Xobdo – an online English-Assamiya dictionary
More and more people are taking to writing in Indian languages on the net and online dictionaries play a vital role here. I had once mentioned Shabdnidhi, an AJAX enabled online English – Hindi dictionary. Priyankoo, who is the first Assamese blogger, recently informed me about another such project called Xobdo, an online English-Assamiya dictionary. The collaborative project was started by Bikram Baruah, a petroleum engineer based at Abu Dhabi. They already have over 2500 words in their database and you may contribute too if you know the language, Xobdo has made available an online tool to type Assamiya directly. Kudos to Bikram and his team!
