Dictionary entry: belong

The entry for "belong to" in the sense of being someone's property suggests "appartenir," which is fine, but I think it is more common to simply use "être," as in "c'est à moi." Not sure of the best way to express that in a dictionary entry, but perhaps simply "être à" listed after "appartenir à."

    Hello again, Kenneth Barger

    Thank you, I have added "être à"; it will appear in the dictionary at its next update in the weeks to come.
