Galician open dictionary



Welcome to the largest Galician 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 Galician 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.

Sincerely,
Galician Working Group

What a beautiful word has put us in the limelight the anonymous companion, I suppose Galician by the expression used: Ai, miña parruliña, canto te quero! I want to think that parruliña is an affectionate diminutive of parrula , feminine of parrulo . And I want to think that parrulo is a diminutive of parro, which for my Asturian land also means wild duck. Children are also told that, by their way of walking at first, they resemble ducks. Parruliño in Galician, also means, innocent, without malice, foolish, foolish, foolish, like children and that is why the word radiates affection towards the most beloved people.
