Marc looks to have given an answer. Maybe if  the specification page 
<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim/Special_Phrases> had more 
on it it would be helpfull? Prefereably in French? Once you have more 
maybe you could put it there? Helps the next guy.

Trust me - your not the only one. Most just bypass the problem and don't 
try to fix it. If you manage the fix .. buy a lottery ticket. If you 
don't come back here and restate the problem and what you have done ... 
someone may know.

Thanks for your answer Marc .. not an area I'm involved in (yet).
