comment Is this French text (year 1558) describing a spirit level more than 100 years before this tool was invented?

It says the insect has the shape of a T or a level ("niveau"), with three feet on each side (or three feet overall). Does not look like a Spirit Level ("Niveau à bulle" in french). There is no mention of a bubble ("bulle") anywhere.

comment What is the correct way to say “I have a bad accent” ?
All what you say will be understood, but I would simply say "j'ai un mauvais accent en anglais" instead.

comment “Ingénieur du logiciel” or “ingénieur en logiciel”?
Or "ingénieur informaticien" - but this was ridiculized years ago by a funny french song :-). Actually nobody says "ingénieur en logiciel".

comment What purpose does the word “bien” serve in this context?
Here is a good start to become knight translates more to voilà/voici un bon départ pour devenir chevalier, same overall meaning, but different.

comment Why are O and E sometimes attached together, as in “les œufs”?
@Aerovistae - anpther reason why you don't see it that often is many software simply doesn't support it (not to mention keyboards or the combination of both), although it's getting better.
