French Word Lists?
« on: January 09, 2009, 09:56:19 AM »
Does anyone know of (or have) a complete French word list that I can use?

I've cobbled together a basic list from various sources, but am still struggling with fills. My current list has only about 13,000 words and I understand from searching the interwebs that a typical French dictionary actually has about 35,000 words.


Help would be much appreciated...

I'm not sure this would be useful for an English language puzzle, Usually, an editor will accept only commonly known words in a foreign language.

I'm not sure what in my post makes you assume that this is for an English language puzzle, but thanks for the reply.

Still seeking French word lists...

I found a few by searching for unassociated, slightly obscure French words.

Hope this helps ...

Wow! That's one very effective (and clever) search strategy! And after all that time I spent on Google before I posted the question here...

Merci beaucoup !

Really? I have CCPro and the "French.txt" file installed by CC on my machine only contains 896 words... I just downloaded again, and 896 only...

Well, I converted the French word list I have into a text file, and the count is right.  So I'm not sure where you got your list from.  And I don't remember exactly how I got this list, it may have been a set I had to pay extra for.

Just tried to send you a "personal message" via the site (I'm sure you understand that I'd rather not post my email address to the forum), but I think you're blocking messages in your profile... lloks like the default blocked user list is "*" (as in everyone). I just updated mine to allow PMs...

Clemdia:

Not sure yet how to change my profile.  When I figure it out, I'll update it to allow personal messages.

If you don't want to wait until then, my own e-mail address is:

    tagross <at> earthlink <dot> net

A bientot,

---Todd
