Yes, this can be done using the "endings" fuzzy match algorithm, but
you must build your endings database with the correct dictionary
and affix files for French. The dictionary file can usually
be built by concatenating and sorting all the individual ispell
dictionary files for your language, and the affix file should be
provided with it. See and for more information.
