Wiktionary:Requested entries (French)

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

Have an entry request? Add it to the list. - But please:

  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • Add glosses or brief definitions.
  • Add the part of speech, preferably using a standardized template.
  • Please indicate the gender(s) .
  • If you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them — it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

Non-letter[edit]

A[edit]

B[edit]

  • billon (bullion) — The link is blue because the page already has an entry for an English word.
  • bitch, direct loan from the English to mean a derogatory term for a woman. Not sure about attestability, hence putting it here. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:11, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
  • bonne vivante -- lively?
See bon vivant. I'm not sure that use of feminine is perfectly correct. --Elkaar 12:20, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
not idiomatic. --Diligent 07:42, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
the feminine is not common, but it's used. And it should be included. Lmaltier 06:01, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
Dialectal (patois). Means belly. French is difficult enough, so forget it ;-) --Elkaar 17:48, 30 March 2009 (UTC
No, we need it. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:32, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
never heard. --Diligent 07:42, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

C[edit]

  • cache-mirienne
    French Wiktionary has cachemirien as a noun, it could also be an adjective and the feminine would be cachemirienne. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:24, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
  • carne (corner; projecting angle; quill of a pen)
  • carnetière
  • CES (needs French) Acronym of Collège d'Enseignement Secondaire (secondary education school). --Elkaar 09:20, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
  • centre aéré: after school program or recreational program for children--达伟 22:11, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
  • centrique (centric) ≟ central
  • communer -- to transit in public transportations ?? --
  • contexture — Has English; needs French.
  • cordialiser
  • cordonner
  • coucouilles
  • coupe: ice-cream dessert? e.g. coupe noire = vanilla with dark choc sauce
    Well it literally refers to what it's being served in. In the same way if I eat a cone it can implicitly mean an icecream cone is the context is clear enough. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:58, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
  • corme. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:45, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
  • crémade: a kind of paste or sauce, e.g. crémade d'olive can be bought in Provence (creamy sauce with mushrooms and vegetables, rather like the sauce used in a blanquet de veau SemperBlotto 16:52, 9 January 2012 (UTC))
  • cri de cœur, I removed it from cri de coeur but since I don't know the word I don't want to risk creating it in error. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:49, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

that looks suspiciously like a variant of néflier, the medlar, but even if it is it might be a species considered similar rather than Mespilus germanica itself. Chuck Entz 03:49, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
There's a French carol from the 15th century titled "Noël nouvelet" Chuck Entz 03:40, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
