Title: German Word Formation Dictionary Browser
Submitter: Marc Domenig
Description: Dear language enthusias

There is a new free online application: our Word Formation Browser for German, based on a dictionary of 170'000 lexemes.

See for yourself at http://www.canoo.net and explore information that was never available before in that form: visualization and extensive browsing of German word formation dependencies within a comprehensive dictionary.

The Word Formation Browser uses a revolutionary Ultra Light Client technology that is particularly suited for dictionary presentation over a network: the data stays on the server while the end user is offered a sophisticated GUI simulating a full blown stand-alone windows-based application, overcoming the limitations of HTML.

The Ultra Light Client technology is available a http://www.canoo.com/ulc

Check it out and see for yourself !

Kind Regards
Marc Domenig
p.s.: the standard version of Ultra Light Client does not run on the Macintosh because the Mac OS 9.x or lower does not support Java 2.0.

A trial version of Ultra Light Client for Mac OS 9.x is available upon request.
