comment Gender of most recent loanwords from English?
@StéphaneGimenez “Mon facebook” is still uncommon, but gaining popularity, to mean “my Facebook profile page”. I think it's always masculine.

comment Right translation with regard to modus and tempus of “should have been”
Réponse correcte à la question principale, mais il reste quelques erreurs : orthographe de , contresens sur ignorer (c'est un faux ami, alors que rejeté ne convient pas si mal dans ce contexte), traduction trop mot-à-mot de dataset.

comment Gender of loanwords from English ending in -ing
@Fatalize A string in the computer sense is “une chaîne de caractères”, or “une chaîne” for short. “Une string” is uncommon franglais, with the feminine article coming from the proper term “chaîne” that the speaker has in mind.

comment What to use for subjunctive imperfect while speaking?
@Aerovistae I don't think so. It's just that this sentence calls for a subjunctive imperfect, but that is never used in speech (and not all that much in writing), so we look for an alternative. Because the subjunctive present doesn't work here, recasting the sentence to not require the subjunctive is the preferred solution. Besides, in speech, it's common to avoid subordinate clauses, because they require more careful planning than coordinate clauses.

@StéphaneGimenez I think it's because there are two people involved, so we need to specify whose hand it is.
