GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
French term or phrase:
aile (synonym de dent)
leaf (synonym of tooth) "'Tooth' for a gearwheel, 'leaf' for a pinion."
French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / pinions
French term or phrase:aile (d'un pignon)
The definition is "Nom donné aux dents d'un pignon".
GDT proposes "leaf" though this isn't part of the definition of "leaf" in the Merriam Websters.
A KudoZ search turns up lots of "ailes" but no leaves, only wings!
Perhaps someone can confirm/correct ?
Thanks Susan. "Tooth" corresponds to "dent", I'm looking for the English synonym that is equivalent to the French synonym of "aile". I'm very familiar with the website you refer to, I'll check it out further. Thanks for reminding me about it!
