This can be useful when you want to look up occurrences of a word or its Wikipedia article.
On the right side of the page, you'll find a sidebar with your search history at the top. Especially when searching for longer texts, you may forget the meaning you looked up earlier. In such cases, you can simply click on the English-French dictionary's history, and the translation will appear again.
French is a popular language, and many people learn this not-so-easy-to-pronounce language. Some of its words have even found their way into English (affair, allure, croissant, déjà vu, rendezvous). French is spoken in many parts of the world, and it can help you communicate.
The French language has many interesting aspects. Did you know, for example, that the synonym for a bicycle in French is "la petite reine" or "the little queen"? The term originates from Orange-Nassau princesses, who, as young Dutch girls, were avid cyclists. They later became queens. The nickname for the bicycle came from an 1898 article in La France when the queen-to-be visited Paris.
