French writing

I don’t know if anyone cares or maybe you just like to type in French but the following keystroke list will aid you with accent marks for French words =o) J’éspere que tu l’aimes, à bientôt!

French Symbols and Accent Marks: made by holding down the key and number sequence

à = alt 133
â = alt 131

é = alt 130
è = alt 138
ê = alt 136
ë = alt 137

î = alt 140

ô = alt 147
ö = alt 148

û = alt 150
ù = alt 151

ç = alt 135
Ç = alt 0199

« = alt 174
» = alt 175

ANNNNND for fun (you’ll find a lot of combos with some playing ;o), some dingbats:

♪ = alt 13
☺ = alt 1
¿ = alt 168
♀ = alt 12
♂ = alt 11

Go ahead! Just punch in whatever number sequence your heart desires =oD

One more thing! The BANGS french mnemonic device stands for Beauty, Age, Number, Good-ness and Size when deciding on where adjectives are placed in relation to their nouns (in short, if the word fits into one of those categories, the word will go before the noun everytime). Some examples:

1) Le beaux garçon – the handsome boy
2) Une vielle ville – the old city
3) Il y a trois filles – There are 3 girls
4) Très bon travail – Very good work
5) Le grande hôtel – The big hotel
