If professor is the word for teacher, what is the word for professor?

January 12, 2013


In Brazil, both teacher and professor are called "professor".

In Portugal they use the title "professor" to say professor in the meaning that is understood in English. Maybe Brazil is different. I work at a university in Portugal (I'm not Portuguese) and we refer to Professors as Professor in Portuguese. Also for teacher they use "professor". I hope this helps.

That's an academic title that doesn't exist in Brazil (don't know about other Portuguese-speaking countries). So it would also be translated as "professor".

I said "...professors." Why is it wrong not to specify within the noun that they're female professors?

Generally speaking, in English job titles are not assigned a gender. It is correct to call the head of a committee or firm the"chairman". In recent years, we have developed gender neutral titles to replace job titles that seem to assume a male incumbent, we might use "chair" instead of "chairman", but the traditional forms are still accepted.
