Masculine and Feminine Definite Articles
Is there a method in determining which definite article (masculine or feminine) to use before nouns or is it just memorization? Thanks
I think you meant to say adjectives. The feminine version of a French adjective will usually end in e. However, many adjectives end in e and use the same form for masculine and feminine - e.g. amiable, confortable.
I think the only reliable way is to learn the gender for each noun. But I guess that people who already speak spanish, portuguese, or italian, wont struggle at all, because in most of the cases genders will match. If you use «le» instead of «la» and vice versa, people will still able to understand you, and guess what ? Few words are tricky even for french speakers who will misgender them !
