Hi there, I’m Raminta and I’m Jack and welcome back to Lithuanian Out Loud.
One fascinating location in Vilnius, Lithuania is the Green Bridge or Žaliasis tiltas not far from Pilies gatvė in the old town or senamiestis. There are four old Soviet statues on the bridge, two on the north end, two on the south end. Each statue has a unique theme, peace, youth, agriculture and industry. It’s a great place for a photo.
pradėkime, let’s get started
Today we do unusual plural nouns. Remember masculine nouns have to be matched to masculine numbers and feminine nouns have to be matched to feminine numbers.
sūnus is the Lithuanian word for son and it’s a masculine noun
žmogus is the Lithuanian word for person and it’s a masculine noun
The word for uncle is unusual – dėdė. This word looks feminine because it has a feminine ending but it’s masculine.
stotis is the word for station, as in bus station or train station. This noun is unusual because it ends in the letter –s which makes it look masculine but it’s feminine.
moteris is the Lithuanian word for woman, it‘s unusual because it ends in the letter –s and it‘s feminine
duktė is the word for daughter
