"woman" as opposed to "female"...???
I got this from another thread - and I HEAR it all the time on radio. A personal wee peeve of mine.
Pardon me for getting grammatical here - but isn't "woman" a noun and "female" an adjective?
The president is a woman. We have a female president.
The woman is driving a car. The driver of the car is female.
Any examples of what you have heard?
