API

The Lexicala Web API provides access to K Dictionaries' quality cross-lingual lexical data across 50 languages, including numerous language pairs and multilingual combinations.

Our REST API enables flexible search options and returns JSON responses, whether complete dictionary entries or specific components – featuring rich syntactic and semantic information, sense definitions and various means of disambiguation, examples of usage and multiword expressions, translations and more – allowing easy processing and seamless integration with other applications.

The API also supports RDF, providing JSON-LD responses for use with Linked Data and Semantic Web technologies.

Data

Our resources rely on deep and detailed lexical analyses of human languages, meticulously deciphering and mapping their linguistic DNA, identifying and categorizing the different elements, and linking them to each other and across multiple languages.

These datasets have been developed over the years by K Dictionaries and published by its partners in various digital and print media – serving millions of users around the world.

All the content is human-curated, enriched by automatic language generation and supplemented by morphological word form lists, language and grammar guides, biographical and geographical tables, phonetic transcription (IPA), alternative scripts, and vocal pronunciation.

Dictionaries

The Lexicala data stems from numerous lexicographic resources that have been compiled by experienced lexicographers at K Dictionaries, for the creation of monolingual, bilingual, multilingual and learner’s dictionaries. Each dictionary prototype was conceived with its own macrostructure and entry microstructure to serve a unique purpose and satisfy a specific target user group. The following dictionary series are available online, in mobile apps, and in print.

In addition to cross-lingual lexicographic data, LEXICALA offers related linguistic resources:

Dictionaries

The lexical data provided by LEXICALA has evolved over the years into its current cutting-edge cross-lingual form.

It originates from numerous lexicographic resources that have been compiled by experienced lexicographers for use in various dictionaries. Each dictionary prototype was conceived with its own macrostructure and entry microstructure to serve a unique purpose and satisfy a specific target user group.

The final data structure and format evolved to facilitate direct and seamless publication in a wide range of digital and print media.

Today, the main dictionary series serving as the basis of LEXICALA’s data sets are the following:

PASSWORD

The groundbreaking semi-bilingual English dictionary which was originally introduced in the 1980’s.

Local language versions have since been published by dozens of local publishers and used by millions of intermediate-level language learners.

PASSWORD consists of an English-English core featuring brief translation equivalents for each sense of an entry in the user’s mother tongue, along with a
native-language to English index and supplements on English language and grammar.

PASSWORD also constitutes the core of the largest ENGLISH MULTILINGUAL dictionary set in the world today, which includes nearly fifty languages.

Passport

A series of detailed and multi-layered lexicographic datasets for 25 European and Asian languages.

Each language resource is created from scratch, using a methodology based on corpus evidence, and with a consistent overall framework and technical infrastructure across all languages.

The underlying monolingual layer can either be used on its own or serve as a base for adding translation equivalents and producing bilingual and multilingual versions, which can also be cross-linked to the other language sets.

So far, nearly one hundred GLOBAL language pairs have been developed manually.

GLOBAL

A series of detailed and multi-layered lexicographic datasets for 25 European and Asian languages.

Each language resource is created from scratch, using a methodology based on corpus evidence, and with a consistent overall framework and technical infrastructure across all languages.

The underlying monolingual layer can either be used on its own or serve as a base for adding translation equivalents and producing bilingual and multilingual versions, which can also be cross-linked to the other language sets.

So far, nearly 100 language pairs have been developed manually, as part of the Global dictionary series.

MULTILINGUAL

The Lexicala Multilingual resources are unmatched by any other, covering nearly fifty languages, interweaved with each other.

They connect the monolingual, bilingual and multilingual layers of the GLOBAL and PASSWORD datasets, in a cross-lingual network of networks.

The Password datasets are machine-reversed and manually edited to produce minute glossaries of different languages to English, which are then expanded by automatically adding translations in more languages. The Global datasets are produced by juxtaposing bilingual versions of a particular language. The original human created content is further enhanced and extended by automatic manipulations of the data.

The internationally acclaimed Random House Webster's College Dictionary was originally conceived for American university students and general users. It provides excellent coverage of the English language, including 130,000 entries with 200,000 senses.

After Random House closed down its reference division, it entrusted K Dictionaries with continuing the work on this landmark linguistic asset, updating the content and upgrading its data structure.

Mobile apps for Android and Apple devices using data of Random House Webster's College Dictionary are available from DaolSoft, and Commercial Press International has recently published a new print edition in China.
