    1. Examples:

      Normal singular:

      ISA 1:3 יָדַ֥ע שֹׁור֙ קֹנֵ֔הוּ וַחֲמֹ֖ור אֵב֣וּס בְּעָלָ֑יו He knows ox his owner and the donkey the manger of his master, - Smooth: The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master's feeding trough,

      Proper nouns (names) are always singular, even if the referent is plural:

      OBA 1:1 חֲזֹ֖ון עֹֽבַדְיָ֑ה The vision of Obadiah. 1SA 29:1 וְיִשְׂרָאֵ֣ל חֹנִ֔ים בַּעַ֖יִן‮a‬ אֲשֶׁ֥ר בְּיִזְרְעֶֽאל׃ and Israel camped at the spring which is in Jezreel. - Smooth: the Israelites camped by the spring that is in Jezreel.


      GEN 38:13 לָגֹ֥ז צֹאנֹֽו׃ to sheer his sheep.


      The word most commonly translated with "God" in English is אֱלֹהִים which looks like a plural, but every time God is the subject of a sentence, the verb is singular, and so are the adjectives that are connected with it.

      GEN 1:1 בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית‮‬ בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים In the beginning he created, God - Smooth: In the beginning God created.

    2. Exceptions--Some nouns such as אם (mother) and ארץ (earth) have no feminine ending. function submitDeleteForm() { var message = prompt("delete_confirm_message\n\ndelete_commit_summary", "Delete ''"); if (message != null) { $("#delete-message").val(message); $("#delete-file-form").submit() } }

      This is discussed under "gender_feminine", not sure it needs to be here too.

    3. Masculine singular nouns have no special endings. Feminine singular nouns usually end in either ה or ת.

      This should be under the section "form".
