Electronic Greek-Turkish dictionary for young learners

The dictionary consists of 6.000 entries. It is designed for children from 6 to 15 years of age.

General features

  • Each word listed in the bilingual dictionary is followed by grammatical information (part of speech, inflectional forms, hyphenation), examples of different uses, pronunciation, the Turkish equivalent and a photo or a drawing.
  • ILSP / R.C. "Athena"’s morphological analyzer has been integrated into the system. The child has the possibility to type a word, which can be automatically corrected, if misspelled. In addition, each word type is grammatically recognized and connected to the initial lemma.
  • Every word appearing in the examples of use constitutes a lemma of the dictionary.
  • The software allows free navigation.
  • There are five ways of retrieving a word:
    • By typing the word
    • By choosing one of the letters of the alphabet
    • By scrolling down the vocabulary list
    • By clicking on the words of the examples
    • By clicking on the “vocabulary” field, which comprises all the words that have the same root with the lemma presented
  • The system comprises vocabulary and grammar exercises-games.
  • It also comprises two games that enhance the child’s concentration capability and mnemonic ability.
