Gender Assignment in French: The Hierarchy of Rules and the Chronology of Acquisition.
Surridge, Marie E.
IRAL, v31 n2 p77-95 May 1993
Recent knowledge about the system of gender assignment in French is examined to suggest theoretical reasons why English speakers are so rarely successful in mastering the French gender assignment system for inanimate nouns. Morphological, phonetic, and semantic rules shed light on the system. (14 references) (Author/LB)
