General

  • if you are adding a word, make sure it isn't there already
  • if a word with the exact same spelling means two different things, add it as two separate words eg: la pêche(http://www.memrise.com/item/339064/peche-peach/): peach la pêche(http://www.memrise.com/item/317287/peche-fishing/): fishing
  • If there are masculine/feminine versions, add the masculine as the main one, feminine as French alternative nouns (always in singular form, except if they are always used in the plural, such as "les cheveux")
  • add the French with the determinate article "le, la, l' "
  • add the English with no article
  • add as French alternatives both: 1. the word without the article and 2. the word with the indeterminate article (un, une)

eg: la chaise(http://www.memrise.com/item/317258/chaise-chair-3/)


  • for nouns which have a masculine and feminine form, the main form should be the masculine, and the feminine form should be in the French alternatives

eg le réalisateur(http://www.memrise.com/item/317276/realisateur-director-film/)

Adjectives

  • always in singular form
  • add the masculine version of the French
  • add the English
  • add the feminine version (if different) as a French alternative

eg long(http://www.memrise.com/item/22897/long-long/)

Verbs

  • always infinitive
  • add the French
  • add the English infinitive (with the 'to')
  • add the English form without the 'to' in the English alternatives

eg marcher(http://www.memrise.com/item/20330/marcher-to-walk/)


  • reflexive/non-reflexive verbs: add both forms separately.

There are slightly different instances here:


Be careful here, because often there will be a mix-up between the reflexive and non-reflexive definitions

If you are cleaning up a word

  • get rid of any errors (this includes errors in accents - the website recognises both with and without accents so there is no need for the non-accented versions. Same for ç and œ - only leave the correct version)
  • get rid of anything that appears twice or more
  • do a general clean-up to get rid of things that don't fit in with the convention described below (so for example delete 'pêche (f)' and similar)
  • note that 'alternatives' are listed under the tab 'other'
  • if adding an alternative (either French or English), add it as it appears in its own main page (so, following the convention)
