You do not need to know the meaning of the French words in this exercise. All you have to do is to look at the endings. Compare them with your table, and thus discover whether they are masculine or feminine. If the singular already ends in an s, or something equal to an s, there is no change made at all. Adjectives form their plurals just like nouns. The following table gives some very important plurals : note that the plurals are both masculine and feminine.
These words can be used only before nouns. This rule holds even if there is a verb between the noun and its adjective ; e. I am- — je suis. Remember that you make an adjective feminine by adding an e, if there is not an e at the end already. This applies to e mute only : the feminine of aine is ainee elder. Les rues sont larges. La grande ville est interes- sante. La maison est petite. Nous sommes jeunes.

They will carry their brother into the house. The tourists will visit the big castle. To say le enfant would be difficult, and would not sound well. Accordingly the e is omitted altogether before a vowel, and an apostrophe is put in its place. The word now reads and sounds V enfant.
The same thing happens with la before a vowel. Eau water is feminine, yet we do not write la eau but I'eau.

The plural les, however, does not get cut short : we write les enfants. When these come along with the article they do not sound well in a Frenchman's ear. To the boy would naturally be a le gargon, and of the boy, de le gargon. But the rule about easy and pleasant sounds comes in again, and the words a le and de le are shortened into au and du respectively — au gargon, to the boy, du gargon, of the boy.
The plural a les gargons, de les gargons is equally unpleasant to French ears, so we have again a contraction aux gargons and des gargons. Us sont they are sounds ilsson ; Us ont they have sounds ilzon. Thus annee above, should be feminine because it ends in ee. It is feminine, so no mark is made.
Honneur on the other hand should be feminine because it ends in eur ; but since the word is an exception and is masculine the letter m. By continually referring to the list of feminine terminations you will rapidly acquire the power of readily separating masculines from feminines at sight.
