Missing French IPA

I'm learning French so I occasionally come across a word without IPA and it's such a pain. I think it is important to have IPA on each word entry. It allows anyone to know both aspects of the word, meaning and pronunciation. An online multilingual dictionary with pronunciation guides is a powerful tool for anyone learning a new language. I hope that leaving a little sentence like "Missing French IPA" is going to be useful, or at least not rude or negative. In the best case, someone with knowledge of the French language could search for entries with comments in the discussion saying "Missing French IPA" and could add the pronunciation. Perhaps this could end up working a bit like some open source projects where there are sections for low hanging fruit. Simple tasks like adding pronunciation to each word could be grouped as a low hanging fruit and be made more accessible. ( 06:06, 20 March 2011 (UTC))
