The difference is how they can be used in a sentence.

"One Frenchman lives in my home." is correct.

"The French" refers to all of them.
Use "the French" when you talk about the people in France as a whole.
The French are extremely proud of their cultural heritage.
The French and the German were once permanent enemies.

Use "Frenchmen" when you talk about persons from France individually.
Yesterday I met two Frenchmen who didn't speak other than French.
Most Frenchmen are smart dressers and gourmets.

Hi guys,

I haven't heard the term 'Frenchman' for years. It sounds rather quaint.

In these gender-conscious times, I'd say that the term sounds like it is intended to exclude the women of France.

If i want to say a person who is French, how can i say? French or Frenchman or Frenchwoman?

Does "Frenches" this word exist?

Thank
You can say "a French man" or " a French woman", depending on their gender.

And no, "Frenches" doesn't exist.

I'm also curious about the existence of the word "frenches" as I can say that "Italians " exists!

Am I wrong? Everywhere u can find this funny sentence: Italians do it better!

It's , of course, just a joke but I think this sentence well expresses what I mean!
Hi,

The commonest expressions are probably 'a French person' and 'French people'.

Best wishes, Clive
Thank you^^
