Traditionally, it was common for learners of new languages to maintain paper-based note books with an 'A to Z' of words and phrases. As new words and phrases were learned, they were added to the vocabulary in the appropriate section. Learners could then carry their small vocabulary around with them in order to flick through it and re-cap on words.
The main problem with this method is that entries are ordered by the date they were entered against the specific alphabet entry. Thus, although the A to Z is easy to find letters for, each entry has an undordered list of entries, duplicate entries often finding their way in. Eventually one of the letters runs out of space, and a new vocabulary created, copying old entries into the new one
eVocab seeks to deal with these issues by presenting a user-friendly experience and creating and maintaining personalised vocabularies for any language required.
A user-centric vocabulary is a vocabulary maintained by the end-user. It only contains words that the user has entered. The user enters new words as they learn more and more, and reinforce retention of the word via word entry (an important task in learning to spell the word correctly) and via tests.
It doesn't. The alphabet is built up as the user adds new words. For a new vocabulary, there will be no alphabet at all. When adding the first word, the alphabet will consist of one letter each in each language. So if a user enters the words foo for the first language and bar for the second language, the first language will contain one alphabetic letter - f, and the second lanugage will contain only b.
At the moment any language that uses the ISO Latin 1 character set is supported. This means the majority of Western languages are supported. Note that Welsh/Cymraeg digraphs - 'ch', 'dd', 'ff', 'll', 'rh', 'th' and 'ph' are supported and recognised as different letters to 'l', 'f' etc. Also, the Spanish letter 'ñ' is recognised as a different letter to 'n'.
An update is planned for December 2011 for catering for languages that use non-ISO Latin 1 character sets.
Although eVocab is free, and a small (as yet unfinished) application, there are many plans for it's future development. This includes the creation of company (that is, your company) specific vocabularies - whether they be for languages, medicine or industry-specific vocabularies. Want to know more?
