    Гость is masculine in dictionary why???

    • LMastery
      LMastery 5 months ago

      Rohit Chabria, nouns. with -ость suffix are feminine. In the word гость -ость is not a suffix, it’s the part of the root of the word. It could be the explanation, but we have кость which is feminine. So you just have to memorise it. Not everything can be explained. Also there is another word гостья which is feminine. ГОСТЬ - ГОСТЬЯ

    собака and такса are feminine, but what if the dog is male? If I were to translate "My dog's name is Max. He is a dachshund" would it be "Имя моей собаки - Макс. Он такса." ? Someone told me that it should be Она такса, even though the dog is male, but that seems wrong to me.
