The dictionary can be found at this address: http://www.lakotadictionary.org/nldo.php
You can also access it by clicking on NLD-O in the upper right corner of the index page (next to the FAQ link). The VK is not displayed if you use the second method so, if you need to select a regional keyboard, you should right-click the icon and choose between "new window" or "new tab". VK will then be visible and you can select your regional keyboard.

Rolf wrote:What am I doing wrong?
While discussing a sentence in "The Buffalo Jump" I searched for áyA. NLD-O corrects the stressing and deliveres ayÁ. When become is entered in the English field, áyA shows up there, but a klick on it brings ayÁ again on the Lakota side. Does the software ignore that verb for reasons of sorting?
Anyway it reminded me, that a second look into the hardcopy is quitw helpful.
Rolf wrote:The same happened to me before, when I was doing excessive NLD-O research and in the meantime got automatically logged out of the forum due to inactivity.
Rolf wrote:I wonder if it would not be useful to have the opportunity to log-in seperately to NLD-O for learning activities outside the forum. As I pointed out before, NLD is more than just a dictionary and it is quite easy to forget time while roaming through entries and examples.
Kostya wrote:Hallo Rolf,
Frankly, I can't understand how can it happen, because personally I never get logged out unless I voluntarily do so. There is a checkbox "Log me automatically" when you log in, so you'll be for long, if not for keeps.
Kostya wrote:I guess it is possible but rather difficult for me: I use ready-to-use features of the forum, including the authorization means. Authorization here is, essentially, a cookie file at clients side and session file at server side, and they are one and the same for the whole site. So I have to program something separate for that end, instead of the current:
- Code: Select all

And if you do, give Kostya some points of appreciation. I think we can't give him enough appreciation for all the programming on the forum and NLD that he has done so far. I know he doesn't like the attention, but he deserves it.
There is more to come with respect to the NLD-O, Kostya is working on the lemmatizer which will enable looking up conjugated words, such as wéksuye (kiksúyA, owíčhauŋkolepi (olé).
