Also, how will the alternate character sets work? I'm interested to know because Kãmuhnya has a Hangul-esque vertical character derivation system that means it has either 36 letters or more than 6,000,000. This has inhibited me from ever making a Kãmuhnya dictionary, so if you could somehow make layerable characters, it would be very helpful.
Draque wrote:Heyo guys. A few days ago I made a post asking whether a good tool for creating conlang dictionaries currently exists, and it seems like there aren't any really fleshed out ones that exist currently. So I thought I might put one together!
What features would be helpful in creating a conlang dictionary program? Here's my basic thought in terms of the basic features, but please respond with anything that you would like to see included!
1) Ability to use alternate character sets and arbitrary fonts.
2) Ability to create custom word types for languages with nonstandard types
3) Ability to record word properties
4) ability to set synonyms/antonyms in a way that autoupdates properties of each word accordingly
5) ability to set audio file as example pronunciation of word
6) Ability to include various documentation (arbitrary number of documents) with dictionary files to allow conlang author to distribute grammar rules, pronunciation guides, etc.
6) basic searching ability
- filter by type
- search by word, or word fragment
- search by word meaning (a synonym in the local language)
If there are any other features that would be helpful, please include them in responses!
