Monster canines

The monster revealed sharp white canines. I had to guess, wrong, since I had no idea nor could I find it anywhere online whether canines is masc or fem. What’s a good source for checking word gender when it’s not obvious? The lesson doesn’t address this of course. Thanks.

There is, e.g., Collins dictionary: https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english-french

Increasingly, though, I am using DeepL: www.deepl.com.

 

Just enter your word you'd like to translate and click on it. It will give you gender and related information below.
