Aboriginal Language Dictionary Program
Program is designed for any Aboriginal language. It has four internal
databases, New Items, Published Items, Combined Items & Spelcheck
Items. Data can be added to the first two databases from a text
only back slash coded file, or it can be directly keyboarded into
the database window. Once a database of New Items is compiled,
it can be combined with data from the Published Items, and or
Spelcheck Items databases and alphabetised in the Combined Items
database. This material can be edited co-ordinating parallel entries,
then it can be produced in a text only back slash file for publication
or storage. This same material can be fed back into Dictionary
Program making it available for further editing. Dictionary Program

example sentences of each dictionary item to the selected database.
The English gloss will also be conveyed if IT text files are used.
