: I've looked through all your files on your languages several times. One thing I've noticed is that there isn't even one English to x lexicon on this site. Why? :
Well, because I haven't needed them. When I need a word in x, I do a search on the original Word document. And I assume that others can search using their browsers.
This also avoids a lot of extra bookkeeping. When I create a new Verdurian word, for instance, it has to be entered in the V-to-E dictionary, the E-to-V one (possibly in several places), the thematic dictionary, and the on-line version of the latter.
By the way, the English-to-Verdurian dictionary is available online in Word format; see the embassy page. No one has seriously tried to learn any of the other languages-- although I did get a postcard once in Cadhinor. :)
