Bonjour Marian,

You're right -- Professeur is what is most commonly used for both masculine and feminine subjects. Nowadays, we do see people writing it "Professeure" for feminine subjects, however this form is still a bit new (if I'm not wrong, it only appeared in the 2010's) and isn't widespread just yet.

As you mentioned and from what I know, the Académie Française is still against the use of this term, so I would recommend using "Professeur" in all formal written texts. You can, however, use Professeure in less formal contexts if you'd like, as quite a few dictionaries have this word referenced now. 😄


Bonne journée,

Marion

I'm reading below the written form of Professeur and its masculine and feminine. I understand the French Academy considers this to be a neologism ( According to Lawless French) and the Professeur is the conventionally accepted connotation for women and men.

Hello, are these words masculine or feminine (should I use le or la)? How do you say house husband, male nurse, and female engineer? Are the rest of the words the same no matter the gender of the person?


Thanks,

Mandy

Salut Paul,


Merci beaucoup for your comment. That can indeed be stressful, we understand that. Currently, our site does not have a built-in French keyboard yet but I will forward your thoughts to the correspondent team who make decisions about how to design the structure and the lessons on FrenchPod101.com. For the time being, you could consider using online French keyboards such as the one offered by Google Translate, or installing a French keyboard to your computer and learn how to write characters such as è, â, ù, etc.


Good luck with your French studies and if you have any more questions or suggestions to us, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Levente
