Page 77 - All terms seeming to constitute an appellation, and all proper names of men and women, are of the gender of the sex to which they respectively belong, as are likewise all names of animals, when the male is distinguished from the female by a different denomination...
Page 78 - All the names of the days, months, and seasons of the year are of the masculine gender, except automne, which is of both genders; when, however, the diminutive mi (half) is prefixed to the name of a month, the compound word then takes the feminine gender, as la mi-Mai, la miAoût, la mi-Septembre, &c., except also la micarême, and saint days, as la Saint-John, la Tous-, saint, &c.
