what is l' gender
i know l' means the, but what gender does it have?
'L'' is the shortened form of 'Le' or 'La' when the noun that follows it starts with a vowel or 'h'. The word for water, l'eau separated is l(a) eau. And the word for a man, l'homme, separated is l(e) homme. You cannot tell the gender of the word through the 'L'' in these cases.
