French for warbler. Can anyone confirm/deny? Ƿidsiþ 09:49, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

The French Wiktionary has it, and w:fr:Parisome says yes as well, albeit as a redirect to the Latin name. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:31, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
google books:"parisome" has several hits, but they're all either:
  • not visible
  • not French (including one scanno)
  • using it, capitalized, as a genus name
and some fall into more than one of these categories.

Avibase : the world bird data base has 12 answers in French for "parisome". --Szyx 12:18, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
I think I should apologize now. Yes it seems very rare in French, most of the hits are from the French Wikipedia and its mirror sites. Some sort of long-running joke? I'm baffled to be honest. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:23, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
No long-running joke here. Confirmed also by Dictionnaire Universel d'Histoire Naturelle de 1847 (1847 universal dictionary of natural history). See the "parinées" entry. — Xavier, 12:48, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

RFV failed, entry deleted. I have seen no evidence that parisome is a French noun meaning “warbler”. However, I've now created an entry for Parisome, which is or has been a French proper noun denoting the genus Parisoma. I'm not sure what its gender is, and I'm not sure if it needs a context label; y'all are welcome to have at it. —RuakhTALK 16:41, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
