As in English, nomen inflect for number. As far as spelling is concerned, the plural is usually formed from the singular by adding the letter -s (see house > houses `houses`). Names that end on -au, -eu and -or often take the extension -x (see game > `games`). However, the endings -s and -x are mute outside the contexts of connection, so that the plural form of a noun usually has the same pronunciation as the singular. The nouns that end in the singular in -s, -x or -z remain unchanged in the plural, both in pronunciation and in spelling (see cross > cross `kreuzes`, both pronounced [k`wa]). French is a moderately curved language. The nouns and most pronouns are bent for number (singular or plural, although in most nouns the plural is pronounced in the same way as the singular, even if it is written differently); adjectives, for the number and sex (male or female) of their name; Personal pronouns and some other pronouns, for person, number, gender and case; and verbs, for excitement, appearance, mood, and the person and number of their subjects. Case is mainly marked by the order of words and prepositions, while some verb features are marked by auxiliary verbs. Each French name has a grammatical sex, either male or female. The grammatical sex of one of the names that refers to a person generally corresponds to the natural sex of the type (i.e.dem gender or gender of the speaker). For such names, there will very often be a name of each sex, the choice of name being determined by the natural sex of the person described; For example, a male singer is a singer, while a singer is either a singer (a pop singer) or a cantata (an opera singer). A plural noun that refers to males and females is a male.
In some cases, the two nouns are identical in form, the difference being indicated only in the neighbouring words (due to the gender agreement; see below); a Catholic is Catholic, while a Catholic is Catholic. Nevertheless, some of these names retain their grammatical sex, regardless of natural sex; No one `Nobody` is always a woman, while (at least in French `standard`) Professor `teacher` is always male. In Canadian French, a teacher is the standard female form that is increasingly common in European French. The verbs in finite moods (indicative, imperative, subjunctive and conditional) are also combined to correspond personally (first, second or third) and number (singular or plural). As in English, the subject must be included (except in the prevailing atmosphere); In other words, unlike other Romance languages, French is neither a zero-spoken language nor a pro-drop language. The masculine singular, the basic form of an adjective, appears in dictionaries. The female singular is normally formed by adding -e to the basic form. This is silent, which makes many male and female forms homophonic (see civil > civil `civil`, pronounced /sivil/).
But the end makes “dumb” notes pronounced, with male and female couples becoming distinct in pronunciation when the male form ends with a mute consonant, as is the case with many adjectives (see heavy [read] > heavy [lud] `heavy`). In some circumstances, other minor changes occur in the formation of female forms, such as the placement of an accent, the doubling of one consonant or its replacement by another, changes that often reflect the pronunciation of such extremities (see good [b] > good “good”; happy [`] > hour [`] happy .). Irregular female shapes are beautiful > beautiful `beautiful`, white > white `white`, and a limited number of others. When the basic form of an adjective ends in -e, it remains unchanged in the feminine (see Rich > rich “rich”). The adverbs themselves are usually immutable.
