If I point to a tarte (little cake), which is a feminine word, and say “It’s me who made this” (not the most elegant phrase, but bear with me), should I say “C'est moi qui l'ai fait” or “C'est moi qui l'ai faite”?
I’m trying to tease out whether the “past participle agreement with direct object when before the verb” rule applies even if the feminine object has not been *linguistically* referenced (only referenced, visually, or implicitly in some other way).
Freeform Writing Exercise B1
If you were talking about une tarte you would agree the PP 'fait' with the object tarte which is feminine -
or talking about a visit for instance -
Jim, fait is 'invariable' when it is followed by an infinitive -
Hope this helps!
