Check out the E-book reader with best dictionary look-up feature ?

BTW, there's also a French MR subforum
. Why don't you ask the French MR users for some recommendations?
When I encounter this problem, I simply copy the word (using Select, Right Arrow and Space), delete the article and the apostrophe and then look up the word manually. However, this method works only with uninflected words.
In spite of these annoying shortcomings I like my Kindle 3, because you can install any number of Mobipocket dictionaries and it's relatively easy to convert dictionaries from other formats to the Mobipocket format.
