Both A Handbook of Proto-Germanic Etymology and Etymological Dictionary of Proto-Germanic list this noun as a masculine gender noun. Should this entry be redone as *mazgaz?Nayrb Rellimer (talk) 16:29, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

@CodeCat. I was wondering the same thing. It also is more in keeping with the PIE. —JohnC5 21:40, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
But what genders do the descendants attest? Modern Dutch and German both have a neuter noun. This doesn't mean anything necessarily, as this is a substance noun and those could be made neuter by analogy. But there's quite a lot of o-stem nouns that differ in gender between North and West Germanic. Enough, in fact, that it might be useful to make a category for them. —CodeCat 21:43, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
