Additional functions

This year, the Hyper English Dictionary added four major features; (1) links were added from English words to example sentences; (2) sound data of English words; (3) groups of English words; and (4) search functions by suffixes. These alterations make it easier for learners to search and understand English words. In this thesis, I focus on adding search functions by suffixes.

Table 1: Functions of Hyper English Dictionary
Number of English words 20000
Number of stems 97
Number of example sentences 10669
Number of preffixes 72
