A better reference for Engish is 

The topic here are functions, not numbers.
For numbers you have the term "additive inverse of x is -x" or 
"multiplicative inverse of x is 1/x". But in context of functions 
"inverse" always means the inverse in respect to composition.

I don't know French. Astonishing, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sine has 
no direct translation to French.

Kind regards
