Question and answer
What class of words in Modern English retains grammatical gender?
Although some authors use the term "noun class" as a synonym or an extension of "grammatical gender", for others they are separate concepts. [ One can in fact say that grammatical gender is a type of noun class.There are a few traces of gender marking in Modern English: Some loanwords inflect according to gender, such as actor/actress, where the suffix -or denotes the masculine, and the suffix
-ress denotes the feminine. The third person singular pronouns (and their possessive forms) are gender specific: "he/his" (masculine gender, overall used for males), "she/her(s)" (feminine gender, for females), "it/its" (neuter gender, mainly for objects and abstractions), "one/one's" (common gender, for anyone or anything). ]
