  1. Long time I've been looking for any online service, where I could store and keep my own words, with translation, example and train them with a written test. But did not find it anywhere. Numerous apps and sites offer pre-compiled abstract words with flashcards test, but I wish my words with a written test. So I refreshed computer lessons from school, studied basics of web design for 3 weeks on youtube and made such webpage. Now I use it to learn Finnish language and like it a lot. Maybe someone find it useful. http://testyourwords.com/ Share any ideas how to improve it.
  2. Hey Linguaholics! Not a long one today, but I have quite an interesting topic for you - the creation of a lexicon. A lexicon is the list of words in a language, and lexicons can be organised in many helpful ways. I use a site called Conworkshop (not sponsered or an employee), and they are a community based site containing many beginner to advanced level conlanging tools. One of the tools is a lexicon builder, which gives lists of different types of words for you to translate into your language, and then it stores the entries in your language's dictionary. Conworkshop is also a great tool as it notifies you of duplicated words, and helps you create nice sounding ones by allowing you to state the syllabic constructs. (Syllabic constructs say which sounds can go where or next to each other in a word, for example skdkfnjdwk isn't possible in English due to English's syllabic constructs). So that's how I make my words, and then I run them through a final test of using them in a sentence. If it sounds good, it can stay, otherwise it's bye bye! Keep in mind how your language should sound. My main language, Siniace, is meant to sound sexy and sleek like a mix of Italian, French & Spanish. Some languages, though, may strive to be more harsh and sharp. It doesn't matter which you go for, but don't try to mix them! Experiment, but be cautious. I leant the hard way. Haha. Anyway, how do you construct your words? Do you use syllabic construct checks, vocal tests or do you get a friend's opinion? However you complete the process, I'd love to know! Please support this new Conlang Forum on Linguaholic by commenting, completing the poll and checking back tomorrow for the next article. Have a good day! Frankie. Moderator and Editor of the Conlang Forum. (PS: Click the to visit the Conworkshop page - it's great!) https://conworkshop.com/

  5. Hello! Would somebody be so kind to help me find the most suitable synonym for the word "flexible", "flexibility" in relation to equipmnet, namely checkout counters (boxes) in supermarket. As a matter of fact, I need the word starting with L, that actually means that our checkouts arent standard but can be flexible (design). Thank you so much!
  6. Hi All! I would like to share with you my technique which I used to memorize foreign words. When I used to be a student and had an exam in foreign languages, I used to ask my fellow students to ask me the words from my dictionary, which we had to learn, and I had to tell them the correct word. I believe that this method helped me a lot in learning the difficult words. So, I came up with the idea of creating a small and simple Android app which acts like a personal dictionary. The purpose is simple: - You write down the words which you would like to remember into your phone and translate them - You can test your knowledge by playing - the program will ask you the words and you have to type the correct translation. For example, let`s say you study German and your are an English speaker. You save these words in your dictionary: table - der Tisch. The app will ask you "What is table in your studied language?", then you have to type "der Tisch". Simple, isn`t it? Of course, you can modify or delete the words which you don`t need anymore. There is an option to export your words to Google drive or similar. I m planning to add more features but this depends on how much free time I have... I know that this is a simple application right now, so I would be very happy if you share your ideas with me. If you wish to see some other features, don`t hesitate to let me know Just drop a message, or reply here. The app is called I know that word and can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.reminder.words.kirshi.wordsreminder It is free! I hope that you will find it useful! Thanks
  7. I recently discovered this app while looking for an offline translator and something to expand my vocabulary in either language. Let me tell you, it has a VERY nicely done design and aesthetic. Not only that, but it has quick games and quizzes that are incredibly helpful if your vocabulary quantity is lacking in either language (though it is mainly targeting English learners who speak Spanish I believe). Its games are quick and challenging, and I'm pretty sure it all works offline as well. Here's the Google Play download link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nglish.spanish.english.translator&hl=es_419
  8. Hello everybody, Many people I know, and, unfortunately, I have to add myself to that list, use words which in my native Russian are called "parasites". Those are the words you use far too often. Probably the best English equivalent would be a "filler". I'm pretty sure you've heard people speak in this way: "Like, I don't know. He is, like, oh my God, it's great. But I'm not sure. Is it, like, really that good for him?" Do you have the same problem, in your native or second language? Do you try to fight it? If you do, how do you go about it? I know I tend to abuse "Well, ...", "cute" and "really" in English. And in Polish I make diminutives far too often which is probably extremely annoying for some people. Do you have some advice? Thanks! Ania
