General notes on this dictionary
35
All words in BOLD are not the words found in Sudre's original works, but are the proposed new meanings of the word
36
All words that are coloured dark red, and have a hash # next to them, obey the "reversed words have the opposite meaning" rule
37
Agent nouns are encased in square brackets [ ] when in the accentuation column
38
Each list of words in the accentuation column is ordered in the same way you place the accent on a word: verb, noun, agent noun, adjective and adverb. Any missing word forms are marked with an "x".
39
If a word doesn't follow the structure (outlined in the Grammar tab) for word accentuation, the form of the word (i.e. noun, adjective, etc.) will be marked explicitly in short-hand; v., n., adj., adv., etc. If the shorthand is followed by an exclamation mark, that indicates that Sudre has placed the word in that spot of accentuation, knowing that the type of the word doesn't follow the rules: for example, the adjective accent for sisolla (sisôlla) contains the word "analyst", which is a noun; marked as "analyst (n.!)". A "NA" or "no acc." will be placed when Sudre gives a word that is not a verb, but has no associated accent, meaning that word doesn't have a verb form.
40
Please note that I'm just a silly Australian, so I usually write words with an "ou" instead of just an "o" (i.e. flavour vs. flavor), and use an "s" instead of a "z" in the middle of words (i.e. anatomise vs. anatomize). They're two small differences between American and U.K./Australian English.
41
Double quotation marks "" indicate that whatever is in this cell is the same as what is in the cell above it (as " does in common short-hand)
42
If a certain accent doesn't change the meaning of a word, an equals-sign "=" will be placed in its place. This implies you can use the previous accent definition in that word.
43
Feminine words may be written with EITHER a double vowel: 'Sool', or a vowel with a bar or macron above it: 'Sōl'. For readability, this dictionary will stick to the doubling of the vowel.

Difficulties from "Dictionnaire alphabétique; Langue Musicale Universelle" (unsolved are in bold)
100
p130, "acoustique" is defined as solmidore. This is a mistake, as it should be solmiredo.p130 - acre and acreté - acre and sharpness (flavour) - laresolsol, which already means slipcover. Acre is acrid when properly translated. Also supposed to be for faresolsol, not laresolsolp131 - adhésif is adhesive but supposed to be an adj. for join/membership for doladomi
