• Intelligent searching
Thanks to the application’s data entry options, you can find a particular verb:
– by typing only the first few letters of the verb;
– when typing the word with a typo or spelling error;
– by entering a conjugated form of the verb.
The serach engine gives you exact matches – aimer, for example, also brings up the reflexive s’aimer–as well as near matches, in case you meant to type in aider or limer.
On the same page, it also shows you homophones: conjugations that sounds the same but, infuriatingly, are spelled differently. Exact homophones of aimer include aimez and aimées, while aimai and aimaient are close homophones – not identical, but near enough.
• Analysis of conjugated forms
An analysis engine works in conjuction with the search engine to precisely find and display the description of any conjugated form. For example, when typing “will have eaten”, the form is analysed as the verb “to eat” in the past future tense (3rd person singular).
• 10,000 verbs
Bescherelle, La Conjugaison includes the 10,000 verbs in contemporary French and includes for each one:

The conjugation table for both simple and compound tenses enables you to change from the active to the passive voice and vice versa.
