The animate—inanimate opposition for the masculine gender applies in the singular, and the personal—impersonal opposition, which classes animals along with inanimate objects, applies in the plural.

    In languages with a neuter gender, a neuter pronoun is usually used, as in German es regnet "it rains, it's raining"where es is the neuter third person singular pronoun.

    Hence, if a neuter relative pronoun is used, the relative clause refers to "flowerbed", and if a masculine pronoun is used, the relative clause refers to "garden".

    Sometimes, however, there is no antecedent—the referent of the pronoun is deduced indirectly from the context: this is found with personal pronouns, as well as with indefinite and dummy pronouns.
