Can you help me understand and be able to know which gender elided nouns are in. Ex: Le homme = L’homme Like for L'alcool what gender is it.
If a word like l'alcool or l'auberge is written without any context you can't easily tell what gender it is. But usually words are parts of a sentence and often the adjectives or pronouns etc. that belong to that word tell you what its gender is. l'auberge était fermée - une auberge l'alcool est cher - masculin Some words have suffixes or other characteristics that indicate/determine their gender
What are some of the challenges and ethical issues in the study of sociology?
Sociology faces the challenge of working with human beings and their social groupings because people have rights that limit what we can do with them while we are studying them. Sociological subjects can give us important information but their information can be distorted. Sociologists must decide whether their own views will influence their research and theory development, either believing that knowledge is neutral or that value neutrality is either naïve or a rationalization for the fact that one is working for the elite because most sociological research is funded by and disproportionately available to powerful elites.
What is the difference between their and there?
There indicates a place as in, "I live here not there." It is the opposite of here. Their is the possessive of they, as in "They live there but it isn't their house." Here you want to indicate that the house belongs to them.
