What is baby girl in French?
Is there a reason for the negative form being different? And if so, why doesn't it apply with the verb etre? Is it to do with tangible and intangible objects, as in, if I drink beer I am drinking THIS beer in my glass whereas if I don't drink beer, this refers to beer in general?

"Je vais vous envoyer l'adrésse de mon site web" and "Je vous enverrai l'adrésse de mon site web" both should be correct I think, but the program marks the former as wrong.
My husband, who speaks French fluently, observed me agonizing over this en, dans, à, feminine / masculine countries, states, regions and cities and he laughed. He asked why I’m wasting my time memorizing trivia that won’t make a difference when it comes to having a conversation with a French person. He says nobody except a French teacher would give a rat’s ass if I made this mistake. It doesn’t prevent understanding or communicating.
The fact that I can’t advance to other lessons that will further my ability to communicate, until I get this glitchy thing memorized, is very frustrating. It makes me afraid to even try to speak, for fear of making this kind of mistake.
