Bonjour !

Could you help me with the following, please?

In encyclopedia-like books in French which are for French native speakers and whose point is not the things they list but rather the context in which they list them, what article is used, if any?

E.g., you have a book on the fauna of Bretagne, and the tiny pictures of animals are spread on the pages with their name next to them:

-do you use an article at all?
-if yes, which one (the definite or the indefinite)?
-and, again if you do so, do you list the gender of the word after it in parentheses in case the word starts with l’ , or do you leave that info out?

Thanks in advance! :smil1_41:

Hello Kalemya !

In those types of books, undefinited articles are usually used (ex : un chat) and the gender is not mentionned because it's usually mentinned yet in the complete definition.
I hope I understood what you meant (and that you understood what I have written !) !
