Gender of nouns in Syriac

There are two genders of nouns in Syriac,masculine and feminine.Most feminine  nouns take the -ta ending.

There is no distinction between definite and indefinite nouns in Syriac.They both end in -a.In earlier forms of Aramaic there was a distinction between the two.The -a ending noted the definite article.


Examples.

nuna-fish  -   ܢܘܢܐ

feminine
malkta-queen ܡܠܟܬܐ
