Láadan quick search dictionary update

laadandict

I spent today and yesterday going through the entire Láadan dictionary. I classified words by “noun”, “transitive verb”, “intransitive verb”, and the different kinds of markers. Additionally, I added work breakdowns for some of the words that I had time to analyze. I also updated features in the dictionary app itself to make it more usable.

New Features:

  • Word breakdowns for some of the words – showing what the building blocks of a word is (shown in blue under the description).
  • Classification for words (nouns, intransitive verbs, affixes, etc.) listed with each entry.
  • Can choose from classifications in the dropdown box so that search results only meet that criteria – OR you can leave the search box blank and set a classification to only see items with that class.
  • Can select whether to search all (Láadan and English), search just Láadan terms, or just English terms to reduce amount of items as a result.

I will continue going through the dictionary and adding more information about how words are built. As always, the quick search dictionary is here: http://ayadan.moosader.com/gadgets/laadan-dictionary/ and the dictionaries (and the PHP-based search app) are available on GitHub here: https://github.com/Aya-Dan/Laadan-Dictionary . The dictionary is a little slower right now, but bear with me – I will try to fix it up to be better.

There may be errors, so please let me know if you see anything.
