Search in a lexicon

  • Problem: Search engine is not made for dictionary needs.
  • Who would benefit: Contributors and readers
  • Proposed solution: Having an internal anagram and advanced search such as the one we have in French Wiktionary, to find anagrams but also words with a specific sound or with a sequence of letter and a grammatical class for example. It could be based on a parsed dump to have part of speech distinction as well (only in nouns, only in verbs, etc.).
