Noun class system of Proto-Benue-Congo. In linguistics, a noun class is a particular category of nouns.A noun may belong to a given class because of the characteristic features of its referent, such as gender, animacy, shape, but such designations are often clearly authors use the term "grammatical gender" as a synonym of "noun class", but others consider these noun class system of Proto-Benue-Congo.

Swahili noun classes []. Swahili nouns are, like those in other Bantu languages, noted for a system of semantically based classing, which affects not only nouns but also their modifiers (adjectives, numbers, demonstratives) and verbs. Just as gender accord is required in many Indo-European languages (e.g., French, Spanish, German, Russian), the modifiers and verbs associated with a given noun.

3 In the Niger-Congo literature one sometimes finds an opposition between the terms noun class and gender (see, e.g., De Wolf (, p. 42)).
