PREFACE 

The wealth of scientific information which French medicine has to offer 
can properly be grasped by those who are able to be in constant touch with 
the literature in its original language. The monumental work of the in- 
dividual investigators in each chosen specialty is overwhelming by its pro- 
found erudition. The accumulated data during the recent war prove amply 
that the power of observation in its accuracy and precision as revealed by 
French scientists deserves special attention. To those who are willing to 
follow up closely the progress in French medicine in the original writings the 
present Dictionary is offered. Moreover, those who since the cessation of 
hostilities have decided to continue the study of the language will find in the 
Dictionary a means of learning its proper pronunciation. Each French 
word is accompanied by a combination of letters in English giving the pro- 
nunciation as accurately as possible. 

On a separate page a key for the latter is added and should be consulted 
frequently. 

Finally on the last page a table is presented showing measurements in 
the metric system corresponding to that used in United States.

KEY TO THE PRONUNCIATION OF THE FRENCH WORDS 

French 

a is designated as "ah" (English). It should have the same sound as "a" in the 

word "margin." 
^ or e is designated as "eh" (English). Pronounce as "e" in the word "never." 
e (not accented) is pronounced as " eh " but with lips very slightly open. 
eu'xs also designated as "eh," but the "e" of "never" should be pronounced with 
the lips only very slightly opened and prolonged. 
oeu. Same as "eu." 

i should be pronounced as English "e" but the sound must be soft and prolonged. 

It is designated as "ee" (like "ea" in "teamster"). 
is designated as "oh" like in the English exclamation: oh! 

u is pronounced like the English "u," but the pouting of the lips must be very much 
less marked. 
eille is designated as "ay." That means that the letter "a." of the "ay" should be 
pronounced like "a" in "table" but more prolonged and soft. 
y is designated as English "ee" and pronounced like French "e" (see above). 
en is designated as "ahn." It should be pronounced like the French "a" (see above), 
but prolonged and soon abandoned with a nasal intonation. The "n" of the 
"ahn" should not be distinct. But in "enn" there should be no nasal intonation 
and both n's must be distinctly pronounced. 
c before "e" or "i" must be pronounced like "s." 
lion is designated as "ssion;" in which the "i" is pronounced like a very soft English "e" 
and very rapidly joined to "on." The "n" should be given a nasal intonation 
but not a distinct English "n." 
g before the vowels "e" and "i" is to be pronounced as "zsh." 
j the same as "g." 
ou is to be pronounced as English "oo" in the word "smooth." 
oi is to be pronounced as English "ooah" but rapidly. 
eui is designated as "ehy" in which the "eh" is pronounced as above (see "eu") and 
the "y" is added only to render the "eh" soft and prolonged but it should not 
be pronounced like an English "y."i 
at is designated as "eh" (see above for the latter). 
OMJ is designated as "ooy." The "y" should not be pronounced like English "y." 

It is added only to render the "oo" sound prolonged and especially "soft." 
illo is designated as "eeyoh." For the pronunciation of "ee" and "oh" see above. 
The "y" is added to render the "o" very soft. 
in is designated as "ehn." For pronunciation see "eh." The latter sound must be 
prolonged and ended abruptly with a nasal intonation, but the "n" should not 
be pronounced as a distinct English "n." 
All French words of more than one syllable are accentuated on their last syllable.
