speak chinese like a native

Expand your vocab - no new character!

Posted by goulnik April 3, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

I finally got around to doing what I wanted to do for a long time, i.e. starting from a list of characters I know, prepare a lists of all words containing those characters.

I needed a dictionary file for this, so as a trial run, this little script uses CEDICT, but this can easily be changed. As a trial, I used the recent Upper Intermediate lesson Saved by the Gong - Maths, with comments. From 200+ characters, it generates over 5600 definitions, i.e. all possible combinations of those 200 characters from words in the CEDICTionary.

It's all JavaScript, using a flat dictionary text file, so performance may not be impressive, so feel free to download / modify.
