Feminine Nouns 2 - gen Chris Parkinson
Nouns: Here is some more practice for learning which nouns are feminine,
and what to do about it!
1.Another set of common feminine nouns
tigen wallet; tesen cake, loaf;
kenter nail; vorgh fork; padel pan;vorn
oven; pel ball; lo spoon; oles
hearth; scübyllen brush (small).
items in a small drawing and remember which they are.
definite article ‘an’, some, but not
all of these will mutate the first letter like this:an
gegin, an genter; an badel, an bel; An digen, an desen,
i.e.those beginning K,P and T. But the following
adjectives will mutate after all of them.
So, try to get the following into your ears using broas and bian/vroas and vian (big and small): An
an gisten vian; an genter vroas; an badel
vian; an bel vroas; an oles vroas; an digen vian; an desen vroas; an vorn
vroas; an vorgh vian; an lo vian; an scübyllen vian.
The adjectives dû (SWF/M du) (black), glan(clean)
and coth (old) also mutate, to dhû, lan andgoth
feminine nouns, so try using them as well, as you practise.
Remember, you don’t need to write any of this down. You just need to hear it as
you say the words out loud. Much easier!
