Nakh-Daghestanian languages are known for their relatively elaborate gender systems and the impact the systems have on the grammar of the languages, most notably on verbal agreement. This paper explores the gender system of Hinuq with its five genders, taking into account semantic and formal principles for gender assignment and the rules of verbal and nonverbal gender agreement. Moreover, the paper discusses the Hinuq gender system within the wider context of Nakh-Daghestanian gender systems and possible social and cultural influences on these systems.
