l'écriture (f)

The noun 'écriture' (handwriting) is feminine. But apparently the correct translation of "We cannot read his handwriting" is 'Nous ne pouvons pas lire son écriture'. I was using an exercise book and I thought the answer in the back might be a mistake, but Google Translate also comes up with the same translation. La bonne phrase est 'Nous ne pouvons pas lire sa écriture', n'est-ce pas?

Bonjour Thomas !


"Son écriture" is indeed correct here, and that's due to the fact that écriture starts with a vowel.


Have a look at our related lesson:

I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !

Thank you! I also found the answer. I'd completely forgotten about that rule
