anaamil is plural of anmal at

reference: Lane's Lexicon Volume 8 Page 3038 Column 3.

Its gender if written can only be exceptional gender i.e. gender by usage in language. I don't think it is required to write exceptional gender with annamil here.

1 correction, there is ta at the end of singular and ta can be used to make (1) real feminine e.g. muslim, muslim at i.e. to describe a real feminine whose male pair also exists, (2) formal feminine i.e. with a ta at the end or aa. (alif folowed by hamza) or aa (alif on top of ya or only ya) at the end or (3) increase intensity.

e.g. khaleef at has ta at the end but it is masculine and the ta at the end just increases the intensity.
