Questions for Danny:

  • What would the format for a dictionary look like?
  • Can/should etymology information be stored in a simple dictionary?
  • Is it possible to include several languages in the same dictionary?
    (e.g. Lang Belta + English + Español + Français + Deutsch, etc.)
  • Can/should simple phrase glosses be included in the same dictionary?
  • How are grammar rules stored, and can these be presented in a web UI?
  • Does DLx plan to create genetic dictionary web UI tools or toolkits?
  • Does DLx plan to create language translation web UI tools or toolkits?
