Mục đích Sửa đổi

Dự án nhằm tạo một cơ sở dữ liệu từ điển hình minh họa các từ, các thành ngữ được dùng phổ biến trong tất cả ngôn ngữ. Cơ sở dữ liệu này phải được cả con người và máy tính đọc được, để có thể dùng trong các ứng dụng học ngoại ngữ, như flashcard, v.v.

Justification Sửa đổi

There are many words that cannot be properly conveyed by their description or translation alone. Additionally, visual representation greatly reinforces assimilation. The Picture Dictionary is of special interest for those interested in "translation-free" language learning. Translation-free language learning is still a self-defeating endeavor nowadays, due to the fact that there is no practical way for a beginner student to find out the meaning of a new word without relying on a bilingual dictionary. We already have a huge image bank at Wikimedia Commons that could be incorporated on this project in a partially automated way. This project could also be used to add missing images to Wikipedia articles and to illustrate the main Wiktionary entries.

1 - Create thematic lists of vocabulary entries. This would be best done by using the Wiktionary category list, but if it's not found to be adequate, it should be improved based on other sources, such as the main Wikipedia categories, Wordnet, and other works.

2 - Select the relevant entries by accessing their frequency. This can be done by using a frequency list, searching within a corpus, or a web search.

3 - Get some representative pictures from Wikimedia Commons, upload if necessary. For added cultural authenticity, the picture should from a place where the language is primarily spoken, if available. But missing pictures should be added from the English picture list until a better one is found.
