Bon apptit! - I hope this answer is clear enough but I was trying to finish quickly so if there is any confusion just ask me and I'll try to reword the Phrases. I wanted to show the genders too in words that have genders.

The order of how I show the three genders of words in Icelandic is: Masculine/Feminine/Neuter

The masculine version of the words are the root words. Obviously, you use the feminine gender of words for describing women and the masculine gender for describing men (example: fallegur maur, falleg kona [beautyful man, beautyful woman]) but for moste other words this isn't that obvious (Example: fallegur hundur, falleg bk, fallegt barn, falleg setning [beautyful dog, beautyful book, beautyful baby, beautyful sentence]). So you have to work on memorizing the gender of the words until you get enough confidence to be able to know the gender of a word that you have never seen before just by looking at it. I'll give more explanations in a seperate topic.
