Table 1: 

The mutual information (MI) between the grammatical genders of inanimate nouns and a) the adjectives used to describe those nouns (top row), b) the verbs that take those nouns as direct objects, as indirect objects, and as subjects (rows 2–4, respectively), and c) the cases and numbers of those nouns (rows 5 and 6, respectively) for six different gendered languages. Statistical significance (i.e., a p-value less than 0.05) is indicated using bold. MI values are not comparable across pairs of random variables.
