    Anyone know French?

    The difference between genders, when do you add an "e" at the end for feminine, when you're speaking to a woman, or when a woman is speaking, or when you're speaking about a woman, or all?

    Generally when you are talking about a woman.

    It's been fifteen years since my last French class, but if I remember correctly, you add the e (or ette, or whatever) when the subject is female. Ami/amie, for example. If it's an object belonging to the woman, it retains its own gender.


    Yeah, I missed it, too.

    If I am not mistaken, chairs are feminine.

    is not going to outgross Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Certainly not with an August opening. You can count on that.

    French gender is tricky while there are some words that have an e added to make it feminine it's not always the case. You just have to learn the gender of the word as you go. Some words may not have an e at the end but will still require a "la" to signify the gender.

    When talking about a group of people, even if the majority are women, if there are men present the group is then described as masculine.
