Nordisk barneordbok på nett

Elektronisk, skandinavisk, barneordbok med lyttefunksjon


The Nordic Dictionary for Children is an electronic dictionary consisting of approximately 3,400 entries in each of the three Scandinavian languages, Danish, Norwegian (Bokmål and Nynorsk) and Swedish. Each entry has a short written text (e.g. definition, example). All entries including the short text will be recorded so that the users can listen to them. When one is working with the neighbouring languages in Scandinavia the pronunciation often causes interference problems which blur the understanding. The dictionary is intended for children from 12 years upwards, it is for free use on Internet and as an app for the iPhone. It is intended as a resource in the teaching of neighbouring languages in school, which is part of the curriculum in Scandinavia from undergraduate level onwards. Users knowing Faroese, Icelandic, Greenlandic, Finnish or Northern Sami may use their own language for searching, but the hits will be in one of the Scandinavian languages. The project is part of the campaign to maintain inter-Nordic language understanding among children and young people. It has Nordic funding and is edited by three seniors from the Language Councils in Scandinavia. The dictionary will be launched in August 2012.
