not sure we have the gender thing.. it's pretty difficult to look at my own language this way!

we use either "de" or "het":

het boek - the book
de auto - the car

but it's
de boeken - the books
de auto's - the cars

but that's all we do with it, no weird grammatical rules i think.

edited to add: if you know norwegian, you should be able to understand dutch if you read it out loud (and vice versa). for some weird reason lots of words sound the same!
zoek waar je wil, maar het zit in jezelf

oh yeah
