The "Dictionary Search" page is for looking up items in the dictionary.
Check or un-check "Show Options" to show or hide the dictionary search and display parameters.
Select "Input" and "Output" languages, enter the text to search for in the "Lookup" field, select a "Match Type", and click "Search" to do the lookup. Note that you can search for multiple items by entering the items in separate rows. Enable or disable the audio play buttons or pictures via the "Audio" and "Pictures" check boxes.
Any items matching the search criteria are displayed in a table below the "Search" panel. If the dictionary items have audio files associated with them, "Play audio" and "Play audio slow" buttons will be displayed. Dictionary entries may include example sentences. Add dictionary item components to courses or plans using the the "Add to course or plan" buttons on the right.
Note that since the dictionary is cooperatively provided, the items you search for might not be present yet. Some public domain libraries have been uploaded, such as for Chinese Mandarin and Japanese. If you are a teacher, you can add dictionary entries using the "Edit Dictionary" page accessible via the "Edit dictionary" button link at the bottom.
