    Masculin: philosophe, conflit, pay(s?), action, exemple

    Feminin: histoire, conseption, region, organisation, economie, langue

    Source(s): Me, but even though I'm French, I'm generally not that good at masculin/feminin distinction... Double check - I tried!

    Féminin: histoire, conception (you've misspelled this word; it's actually written with a "c" not "s"), région (again, a little mistake: it's "région" and not "region"), organisation, économie (not "economie"), langue.

    Masculin: conflit, pays (the word "pay" doesn't exist in French; I believe you wanted to say "pays", which means "country"), exemple.

    Both: philosophe.

    This might sound annoying, but never forget the accents when writing in French or in any other language which uses them. It makes a big difference.
