Please read the following instructions:

  1. To find phrasal verbs or compound words, look for them with hyphens. For example, "be-afraid", not "be afraid".To exploit the potential of this dictionary-translator software, you can look up multiple words (e.g. synonyms) at the same time.
  2. Most nouns and verbs are (still) not inflected - Look for the most simple expressions first. For example, "I go house", instead of "I went home". Then find the correct inflection of "go" (1st person, past tense) and "house" (accusative):
  3. You can further look up the Indo-European words in the Latin version (for precision of English meanings) and machine translations into the German version. Pokorny's Indo-European Etymological Dictionary is also available for reference as dictionary-translator.
