It is

does

Feminine and plural

Does are several female deer, so it qualifies.

Third-person singular

The verb "does" is pronounced differently and is the third person singular form of do.

Alternative answer (in a similar vein to that given by SteveV)

Sows

One of the options,
Feminine and plural.

A sow is a female pig

The other one is
Third-person singular.

To sow means to plant a seed by scattering it on or in the earth

Making two sounds.

The first way rhymes with "cows", the second rhymes with "goes".

  • $\begingroup$ Another good option! I didn't realise there was more than one possibility matching these clues ... although SteveV's answer is a more common word. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 3, 2021 at 22:22

Are you

ELSE

Containing four letters, Making two sounds.

It contains four letters and makes the sounds El and S.

One of the options, Feminine and plural.

ELLES in french which is feminine and plural sounds like EL.

The other one is Third-person singular.

SE in french meaning itself and so third-person singular sounds like S.

  • $\begingroup$ No, but good try. The "two sounds" part is a bit of a stretch, I think. No knowledge of non-English languages is needed here. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 3, 2021 at 19:25
