Common gender

grammatical gender

Common gender (Swedish: utrum) is the grammatical gender of those nouns in English that are not limited to either sex or gender, such as cousin, people, and spouse. In some languages, such as Latin, the words are of common gender when they aren't either masculine or feminine but not neuter.[1]
