Spanish open dictionary

Welcome to the largest Spanish educational and research project on the Internet. This open and editable dictionary aims to offer a tool where, on the one hand, users broaden knowledge about the different meanings that each of the words and expressions of Spanish can adopt. And, on the other hand, give the same community the ability to expand the database with new words, unknown or unregistered, or expand the different meanings that can adopt the existing words. For identical words and according to which country of the world we move, it is very frequent to find completely different uses, that is why, once the official definition is mentioned, the dictionary allows users to expand it with new meanings or nuances. In short, a dictionary edited by users and for users. Daily among all the meanings uploaded by users will select one of them as word, expression or theme of the day. This meaning will appear on the home page just after this presentation for at least 24 hours. Finally, we have made the project extensible to words from other languages ??or disciplines, you can access these dictionaries through the drop-down that appears next to the search box and the operation is identical to the main dictionary. Hoping that the use of the dictionary is to his liking we say goodbye.

How has the dictionary evolved?

First of all, we want to thank all the collaborators for their help, since without them and them this project would not be possible.

With this second sense it is also used by Hippocrates in the 4th century BC.

furoya Image


I assume they are not consulting in Portuguese or spamming. But if you want to be Spanish, the query is an atomic burrada. The verb reuse is actually not valid, but it is used (and reúsa -cuak-) instead of reuse, so it can be a wasteland for some of its inflections, as well as refusesa ( verb refuse).

furoya Image


If it is not a burrada by the verb plural it can be a typing error, also by verses, servos, and some more.
