You may find some explanations of difficult occupation names on the template talk page.

To prevent double entries, confusion between British or American spelling and all kinds of “gender trouble”, we supply alternative versions of parameter #1 for those entries which have notable (!) spelling or gender variants in the English language. Therefore, you can equally supply “actor” or “actress”, “monk” or “nun”, “draftsman” or “draughtsman” or “draftsperson” or “draughtsperson” for parameter #1. These variants are listed in italics below. Anyway, the output will honour the gender information you specify using parameter #2.

See {{Occupation/list}} for more examples
