Gujarati is a language with grammatical gender. There are three genders: masculine, feminine, and neuter.

Nouns can often, but by no means always, be identified as to their gender according to their ending. These same gender-linked suffixes are used to make adjectives, verbs, and even adverbs agree with nouns in Gujarati sentences.
