Just like the earth revolves around the sun, everything in the Russian language revolves around the notion of gender in nouns. Is a word masculine, feminine, or neutral? Let’s start our journey to the world of Russian gender words…

<em>neofight78</em>, Russian has no articles but it has pronouns, when I went to school we detected the gender in our native language (and we always do it so) replacing the noun by its <em>personal</em> and <em>possessive</em> pronouns:

соль - она, моя - feminine;

конь - он, мой - masculine;

знамя - оно, моё - neuter;

брюки - они, мои - plural, no gender.

Tamás Dornbach,well done, except for one word. Pay attention that nouns ending in "мя" are neuter.

So, вреМЯ will be neuter.
