Albanian Feminine
 It is essential to know the Albanian feminine because it is used in conversation every day. Practicing Albanian terminology more often will make it easier to perfect it. The Feminine part of the Albanian grammatical structure must be understood first.

It refers to female qualities specifically related to females and ladies, or to things considered feminine. The complement of feminine is masculine.

Here are some grammar tips:

The feminine form of a word that ends with a consonant is formed by adding (e) to the masculine form.

A noun’s gender can be changed only if it represents a profession, nationality or circumstance.

Here are some examples:

English feminine      Albanian feminine

student (masc.) – studente (fem.)
phycisian   mjek (masc.) – mjeke (fem.)
turist turist (masc.) – turiste (fem.)
amerikan (masc.) – amerikane (fem.)
