"On dit d'un mauvais traducteur, qu'il fait sa traduction à coups de Dictionnaire"

The Project for American and French Research on the Treasury of the French Language (ARTFL)

Simultaneously query Jean Nicot's Thresor de la langue française (1606) and the Dictionnaire de L'Académie française 1st (1694), 5th (1798), and 6th (1835) editions


Dictionnaire de l'Académie française, 8e édition

A very good dictionary: visit it and click on Menu principal. Then go for either "Chercher dans le dictionnaire" or "Lancer une recherche"
You'll receive a session number which will allow you to search and also memorize the history of your queries. It's a real pity that the program imposes such bazar and does not allow direct simple queries of the dictionary.

Le Trésor de la Langue Française Informatisé
Slightly different script than the previous one, alas -when you visit it- the interface is even more appalling than the previous one. Here too, you'll receive a session number which will allow you to search and also memorize the history of your queries.

CNRS - Université de Caen: synonymes

Use cookies. Offers also a "Classement complet des synonymes, détail des sens macroscopiques (composantes connexes) et microscopiques (cliques)" of the term you will search.

Le Conjugueur (private php script by Brewalan Le Drû)
"Le dictionnaire interne comporte environ 8000 verbes différents ce qui est plus que le nombre de verbes utilisés chaque jour dans toutes les conversations"


Online DWB

Site very slow: overbloated with _javascript nonsense "hidden" behind the entrance at http://www.dwb.uni-trier.de/index.html.
Habt Geduld... it will eventually kick in.
