I know that there is a list of verbs where you're not supposed to say "a/au/a la." Is arreter one of them? Since I am working with subway stops, I don't know many of their genders. Is there a general gender for metro stops? Or should I just assume they are masqueline, unless they feature a female's name or end with an e? Merci beaucoup!
