When looking through the list of words for men and women you may have noticed that a number of words look the same for both genders but take the gender-specific article:

Examples:

Masculine

Feminine

der Verwandte die Verwandte
der Alte die Alte
der Erwachsene die Erwachsene
der Fremde die Fremde
der Tote die Tote
der Bekannte die Bekannte

 

… and exceptions: Nouns that seem to look the same in the masculine and feminine form BUT THEY DON’T!
