Posts: 3

Gender (liṅga in Pāḷi)is a technical term in the grammar. It is very important and complicatedin the case of Pāḷi and Sanskrit language if we never read many texts, which appear in different ways. However, it seems to be easy to decide the gender in  English, Bengali, Burmese etc.language.

Most of you In English:

Masculine: Man,

Feminine: Woman, hen

Neuter: Table, Book

In Pāḷi:

Masculine: Manuso (Man), Go (Ox)

Feminine: Nadī (River), Ratti (Night)

Nueter: Cittaṃ (Mind), Phalaṃ (Fruit)

How about in Tanchangya language,what sort of rule should we follow?
