A few days ago we had our first look at Russian nouns, and we pointed out that the ending of the adjective "favorite" changed depending on the gender of the noun it was describing.
Today we expand on this concept and take a look at the 3 types of nouns - masculine, feminine and neuter. The general rule is:
Masculine nouns end in a consonant;
Feminine nouns end in -a or -ya; and
Neuter nouns end in -o, or sometimes -e.
