► SWEDISH NOUNS INFO
Nouns have two grammatical genders: “utrum” (common) and “neutrum” (neuter), which determine their definite forms as well as the form of any adjectives used to describe them. Noun gender is largely arbitrary and must be memorized; however, around three quarters of all Swedish nouns are common gender. Living beings are often common nouns, like in “en katt” (cat), “en häst” (horse), “en fluga” (fly), etc.
