Here are additional notes on working with Shona language pages involving Shona-English dictionary, English-Shona dictionary, and Shona sample sentences. I have used the English-Shona dictionary only as a typical example in order to explain how to work with these pages.
The text box above the word list has an autocomplete feature that updates the word list as you type.
You can then select the word you need meaning for whenever it appears in the list
below the text box. Words in the list may contain spelling errors and it is for this reason that you
need to select words from the list
since only words in this list can be searched. You can scroll down to view additional words. See Figure 1
Please note that the word list presented here is not inclusive.
Click Search after whole word is displayed in the top box (see Figure 2) to view the meaning of the word or phrase and the corresponding
Shona word(s). See Figure 3.
The selected word or phrase's meaning and corresponding Shona word(s) only change when the
button is selected. You can scroll down to view additional word meanings for word with multiple meanings that exceed the height of the Meanings window. Use the scrollbar
located on the left of the advertisement sidebar. See Figure 3
For instance, if you replace the word "run
" with the word "rest
of the word "rest
" and corresponding Shona word(s) will only appear, as shown in
, when the Search
button is selected.
Should you continue to have problem working with the above word list send me, Martin Shumba
, an e-mail with details
of your difficulties. Any suggestions you have to improve information offered here would be greatly appreciated. E-mail any comments and/or suggestions you have to Martin Shumba
