Some hints and helps for using this dictionary (please read on if this
is your first visit):
A Kansas Heritage Group site.
- One of the best features of our on-line dictionary is that it is multimedial.
At the present time, 391 words are "linked"
to sound files, so that you can hear the word pronounced. We will be adding more sound files
weekly, until the whole dictionary is "live". The link will download the sound file, open the
correct helper application, and play the file. You will perhaps have to do some
set-up work for all this to work (depends on your browser capabilities
and set preferences).
- The dictionary opens in the English-Potawatomi format by default.
You can change back and forth between Eng-Pot and Pot-Eng by choosing the
appropriate link above in this window.
- Let the entire dictionary load before skipping to a section.
It's all one document, and it's pretty long (which is good!), so it might
take a minute or two. If you find the later letters missing, RELOAD the
dictionary by clicking on "English" or "Potawatomi"
- There are three windows in this framed page. This one is called the
Title page; it doesn't change. The one on the right is called the
Entries page; it is the actual dictionary, and it changes back and
forth between Eng-Pot and Pot-Eng, according to the choice you make on
this title page. The window below is called the Details page. It
will change the most, the result of links you choose in the Entries page.
Here's the important part: you can always go back in the Details page
if you need to by clicking and holding somewhere on the window. This
causes a menu of choices to pop up. Release on "Back in frame"
and the previous screen will appear. Experiment to become familiar with
this feature, which works on any framed page.
- The Details window below opens by default with information about pronouncing
our symbols and information about the sources we used in compiling this
word list. You can always get that information back by clicking here.
