  Gender :
  Gender in Lotha is based on the natural distinction of sex and therefore it is applied only to the animate nouns, hence it is non-linguistic. Gender of animate nouns is marked morphologically except some kinship terms which are absolute forms.
Nouns in Lotha can broadly be divided into two groups i.e. Animate and Inanimate. Animate group can further be divided into Human and Non-human. These human and non-human groups have three-way opposition for gender i.e., Masculine, Feminine and Common. Gender denotes the group of nouns which are neither to sex. This grolup is mostly restricted to the non-human nouns.
Lotha gender system can be represented graphically as follows :
  m-                      n-        

  ®póy                  ®lóy              °N                °kyù
