I am working on an app where in order to process some data, I need to be able to identify the gender for some selected words. My data is in French.

The feature I am looking for should be able to tell me that "les garçons" is male plural, "chienne" is singular female.

What is the easiest word to do so? If you have a link to a library do not hesitate.


You could try to apply a French POS tagger, e.g. as suggested here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44468300/how-to-pos-tag-a-french-sentence

Note that a POS tagger usually works better from full sentences than isolated words.
