Greenlandic online/print dictionary with your input!

Postby juicypuffin » 2011-05-21, 13:10

I've started to make a Greenlandic-English dictionary that will both be online and, eventually, in print form.

If you have words that you've noticed are mistranslated, outdated, or not included in other Greenlandic-English dictionaries please post them here so I can include them in this dictionary. I would also love it if a native speaker checked over the definitions to make sure they are correct.

24 May, 2011: 61 words are in the dictionary.

Ouch! What a pain!
It's very nice you're making a Greenlandic/English dictionary, I'm sure a lot of people will appreciate and I'm sure I'll use it some day, but yet I'm not ready to learn Greenlandic, but I will in the future, it seems a beautiful language.

Ahh, thanks. I'm almost blind so sometimes when I type stuff that looks so similar like rn and m, I mess it up.
