What is the feminine of bachelor?

In English there are no masculine or feminine forms. English uses gender specific nouns for a male or a female.

The gender specific noun for a male is a bachelor.

The noun 'spinster' is a gender specific noun for a female who is past a child bearing age but has never married.

The noun 'bachelor' is the noun used for an unmarried, adult male of any age. However, at the time the word 'spinster' was commonly used, no corresponding noun for a male was used because an unmarried man of any age is not past an age for (the expectation of) siring children.

Old timers will speak of a 'bachelor lady.' The word bachelorette is a more recent addition to popular culture, because the word spinster has such negative connotations.

What is the opposite gender of witch?

When addressing either male or female it is still Witch. The word Warlock translates to "oathbreaker". If you call a male Witch a warlock, he's going to get angry at you. The word Warlock was made popular by movies and media. (There is no such thing as a "warlock"). It sounds very mysterious and magical and makes for good movies. *shrug* As usual, Hollywoods poetic license I suppose.

Another answer

* WITCH is genderless- it applies to all who practise the craft. Also the term Warlock, if it is used, would refer to an alchemist. An old form of magic and science that was blended together and studied the natural laws of the planet and nature and ways to change one thing (lead) into another (gold). Now days warlock isn't really used anymore and so the word Witch is used for both genders and is universally excepted.
There is no gender for the term Witch. Both male and female the word Witch is used.

The words Warlock or Wizard have different meanings than the word Witch means.
