Mirad Grammar/Mirad-English Dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Method One[edit | edit source]
- Click on the search link below to search the 91,000+ word Mirad<->English Dictionary in either language direction. This search method invokes an external web program that is the most up-to-date.
- Once you are on the non-Wiki Mirad Dictionary query page, you can get back here by pressing the back arrow on your browser. You can also make the link a separate browser tab or window and consult it that way.
- Note that you cannot edit the dictionary. If you see a mistake, an omission, or have a suggestion for creating a new word or expression, you can leave me a message on my discussion page.
- Notice that in this external interface, the search direction is English->Mirad each time you search unless you specifically change it to Mirad->English.
- Notice also that seaches are exact matches unless you precede or follow the search term with the regular expression .*. For example, the input .*dib in the Mirad->English search direction will find every Mirad expression ending in dib. By the same token, red.*tion in the English-Mirad direction will find every expression that begins with red and ends in tion. Simply put, .* represents an stretch of unknown letters, spaces, or other characters.
- If you know regular (regex) expressions, other patterns like [^rl] (= not containing an r or l) can be used.
Method Two[edit | edit source]
- You can also look up words in the Mirad Lexicon. This is fairly static, as this dictionary is not updated that often. The advantage is that you can click on a link to get back to Mirad Grammar.
Method Three[edit | edit source]
- In another, separate, but related, Wikibook entitled Mirad Thesaurus you can find Mirad vocabulary arranged thematically. The problem is that this book can get outdated quickly.
