Flexique derives from Lexique2, a lexical database of phonetic, lexical, morphosyntactic, and frequency information on French. Like its predecessor, Flexique is distributed as an open source resource, under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license.

1We wish to thank Boris New and Christophe Pallier, whose work on Lexique was an indispensable precondition for the constitution of Flexique, as well as an inspiration for attempting to build it. Boris New has been extremely helpful in sharing his expertise. Gilles Boyé and Delphine Tribout provided crucial help at various points. Flexique was designed at the Laboratoire de Linguistique Formelle and funded by Olivier Bonami’s IUF grant.
