ABSTRACT
The paper explains the term gender in linguistics and its reflection in English, Slovak, and Latin languages. The Slovak language expresses gender in substantives, adjectives, some pronouns, some numerals, and in the simple past tense of verbs in the 3rd person singular. The Latin language expresses gender in substantives, adjectives, pronouns, and some numerals, while the English language expresses gender ´only´ in substantives and some pronouns.
