Grammatical Genders
Gramatické Rody

In Czech, nouns are classified into three genders: masculine, feminine, and neuter. This concept might be unfamiliar to you as an English speaker, since English does not use grammatical gender in the same way.

Masculine

Typically involves nouns that refer to male people or animals.

Masculine nouns can be further divided into animate (referring to living things) and inanimate. This affects their declension (the way they change form in different grammatical cases).

Feminine

Generally includes nouns that refer to female people or animals.

Feminine nouns often end in -a or -e.

Neuter

Used for nouns that are neither masculine nor feminine.

Neuter nouns often end in -o or -e.
