    Inflection Inflection, in linguistics, the change in the form of a word (in English, usually the addition of endings) to mark such distinctions as tense, person, number, gender, mood, voice, and case. English inflection indicates noun plural (cat, cats), noun case (girl, girl’s, girls’), third person singular. Several studies examine particular problems in specific languages, but often with implications for the IE phylum as a whole. Given the historical scope of the data (over a period of four millennia) long range grammatical changes such as the development of gender differences, strategies of definiteness, the prepositional phrase, or of the syntax.

Gender in Old English. Old English had a system of grammatical gender similar to that of modern German, with three genders: masculine, feminine, neuter. Determiners and attributive adjectives showed gender inflection in agreement with the noun they modified. Also the nouns themselves followed different declension patterns depending on their gender.

The Third Gender: Studies in the Origin and History of Germanic Grammatical. GRAMMATICAL AND NATURAL GENDER IN MIDDLE ENGLISH The scholars who have investigated the history of gender in Middle English have been unanimous in the conclusion that the loss of grammatical gender was the result of the loss of the gender-distinctive forms of the strong adjective declension, the definite article and demonstrative, and other.

In particular, the course will focus on two topics as case studies: the notion of a separate “women’s language” (or Weibersprache) and theories of the origin of grammatical gender. What political, theoretical, and aesthetic programs do claims about “gendered language” serve, and what anxieties do they reveal.

The special characteristics of the Germanic languages that distinguish them from other Indo-European languages result from numerous phonological and grammatical changes. Phonology Consonants. Proto-Indo-European had 12 stop consonants: *p, *t, *k, *k w; *b, *d, *g, *g w; *bh, *dh, *gh, and *g w h; and one sibilant, *s.
