Synonym distinctions by Office québécois de la langue française

Recommended Posts

l’Office québécois de la langue française has excellent webpages discussing the fine distinctions of various synonyms, e.g. the page about éclaircir and éclairer


I wonder if there is another website, especially one hosted by a formal institution. The best would be one on Centre National de Ressources Textuelles et Lexicales (www.cnrtl.fr), a branch of French Academy of Sciences if I'm not mistaken. But as far as I can tell, they don't have such webpages. The Québécois pages are definitely authoritative. But sometimes I wonder if they may unintentionally bring in word connotations and nuances that are in Canadian French but not in French French.
