Could you please tell me the following:
if it is a group of all women talking, do you still say:
"nous sommes venus" or is it
"nous sommes venues" ???
Thank you so very much!

  • FRENCH -

    it's "nous sommes venus" because its the verb "être" (be)

  • FRENCH -

    no sorry its "nous sommes venues", it is a "e" because the verb is "être" so there is an accord.

  • FRENCH -

    Thanks! I know if it is a mixed group, then the masculine form is used, but I figured if it is all women who are speaking, then it should be the feminine form.

  • FRENCH -

    Absolutely correct, E.G.! :)

    Sra (aka Mme)

    all men = masculine plural
    1,000 men and 1 woman = masculine plural
    all women = feminine plural

  • FRENCH -

    Thank you very much, Mme.
