A Quoi Sert le Genre Grammatical en Francais Moderne? (What Purpose Gender in Modern French?)
Parris, David L.
Francais dans le Monde, 111, 24-30, Feb-Mar 75
The usage of gender, traditionally attributed to an early animist perception of the world and surviving in most Indoeuropean Languages, has lost its rationale. Its primary advantages are in distinguishing between homophones and between third person pronouns, but the impossibility of system modification guarantees its survival. (Text is in French.)
