yahoo taiwan dictionary overhaul

May 27, 2010, 03:15 AM posted in General Discussion

I use as my primary online dictionary and as sort of a rough check to see if words learned in Chinesepod and heard on ppstream are actually used in Taiwan. It just got an overhaul, it looks like, for the first time in the 3 years or so I've been using it. After using it for a few minutes my impressions are mixed... it no longer includes bopomofo and tones (not especially accurate before anyway) but there are now example sentences, related words and "online references" which includes yahoo knowledge, web and image search.

Hey ryanchild

Thanks for the info. I've never really used Yahoo for a dictionary before...

I like the web and picture links but I'm not sure that is enough to draw me into using it, although I do like your point of using it to see if the word is commonly used in Taiwan.

You know any other good Taiwanese sites to aid studying?
