Gender Discrepancies

Gender discrepancies come from existing morphological differences between different languages. For instance, English has less morphological information than Spanish. The English plural personal pronoun they can be translated into the Spanish pronouns ellos (masculine) or ellas (feminine); the singular personal pronoun it can be translated into él/éste (masculine) or ella/ésta (feminine), etc. In order to take into account such gender discrepancies in the translation of the pronoun into English or Spanish, a set of morphological (gender) rules was constructed.
