I know the masculine form is more dominant than the feminine form. How come the correct answer in this quiz is ‘zombie’ not ‘zombi’?
Either spelling is ‘correct’ but the noun remains masculine according to Larousse, Robert and wordreference.
Of course, as this is not a native French word, and has not been recognised by the Académie as an official French word, this classification is based on general usage as noted by lexicographers.
This has been discussed before in reference to one of the dictations, I think, but I can’t find the link.
There is no firm rule that says nouns ending on -e are always feminine.
un zombie -- a zombie
Maarten is correct here! Could you give a bit more details (i.e which quiz/exercise and which sentence) please? It would be very helpful to see if there's a typo etc ;-)
Merci et bonne journée
