Datapoint Haitian Creole/Female and male animals

In lyon, lyòn 'lion, lioness' the female form could be considered as a sex-denoting suffix (value 4, as in French). This is found in dictionaries, but very rarely used by monolinguals. It is only bilingual French speakers who use the inflected form. It is therefore considered a lexicalized, unproductive form.

Value 2: In the Atlas linguistique d’Haïti (Fattier 1998, volume 6, map 1734, point 4), I only have a single case of postposition with mal, which is for the generic word 'male animal': bèt mal.
