French Language Blog: Language and Culture of the French Speaking World. Image courtesy of MEIF bassinrennes This post has no political agenda, but Hillary’s announcement got me thinking. You may have learned that certain job titles are always masculine in French, regardless of whether a woman holds the position. The example I always think of is le professeur (professor/teacher). Women certainly have a history in education instruction, so why is there no feminine equivalent of this word?

It’s true, if you use the word enough, you will remember the gender. Of course, most rules have to have that ONE exception. 8,050 feminine words total/ 95% follow rules ______________________________________________________ I would like to add though, that once you use a word enough and begin to “master” the French language per-say… words will just “sound right” as either masculine or feminine.
