I had been using Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English on a computer app. It was a great experience working with a dictionary that gives you pronunciations, examples with sound, thesaurus, and many more. I am wondering if there is a similar (digital) dictionary for French?

I have no experience with the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, but the free online dictionaries on the Larousse website may be useful. In particular:

  • The monolingual French dictionary has a sample pronunciation of the canonical form and links to synonyms. It does also have examples of usage, but there is no audio sample for those.

  • The bilingual dictionaries have sample pronunciations of the canonical form and of the examples used to illustrate usage.

Larousse has also published some phone apps. However, those are not free, and I have no idea what features are available as I have never used them.
