Antidote: a Reference

August, 2016 Language Matters

As a user of Antidote, you might have wondered how to cite our dictionaries and guides in a reference.

First of all, here is a general template for citing the software in a bibliography:

Antidote 9 (software, version 3). Druide informatique, Montreal, 2016

Here is an example of a citation from a specific entry in one of the dictionaries:

“helper”, Definitions dictionary, Antidote 9 (software, version 3). Druide informatique, Montreal, 2016

You may follow the same format when citing the other dictionaries (Synonyms, Combinations, Conjugation, etc.)

Here is an example of a citation from a specific article in the guides:

“False Friends”, Lexicon guide, Antidote 9 (software, version 3). Druide informatique, Montreal, 2016

You may follow the same format when citing the other guides (Grammar, Syntax, Style, etc.)

Here is a general template for citing the website (such as the home page):
