Geirfa - On The Web Description

Geirfa - On The Web - A simple application that helps you learn and test your Welsh vocabulary

A simple application that helps you learn and test your Welsh vocabulary.

Geirfa - On The Web, where you can easily test your Welsh knowledge. You can choose to test yourself on a small selection of words (perhaps on a single theme) or your complete dictionary.

The words are defined in standard text files to allow you to modify definitions to fit your local area, to include your own definitions of words and add new words and phrases and to make it easy to share vocabulary with friends and colleagues.

Here are some key features of "Geirfa - On The Web":

Geirfa has been designed to try to be flexible and to work in different ways:
- Random Welsh to English or English to Welsh questions.
- Geirfa adds words to its list, so duplicates don't repeat and you can have several meanings for the same word (any one of which will be a correct answer).
- the', 'a', 'to' etc. are optional, so for the word 'mynd', Geirfa will accept 'go' and 'to go' (if the database has 'mynd=to go').
- You can open a single file of words or a directory of files (which will include its subdirectories). This lets you concentrate on a small set of words at first and then gradually expand the test-set.
- You can force Geirfa just to ask you English to Welsh, Welsh to English and/or the longer questions if you wish to concentrate on (or exclude) one of these.
- Where they are different, Geirfa can show North or South Wales words (or both).
- The application can be configured to use Welsh or English buttons, menus etc.
- These options can be configured as your 'normal' mode (e.g. always use North or South Wales words) but also they can be modified while you are using Geirfa (e.g. to change to/from teaching/learning mode).

- There is a teaching/learning mode in which you can go through the loaded words being shown the answers as you go.

Large, expandable vocabulary:
- Geirfa is supplied with a large dictionary of words including all those listed in the Mynediad and Sylfaen courses so you don't need to write your own if you don't want to.

A configurable vocabulary database:
- Vocabulary files can be designed to ask questions only from Welsh to English or English to Welsh
- This allows you to test things like mutations and plurals which work best when you are given the English and asked for the Welsh (with correct mutations etc.)
- It is possible to be specific about the answer expected by including extra information in brackets, for example, you can specify the gender of adjectives such as 'pretty (feminine)' = 'tlos' and if Geirfa asks for the English, it will ignore the brackets when it checks the answer (i.e. the answer to 'tlos' is 'pretty'). This can be used for any part of the language, not just adjectives. Or it can also be used to add extra clues to the answer
- You can ask for the answer to a question (good for testing yes/no answers)
- You can also ask for a question which would produce the specified answer
- You can specify fill-in-the-blank questions
- Idioms can be specified so that the user can either enter the literal translation or the meaning

- You can add words from the Geirfa screen as well as by creating and editing text files.
- And, if you really want to, you can use your own image in the place of the dragon.

Requirements:

- Java

Limitations:
