French dictionary update

Today's update to the French dictionary improves on the entries to various common words and adds various new words and phrases in various scientific fields. This new vocabulary reflects various recent coinages such as:
  • from sociology, mème and mémétique
  • from the field of crime and security, the entry for passeport now includes passeport biométrique
  • from the field of medicine, terms including myositis and anticholestérol
  • from the field of business, brevetabilité and troll de brevets
  • from the field of maths, various terms not necessarily newly coined but lacking from the dictionary, such as parallélipède and various types of triangle
Note that these are only a sample of the new terms added.
