Esperanto open dictionary

Welcome to the largest Esperanto educational and research project on the Internet. This open and editable dictionary aims to offer a tool where, on the one hand, users broaden knowledge about the different meanings that each of the words and expressions of Esperanto can adopt. And, on the other hand, give the same community the ability to expand the database with new words, unknown or unregistered, or expand the different meanings that can adopt the existing words. For identical words and according to which country of the world we move, it is very frequent to find completely different uses, that is why, once the official definition is mentioned, the dictionary allows users to expand it with new meanings or nuances. In short, a dictionary edited by users and for users. Daily among all the meanings uploaded by users will select one of them as word, expression or theme of the day. This meaning will appear on the home page just after this presentation for at least 24 hours. Finally, we have made the project extensible to words from other languages ??or disciplines, you can access these dictionaries through the drop-down that appears next to the search box and the operation is identical to the main dictionary. Hoping that the use of the dictionary is to his liking we say goodbye.

New Meanings collected in the dictionary



Malbebo is a humorous Esperanto word, meaning an elderly person. It comes from "bebo", the Esperanto word for "baby", with the prefix "mal-" added to signify "the opposite of". A literal English translation would be "unbaby". Also, how do you report Danilo's response for being wrong? "Ugly" is an adjective, and adjectives can't end with "-o" in Esperanto. "-o" is for nouns, while "-a" is for adjectives. The word for "ugly" would be "malbela", literally meaning "un-beautiful".
