If I fill up a form with my nationality –
Example one: nationalité: autricien
Example two: nationalité: autricienne
I am a male Austrian, but I fill up with the feminine word 'nationalité' that agrees with the feminine adjective 'autricienne' but I don't know which example is correct.
Please tell me which example is appropriate for a male Austrian nationality. Thank you.
Vous êtes autrichien, mais de nationalité autrichienne.
Hope this helps!
"Note that the word for the nationality changes whether the person is masculine (français) or feminine (française)."

Does this not already answer your query?
It's an interesting question. The conclusion from the thread below seems to be that it should agree with the feminine word nationalité, so autrichienne. (Note autrichienne).
Many thanks to Cécile, Jim, Alan to help me. But, French is a crazy language that I have to write my nationality in the feminine form. However, I highly appreciate your support. Merci beaucoup.
