There are two genders in the Lebanese language when it comes to identifying words. Masculine and Feminine only. Each noun in the Lebanese language is categorized as either one of these two genders.

A general rule is that all singular nouns ending with an “a” are Feminine.  Some other nouns that have feminine properties and do not end with “a” are also feminine such as “”Imm” (Mother) or “Iḱit” (Sister).

Try to identify which words are Feminine and which are masculine:

Siyyara (Car)

Xaṡfur (Bird)

Maṫaar (Airport)

Ḋayxa (Village)
