Term 2 Week 3 – Arabic Level 4/5 Boys

Masculine and Feminine Nouns – المذكر و المؤنّثُ

Introduction
In Arabic language words are either masculine or feminine. A masculine word can be changed to a feminine by adding any of the following three symbols at the end of a masculine word:
• ة called Tā’ Marbūŧah,
• اء called Alif Mamdūdah or
• ىٰ called Alif Maqŝūrah.
However there are certain Feminine nouns and adjectives which do not have any of these three signs and are considered Feminine, for example: The earth الأَرْضُ and the sun الشَّمْسُ are feminine in Arabic language.
