I've just found out that une professeur (link 1, link 2) is an acceptable usage. Are there any other femininized -eur words like this?

    Slightly different than the original question about feminine variants of masculine titles, but don't forget there are also feminine adjectives that end in -eur such a la grandeur, la hauteur, la fureur, la profondeur. Jan 12, 2021 at 19:29

    Hi Matthieu, welcome to FSE and thank you for this good link! In order to make your answer a bit more "independant", it would be nice if you could take some of the most relevant information from the link and put it directly here, so that if the link ever breaks, your answer does not. :)
