The one and only...

For full multilingual functionality and awareness, English should be treated like all other languages. Therefore, although the central "International Beer Parlour" has only used English so far, there should also be one purely English Beer parlour.

Anyone wants a beer? — Vildricianus 22:24, 28 July 2006 (CEST)

Some links to drink to Wikipedia List of English Dialects, VOA Special English Word Book and Language Log. And for fun, w:Grimm's_law. Downchuck 04:47, 4 December 2006 (CET)

WordNet and EuroWordNet[edit]

Has anyone been to http://wordnet.princeton.edu/ or http://www.illc.uva.nl/EuroWordNet/ to import some of their ideas and/or collections of "defined meanings" - though WordNet uses a hierarchical ontology with synsets, etc? Could their databases be of any use to omegawiki? Dedalus 17:25, 20 January 2007 (EST)

Yes, the big man for the EuroWordNet is a Dutch guy .. and I hope to contact him in the near future. GerardM 17:58, 20 January 2007 (EST)
The University Saarland[1] started a new Project called EuroMatrix for providing automated translation of the languages in the EU. I've mailed them and hope that they will contact us too. MovGP0 18:52, 22 February 2007 (EST)

video definitions[edit]

I do not understand the question. GerardM 05:40, 1 June 2007 (EDT)

Google Gears[edit]

I've recently found this nice Beta Software from Google and it might speed up this wiki by providing a local database store as browser plugin. Using a sync-engine this might increase the performance of Omegawiki: http://code.google.com/apis/gears/index.html ys, MovGP0 10:35, 1 June 2007 (EDT)

Have you by any chance the time and skill to make this work with OmegaWiki? That would be fantastic. Cheers! Siebrand 19:36, 20 June 2007 (EDT)

Suggestion from a wikipedia user[edit]

Hey it would be nice if one could click on each word in the definition and be taken to its definition page. It needn't all be blue bold and underlined as this might increase reading difficulty. rjs 05:19, 4 July 2007 (EDT)

Are you suggesting that this would be a good idea for Wikipedia ???? (I do agree:) ) GerardM 06:41, 5 July 2007 (EDT)
