Hi all

On behalf of a colleague, let me ask you: does anyone have any idea or, better even, data on the question what the most frequent (in the sense of type frequency) grammatical gender in German is? That is, are there estimates out there how many different nouns are masculine, feminine, and neuter?

Thx for any info you might be able to share, STG -- Stefan Th. Gries ----------------------------------------------- University of California, Santa Barbara http://www.linguistics.ucsb.edu/faculty/stgries -----------------------------------------------
