Gage is an alternative spelling for gauge.
A gage is a measuring instrument that is used to measure the amount or the position of something. Gages are found in cars, airplanes, and industrial plants, among other places.
Gage can be a verb that means to estimate quantities or time.
Example: What do you gage the depth of the river to be?
Gage can also be a noun that is used to measure things, such as the distance between railroad rails, the thickness of wire, and the size of a shotgun’s barrel.
In many languages, such as Spanish, French, and Italian, there is a grammatical category for gender: masculine, feminine, or neuter.
The only times that gender is indicated in English is when certain nouns refer to a male or female animal or person.
Example: lion (male), lioness (female); waiter (male), waitress (female);
actor (male), actress (female)
When nouns take an ’s to indicate possession, this is called a genitive marker.
Don’t confuse the genitive marker with the ’s that is added to contracted verbs.
Example: Horace’s [Horace is] going to the store.
