The Yourdailygerman Dictionary

Hello everyone,

and welcome to the final surprise for our E-May-L-Special.
Are you ready? Are you?!
Well, then here it goes… this site now has its own

Yourdailygerman Dictionary

Some of you might remember this from last year’s Advent Calendar. Well, there you go… I actually finished a project I am teasing for once :).
Unlike that book about non separable prefixes that I promised years ago. It’ll come though. I’ll finish it, so don’t you worry.

Anyway, so this idea of a glossary has been in the back of my head for a long time. There are so many words hidden in the articles and my goal was always to make them more accessible. But for the glossary, I didn’t know how.
And then, a little over a year ago, I found a really amazing person to help me with the programming part, me and my girlfriend could focus on entering all the dates… I… I mean data.

And now it’s actually ready to be used as a beta version :) :) :) 

Here’s what you can do:

  • Look up any word we ever talked about.  And I mean ALL the words, not just the actual topics. 
  • Get the meaning or meanings right away
  • See important grammar info like plural or the verb forms
  • The translations are “handmade” by me and I added usage notes to give you a better sense of the meaning
  • It’s about 2.700 entries so far, most of them really useful words

and

  • you can actually also search for English words, not just German

And as if that wasn’t enough, you also get a reference to the article in which we talk about the word AND you can even show the mini info about that article. So you can see the little about snippet, an overview over which words are covered and the cartoon.

And we won’t stop here!
We haven’t finishing entering yet, we’re actually at about two thirds. But once that’s done, what I’ll do next is add audio for the entries, so you can click play.
And then, we also want to give an example sentence for each entry, with the translations, just like in the article. And theeeeeen… maybe, at some point, you’ll have your own…

Flashcards 

 Let’s … let’s keep this on the hush hush though. There’s lots to do before that :).

Now, I said the whole thing is still in beta phase, so it’s not perfectly polished. And the load time initially is a bit long.
Like… once it’s loaded, it’s actually quite fast and also instant, so you can just type and see results immediately without hitting enter.
But yeah… it takes a  few second to load.

Anyway… I think this really is kind of a milestone, for me personally at least. And I absolutely can’t wait for your feedback :).
So head right over and let me know what you think:

Oh… and last but not least:

Big thank you to Daniel and Anji. Without you, this wouldn’t be possible!!

Good on you, mate. I’m sure this took a HUGE amount of time with likely little reward.

Just stopping by to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Emannuel and the members who have paid a little extra to accommodate those of us who cannot currently afford memberships. I look forward to finally getting a hold of this language once and for all and paying the kindness forward once work resumes. Vielen Dank!

Hello good Sir,
have you ever written an article or blog or explanation about when to use ‘ich bin’ and ‘mir ist’ ?
I find it very confusing. Like, Ich bin verwirrt. Or should it be mir ist verwirrt? Idk
To be honest.. I’m feeling cold today. Ich bin kalt. Wait,, it’s mir ist kalt. Eh??
Yep, maybe i’m kind of sick today. Ich bin krank. Wait no, no , mir ist krank.
AHH F it
Please help me , and ich freue mich auf Ihre Antwort :)
MFG Liliana

I have just joined and this is my first newsletter. i should be writing in German but I can never write as fast as i can talk in German and then I have to correct all my grammar. I absolutely love the dictionary. What a brilliant and useful resource, I am passing the site on to all my teacher friends for those students who just love the language. Thank you so much for all the hard work.

Hello community, I just want to say a big thank you to Emmanuel who approved my membership for this wonderful blog to help me learn german, which has been a life long dream (my dad is austrian and I live in Brazil, never had the chance to learn my mother tongue). Special thanks to all those who made extra contributions to make this learning experience possible. Cheers!

Hello Mr. Schuchart,

Thanks for providing us with this wonderful dictionary. It has so many great features which makes it a unique. One particular feature which especially struck me was that one could refer to the article in which a word was talked about.

It’d be great if the search term could be added onto the URL, so you can bookmark searches or add it as a custom search engine into Chrome.

For instance, I have Chrome set up so that when I type de and a space into the search bar, I can type any German word to search Dict.cc. The way I do this is by adding a custom search engine using the URL https://www.dict.cc/?s=%s. The %s is then replaced with whatever search term I enter in the search bar after the trigger keyword.

It would be great to do the same with this dictionary.

Das ist der Hammer!

I wonder if there’d be an option to get the flashcards as an anki deck

Superior ! Just what I was looking for.

Publish it in soft cover(taschenbuch), so it’s portable anywhere.

Awesome! is just little to say about your work. I’m amazed with the dictionary because of the usefulness. It’s not only a dictionary, but also a complete guide.

Thank you very much and greetings from Uruguay!

Hiya,

Someone in the glossary comments has already corrected the typos on the main article :)

But I’ll keep you posted on any typos in the glossary itself as I go through it!

As for the glossary, ABSOLUTELY AWESOME is an understatement!!!

And the timing is absolutely perfect! As it looks like I (and lots of others) are going to have a really looong boring summer, what better thing to do than use all the extra time on our hands to hone our German skills? And this glossary will sure help a lot!

Thank you, Emanuel, Anji and Daniel!
