Dear amchigele baa.ndhavaas,
Thanks to community members, a lot of progress has been made by the community project since the last update. (courtesy mostly of members and moderators of our beloved amchigeleuae group)
In a nut shell the major updates are as follows:
1. The project now has an astounding 4000 plus words in the dictionary and more words are being added on a regular basis.
3. A new 'AMCHIGELE KONKANI: PROVERBS, METAPHORS, IDIOMS & EUPHEMISMS' section has been compiled, from the 'Proverbs & Sayings' contributions made in the group.
This page now has over 350 entries. Contributions are from Veena Shanbhogue, Udyavara Suresh Kamath, Sabitha Shenoy, Archana Mallya ,Sheshagiri Shenoy & Srikanth Mallya.
Ofcourse you can go to each of the above pages by navigating from the main page i.e www.savemylanguage.org
Note: (Fonts for Kannada & Devanaagri) If you can't view the Kannada or Devanaagri fonts you need to do the following
1. Devanaagri: These fonts can be downloaded from the BBC Hindi website at http://www.bbchindi.com . Click on the 'Hindi Font Download' link on this page and follow the steps to install devanaagri fonts.
2. Kannada: These fonts can be downloaded from http://www.baraha.com/baraha.htm link. Click on the image and install the software.
Both the websites bbc and baraha are well known and reliable sites.
Please try the above two methods till Udyavara Suresh Kamath and I can come up with a concrete solution for the fonts issue. Windows Vista operating system thankfully installs 'Indic' fonts by default.
Please pass on your comments / suggestions on the project. And ofcourse do keep your word contributions going !!!
jai ko.nkaNi !!! jai samaaja !!!
devu bare koro !!!
