This is the French forum at Wordreference.com. You can do a dictionary and thread search not only for words but for expressions that are difficult to find in most dictionaries, including slang expressions. Under "Resources," you'll find links to discipline-specific online dictionaries, and you can ask questions in the French-English vocabulary subforum.

Click on ARTFL. The ARTFL main database has thousands of searchable French works, primarily literary works. You can do searches for specific words or expressions.
