Open and Collaborative

English open dictionary

Welcome to the largest English 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 English 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.

palladium  122

Greek palladion. The Palladium was a wooden statue wrapped in the mystery of mythological legend, representing Palas Athena, the goddess of Athens. Others say that Athena created it in honor of his friend Pallas, daughter of Triton, who killed involuntarily working out in the fight to appear suddenly Zeus. The statue protected Troy until Ulysses and Diomedes stole it. There are many versions about their subsequent fate. The Romans used to say that Aeneas on their flight from Troy was brought to Rome and that it was kept in the Temple of Vesta, near the Tiber River.
