Denotation of Female Sex in Spanish Occupational Nouns: The DRAE Revisited.
DeMello, George
Hispania, v73 n2 p392-400 May 1990
Comparison of the 1970 and 1984 editions of a Spanish dictionary regarding the accommodation of female counterparts of traditionally male occupations found such adjustments as use of the feminine article "la" and the suffixes "-a" and "-nta." Other nouns proved to be particularly resistant to such accommodation. (CB)
