Sounds kinky.

Hello everybody!

I should give you a lesson. My language Slovak has unimaginably more words of gender differents than English. Imagine that your wife has your surname BUT with suffix "-ova". You may know it from Russia - for example tennis player Anna Kurnikova. His father's surname is Kurnik. If you say Mr. and Mrs. Jones, we say Jones and Jonesova.

EVERY word in Slovak has male and female form. Nouns, adjectives, even verbs...

I know one artist, she says that she doesn't want to be "woman" she wants to be a "man" (BUT in meaning person) and in Slovak the word man (person) is in male gender, so she speaks about herself in male gender. She has the surname like a man (guy). It's a bit absurd and comic but I understand her... him  

I call myself "webmaster" but general editor (with female suffix). I understand the word webmaster like terminus technicus...

Peace out

That's one thing that English has that many other languages don't have: words without a gender.  He, she and it.  We have it, and other languages don't.

I didn't mean that to sound silly, but that is too funny to erase.

Thanks Rogerka for that little linguistic tutorial..never had a feel for languages..maybe that part of the brain has not yet kicked in. Always experimenting with words will I be right in describing MR and Mrs Scott M. Stolz as S.M Stolz and Stolzova ? By the way..you're invited to their Caribbean themed Wedding......reception Ocho Rios...Jamaica....all expenses paid. Doan worry 'bout a thing....compliments of Caribbean Choice.

Yes, you say Mrs Stolzova

Btw. we have "it" too, we use it for words like baby, child... but a car or sun is "it" in Slovak too - I just talked about theme "he/she"
