Message 1: Online dictionary searchable in the pronunciation

Subject: Online dictionary searchable in the pronunciation


I am interested in finding an online dictionary (or similar) of French
that is searchable in the pronunciation (as opposed to the orthography).
Ideally, this would allow me to put strings of IPA or similar characters
and it would return all words which include these strings of sounds. If
anyone knows of such a dictionary, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry I can't think of a more intelligent way to ask, but... I wonder
if anyone knows of a source of English words with meanings that are
not the sum of their morphological parts, as in BUILDING or AUTHORIZE.

Thanks,
Mimi Lipson
