As we are entering the very last days of August, and it’s nearly Back to School time, the publication of our eBooks, “The Dico” and “Le Dico”, are on their way.

The very first dictionary of French apocopes

We plan to have the eBooks available in early September, so it can be a good companion for French learners on their academic journey.

The eBooks will be offered on Amazon (USA, Canada, France, and World), iBook Store, and much more platforms. As we tested our product on computers and tablets, it also works perfectly fine on mobile devices! Hopefully it will be a great tool and a fun way to learn French apocopes.

The first dictionary of French apocopes

“The Dico”, an original dictionary for french truncated words: apocopes

The eBook will cover hundreds of frequently used words in French. This new publication will be a referential of those words, not yet integrated into existing dictionaries. This dico (french apocope for dictionnaire, in French), will come in two editions: a 100% French eBook, and a bilingual French-English eBook.

Med, limo, jap, gas, doc, co-op, Cali, ad, ref…

Apocopes are frequently used in English, but also in other languages such as Spanish and French. The need for a specific dictionary emerged as learners of French don’t get a proper presentation of this interesting topic of colloquial expressions. It will also be a useful tool for those willing to practice French: understand, read, and speak like native speakers.
