The colour of the text is mostly coded according to the language used: Aboriginal, English, Esperanto, French, Latin and scientific, Melanesian, Maori and other Polynesian. However, where a word has been thoroughly assimilated into English, it appears as an English word.
This dictionary is a work in progress. We still need more illustrations. Readers are welcome to submit suitable small digital images for things such as animals and plants in jpeg format.
