 Dear Sir/Madam,

We are pleased to announce the online publication of the Dictionnaire de la
langue française (the Dictionary of the French Language) by Émile Littré. The
first dictionary to illustrate both philological lexicography (more than
300,000 quotations taken from French literature since the Middle Ages) and
historical lexicography, Littré’s lexicographic enterprise is particular in
that it did not remain limited to its own epoch. Rather, it ushered in a
tradition which is still alive and admired today.

The electronic edition by Classiques Garnier Numérique is itself the result of
considerable lexicographic and scholarly work, the aim of which was to make
the resources and riches of this exceptional dictionary, insufficiently known
and appreciated until now, available to users.

Consequently, users can search each rubric of the Littré entries: meaning,
comments, synonyms, history, and etymology, etc. It is also possible to search
around the entries themselves, be it the grammatical category, pronunciation,
variants or markers of usage or field, etc. Quotations and proverbs each have
a dedicated search screen, facilitating the use and study of this unrivalled
corpus. The potential of the numerous cross-references and links between
definitions established by Littré has been fully realized thanks to a vast,
classified network with specific search fields. The new digital edition of the 
Littré deserves a place in each and every library.
