Masculine and Feminine in translations[edit]

I have just added the translation to Portuguese, and I added it both in masculine and feminine. Could somebody answer me if I should have done like that, or, as this switch from masculine to feminine in this word is "regular", should I have written just the masculine version?

If it should be different, please, feel free to change it.

I don't see anything at Wiktionary:About Portuguese, so I don't think there are any special concerns for that language. Therefore, yes, including both masculine and feminine seems correct (preferred.) Since I don't speak Portuguese, (and there is no Portuguese section of favorito yet) I'd have no direct way of knowing the feminine form exists. --Connel MacKenzie 19:29, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
Shouldn't I have received an e-mail telling me you edited this page? It's on my watchlist...

Alternative?[edit]

I would think that favorite, without the u would be alternative, as it is more commonly spelt with the u. Favorite is an American only spelling.

I don't think the "Alternative" here means less usual. It just means "another way of spelling it". If you take a look at the favourite entry, you'll see that favorite is also referred there as Alternative.
