The Sindarin dictionary project

Words -- so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them. [N. Hawthorne]

Dragon Flame 2.0

Dragon Flame is a freeware application for Microsoft Windows (98, Me, XP, NT4, 2000), now also available on Linux. it includes the Sindarin dictionary, additional lexicons and a complete Sindarin corpus.

The latest version is Dragon Flame 2.0, released in December 2003. Here is a brief list of the new and exciting features added to the software since version 1.0 was first released in December 2002...

  • Extented search functions with regular expressions (see Edit menu). Great for those wanting to find and analyse similar patterns.
  • Automated Tengwar transcription (based on the TTT engine and Mans Bjorkman's modes -- courtesy of the YaTT development team)
  • Link to on-line dictionaries (e.g. Webster's) when your internet connection is active (see Tools menu). Great for non-native English speakers (such as myself!) who sometimes need to check a definition.
  • Updated documentation (see Help menu).
  • Source code included (for those who want to help improving the software).
  • The "Check updates" feature (broken in DF 1.0) is disabled by default (reserved for wizards only).
  • Fixes and improvements in the history mechanism.
  • DF 2.0 embeds a new version of the Sindarin Dictionary (lexicon version 0.993) including several corrections, a few additional entries, and a major re-work of all entries (better presentation; indications of register, domain, etc. when possible; parts of definitions moved to the etymologies or marked as definition "hints"; some additional discussions entered; some definitions changed...).

Download Dragon Flame 2.0 and simply enjoy!
